Welcome to Year 2!
In English this term the children will be reading and completing work on 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 at books linked to Africa and writing information booklets on different African animals.
In Maths, 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 completing work on animals and materials in Science. In Topic lessons, children will complete Geography work on Halifax and then move onto looking at Kenya in Africa.
We are looking forward to visits to Ogden Water this Friday and Knowsley Safari Park at the beginning of October.
We hope Year 2 will be an exciting year, filled with learning opportunities.
