Autumn Term

During this term, the children will be reading and working with a selection of Julia Donaldson books. We are going to be looking at the rules we should follow to punctuate our work correctly.  We will also be looking books linked to Africa and writing information booklets on different African animals. 

The children will be counting in different ways including steps of 1, 2, 3, 5, 10, and 100. Place value will be a main focus in the early days of year 2 helping to develop your child’s understanding of numerical order. The children will be reading, writing and ordering numbers up to 3 digits. We will then be moving onto calculation methods, shape and telling the time.

In our topic work we will be starting with a mini topic about where we live before moving onto our main topic of Africa, including our visit to Knowsley Safari Park.

In Science we will be learning about humans including animals, this will include a visit from the Dogs Trust.  In P.E. we will be doing gymnastics and games. 

We are looking forward to a busy term ahead. 

Dogs Trust

On Wednesday 20th September Year Two had a visit from Dogs Trust. LJ came and taught us all about how to be a responsible dog owner and we got to meet the very cute, Winnie. In the afternoon we had another session where we learnt all about the different senses. We had a fun day and the children learnt a lot.
