Year 2 (Honeygold) 2019 - 2020

Mrs Fosker

Welcome to Honeygold Class!

Our text this half term is Jack and the Bean Stalk. We will be developing our speaking and listening skills by acting out the tale. We will also be rewriting the tale, changing the main characters to ones which we create, living in a new setting. Our key focus this half term is to work on handwriting and presentation skills. In addition to our English lessons, children have a daily phonics and SPAG lesson. During our daily guided reading sessions, children will practise their weekly spellings, Year 2 common exception words and developing their comprehension skills.

In Maths we are primarily focusing on Multiplication and Division. We will consolidate our knowledge of the 2, 5, and 10 timestables through calculations and reasoning. First, we will work on making equal groups, moving onto understanding equal groups as repeated addition then writing multiplication facts. Once we have a greater working understanding of timetable knowledge, this will be applied to division.

During Science we will learn about living things and their habitats. We will be learning about how animals change and grow, their basic needs and discover why different animals are suited to particular habitats.

Our topic this half term is the Victorians. We will be embarking on a journey back in time to a Victorian school, making comparisons to how it is different to school life now. We will name different Victorian objects and clothing, by discussing aspects of life in a Victorian household. We will also be learning about Queen Victoria and her role in Britain, during her reign.

In Computing we will be learning about using the internet, ensuring that we are able to use the web safely, and to use it to search and find information. We will also learn how to communicate safely online.
