Year 2 - Butterflies and Ladybirds
Spring Term 2020
During Spring 1, we will be focusing on the following areas:
Year 2 will be reading A Midsummer Night’s Dream: A Shakespeare Story written by Andrew Matthews. The children will be looking at the theme of love, magic and dreams. We will be writing recounts, narratives and play scripts.
The focus of maths will be looking at money. This will involve identifying coins, making amounts and solving money problems. We will then move onto Shape and will be looking at 2D and 3D shapes. Children will learn to identify their properties and drawing them. Finally, we will be learning Statistics and children will be able to draw and interpret bar charts, pie charts and pictograms.
The topic will be Living Things and their Habitats. Children will be able to identify different types of habitats in the UK and around the world. They will also be looking at how living things are dependent on each other and will be able to create food chains.
Year 2 have an exciting Spring 1 where we will be producing a performance of Mermaids vs Pirates. The children will be acting, dancing and singing in roles. A performance date will be announced later on this term.
PE days will remain the same. Ladybirds have PE on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Butterflies have PE on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
We hope you all had a lovely Christmas break and wish you a Happy New Year.
Miss Brooks, Miss Kipps and Mrs Osmenaj.
