Year 2 (Honeygold) 2020 - 2021

Mr Jalaf

Assistant Headteacher

Welcome to Honeygold Class!

Mrs Jones and I are very much looking forward to working with Honeygold Class this year, especially in light of the year we have had so far!

This term we will be spending quite a lot of time, continuing to develop the skills and stamina for reading and writing.  We will be developing our speaking and listening skills by acting out the texts assigned for this term, as we explore recounts, diary and instruction writing. Our key focus this term is to work on handwriting.  In addition to our English lessons, children will have a daily phonics and SPAG lesson. During our whole class daily guided reading session, children will develop their comprehension skills, along with reading at word level.  In light of the missed schooling for the tail end of Year 1, we are keen for the children to be exposed to daily reading in school, so as to build a love for, and of reading.

In Maths we are primarily focusing on number and place value this term.  As we continue into the tail end of the autumn term, we will consolidate our knowledge of the 2, 5, and 10 times tables 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 then be applied to division.  Maths will continue to be taught through the whole school maths scheme: Power Maths.  Children will record their work in the workbooks, along with using the maths journals, as and when required.

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

Our topic this half term is the Great Fire of London. 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. This will be taught through a cross curricular link, with a specific geographical focus on London and the UK.

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.
