Year 2


What’s happening this half term?


In English we will be looking at a book called ‘The Great Explorer’ by Chris Judge. In this book we will look closely at the Northern Lights and then write our own poems. We will then move onto looking at ‘The Tear Thief’ by Carol Ann Duffy. In this book we will look at the similes and metaphors used and explore the character of The Tear Thief.


In Maths we will be revising and recapping on addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in preparation for the SATs


Our Topic work will also be based around a question: Who were the greatest explorers? In this unit we will learn about the lives of significant individuals in the past who have contributed to national and international achievements.


Our Science work will be based around a question: Would a dinosaur make a good pet? In this unit we will explore living things in their habitats.
