Pirates of the Caribbean
Welcome to Year 2
In English, we will be starting the term by having a poetry week. We will be learning the poem the Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear. We will then be moving to fiction using two great texts, the Pirates Next Door and the Night Pirates. We will be describing characters and settings, writing a message in a bottle and creating a wanted poster. In non-fiction, we will be writing a newspaper report, writing a set of instructions as well as creating an information sheet.
In Maths, we will moving onto multiplication and division involving 2s, 5s and 10s. Learning about statistics by creating tally charts and drawing and interpreting pictograms. We will also be continuing to develop our knowledge of 2D and 3D shapes and fractions.
In science, we will be learning about how animals change and grow and what we need to do to look after animals. Linking to our topic, we will be learning about habitats and how plants grow in hot countries. We will also be learning about materials and which one is best to make a raft from.
