Welcome to Year 2
During the year, the children read a variety of exciting and engaging texts which help them develop their comprehension skills and form the basis of a wide range of written tasks. In addition they continue to build their phonics knowledge which supports both their reading and spelling. In maths the children develop their growing knowledge and understanding of shape and measures, fractions, place value and the four operations and apply this to a variety of problem solving and reasoning activities. In science they develop their investigative skills by learning about the properties of materials as well as investigating habitats and what plants need in order to survive. Within history lessons, they learn about Remembrance Day, The Great Fire of London and a wide range of Historical figures and how the actions of these people have changed our world today. In art lessons the children develop their use of line and colour in a variety of mediums and draw influence from living artists as well as some more well-known artists. They travel around the world in geography discovering the continents and developing their map skills whilst in computing the children work in Word, Power Point and Excel and learn how to take and edit digital photographs. A variety of exciting theme days, workshops and performances support the wider curriculum throughout the year including a history workshop to enact the Great fire of London bringing learning alive and a trip to Wisley to understand plants in a variety of environment.
