Year 2 – Panthers

Latest Updates

Weekly Information

English: Year Two will begin their first week learning about the Royal Navy. We will explore ships, what life was like aboard now and in the past. The children will be asking the question: ‘What I would like to know is…..’

Maths: The children will continue learning about units of time. We will recap telling the time to the nearest hour, half hour and quarter hour. Year Two will conclude their learning by looking at a quarter to and five minute intervals.

Topic: Launch day for our new topic will give the children opportunities to immerse themselves into the life of working on and around ships. We will have a lot of fun and will meet a real life Navy soldier!

General Information

Year Two will be learning about a significant person that helped shape and change lives. The children will be thinking about life now and in the past, making comparisons to our lives as they are now in 2020.

The children will begin this topic with a very exciting launch. The day will provide Year Two with rich and varied opportunities to experience knowing about what line in the Navy is really like. They will be sending messages using Sophomore as well as singing and using art skills.
Part of this unit is centred around the amazing trip to HMS Victory and the Royal Navy museum. The children will be learning about the different jobs crew mates would have endured and looking at where Lord Nelson once worked on board the ship. We will look at the life of Lord Nelson and learn about who he was a child and when he had grown up. We will write about his family and his most famous battle. Year Two will learn how to write a letter pretending that they are Lord Nelson himself!

In Maths, we will be revising our place value skills. We will recap addition and subtraction, working out how to add and take away two plus/minus two digits. take The children will continue to develop their reasoning skills and solve an APE challenge each Friday.

In Science, we will be exploring different materials and how these can be used to make a waterproof ship.

We are now embarking upon the 4th term at school. We would like to ask for continued support with weekly reading(our expectation in Y2 is that children read five times each week,) spellings and ‘Challenge Yourself.’
As per normal, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to come and see one of us.

With so much thanks
The Year Two Team
