Autumn Term

Autumn Term 2019

September

What a brilliant start to the new Autumn term! The children have all settled well into year 2, and have been working hard. This month we will be focusing on-

Maths- Place value, numbers to 100, counting, addition and subtraction.

Literacy- looking at nouns, adverbs, adjectives, conjunctions, expanded noun phrases. We will be reading the book the tear thief in lessons. Our end of day reading book is The BFG.

Science- animals including humans- we will be looking at the 7 life processes and learning all about animals and how they change and grow.

RE- New beginnings, we have had lots of fun learning about our living and learning statements! Have a look at the photos of us acting out the parable of Zacchaeus!

Topic- Britain a long time ago- we are looking forward to our trip to Carlisle castle this month! We will be learning all about the Battle of Hastings and what life was like in medieval times.

PE- PE will be on a Monday and Thursday. Please make sure earrings are not worn and full PE kit is in school!

Music-we are kicking off the start of the term with lots of singing, and identifying instruments and sounds- we are looking forward to lots of noisy lessons!
Computing- Mrs Harrison is leading computing in year 2, and we will be looking at coding- let's see who can make the aeroplane fly!

Here are some pictures to show you what we have been getting up to-
