Year 2

 LS Lowry  What’s happening this half term?

English

We will be looking at a variety of texts in the Summer term to develop our writing in year 2. The genres we will cover are; narratives, recounts, instructions and non-chronological reports. The books we will be looking at are; Dougal’s Deep Sea Diary, The Disgusting Sandwich and Monster in the Hood. 

Maths

We use the White Rose Mastery Scheme of work as the basis for our maths curriculum at Dane Bank Primary School. In the summer term, the children in year 2 will recap on their multiplication and division. We will then start to learn; fractions, measurement and geometry. 

In addition to this, we will be developing children’s fluency through our KIRFS (key instant recall facts). 

The children in year 2 will also be using Times Table Rockstars which is an excellent interactive resource online for practicing your times tables.

Topic

Our Topic work will also be based around a question: What do we know about the Victorians and the way they lived? In this unit we will learn about Queen Victoria and how Victorian children’s lives were different to their own. We will also look at the work of LS Lowry and study his paintings. 

Science

Our Science work will be based around a question: Why wouldn’t a dinosaur make a good pet? In this unit we will explore living things and their habitats.
