Learning for Life

Y2 Curriculum


Dear Parents and Carers

This half term our topic is ‘On the Farm’.  Our focus text for this half term is 'Charlottes web' which we will base all of our English learning on.  Our outcome for our topic will be to create a dish in DT from fruits and vegetables to share with our families at the end of the half term.  


Through our topic work we will be recognising how farms have changed beyond the children’s living memories. We will compare images of sources and discuss their effectiveness.  We will describe layouts of farms and the reasons for their layout.


Our science unit this half term is called ‘Life’.  We will be noticing that animals, including humans, have offspring which grow into adults.  We will also be identifying if objects in our environment are alive, dead or never Alive? 


Our focus this half term is Fractions.  We will be recognising, finding, naming and writing fractions, 1/3 , 1/4 ,2/4 , and 3/4 of a length, shape, set of objects or quantity. 


We will be working on whole class reading comprehension sessions this term where we will be using the ‘reading dogs’ to answer questions about the text. 


In PE we will be continuing to work on developing tactics for invasion games with a focus on hockey and balance in moving to music in dance.


In computing we will be developing our programming skills and working on our knowledge of online safety and how to stay safe in an online community.


In art we are going to be focusing on our drawing skills and experimenting with creating a range of patterns and textures with a single pencil.


Our topic is 'Special symbols and objects'.  We will be looking at symbols that are special to our community, the Christian and Buddhist religion.

As always, if you have any information books or feel that you could support our topic in any way please let us know.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Jackson
