Year 2

Real Life Superheroes!

Welcome back to the second half of our Summer term!  We are so excited about our new topic because we will be learning all about Real Life Superheroes!


In Maths, we will be starting the term by learning about position and direction.  We will be finding out about money and how we pay with it as well as calculating change.  We will be recapping learning to tell the time to half past before telling the time to quarter past, quarter to and to the nearest 5 minutes.


In Science, we will be continuing to learn about habitats and how animals in certain habitats rely upon each other.

We will also learning about the importance of healthy eating and exercise for humans. Finally, we will be learning all about materials and their uses.

In English, we will be focussing on the text Journey by Aaron Becker.  This is a wordless book which we will be using to encourage the children to write predictions, diary entries as well as character and setting descriptions.   We will also be using the text to link to our Geography for non-fiction writing including landscape descriptions, a letter and a balanced argument.


In History, we will be going back in time again, this time to learn about real life super heroes, such as Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole and why they were so important.

Please ensure that your kit is labelled with your name and is in school.  You will need it for indoor and outdoor PE.

PE is on Mondays


Spelling Tests will be on Friday mornings after having one week to learn them.
