Year 2

English

We will be consolidating our learning from Year 1 this half term - revising our phonics and our Year 1 common exception words. To begin with, we will have our reading lessons in small groups. Our writing work this half term will link to our Pirates topic. We'll be reading 'The Pirates Next Door' and 'The Pirates of Scurvy Sands' by Johnny Duddle. We will write a range of texts linked to the story.

Maths

In Maths this half term, we will be developing our understanding of place value and addition and subtraction. We will practise counting in 10s and revise our number bonds in our KIRF sessions.
