Year 2

Our topic for the Spring Term is all about life in the Polar regions.

We will be looking at similarities and differences between life in Birmingham and life in the Polar regions. Children will learn to use a compass and will follow simple directions. They will name and locate the seven continents and five oceans. They will also carry out research and produce a class book about animals and their habitats.


In Maths we will be focusing on subtraction calculations. Please help support your child at home by working through 'Mathletics' activities everyday. A little calculation practice everyday can make all the difference to your child's learning.

In Literacy we will continue writing diary entries, stories, recounts and poetry as well as reading more traditional tales. Children need to be very secure in their use of full stops and capital letters, so that they can begin introducing more punctuation into their writing. It is also vital they learn and apply their weekly spellings in order to improve their writing.

As children will be preparing for their SATS test this year it is really important for you to read with them daily as this will improve their vocabulary and develop their comprehension skills. We will be running parent workshops throughout the Spring Term to inform you on how to best support your child at home.

In science we will focus on 'Living things and their habitats'. During PE we will be learning dance movements and how to put these together to create a sequence.
