Year 2 is a key year for the children because they are preparing to move into Key Stage 2, therefore there is a much greater emphasis placed on acquiring more formal academic skills. In literacy, all children are becoming more confident, independent writers and should be able to write without adult support. In maths, children are able to use lots of different ways to add and subtract. They are beginning to multiply and divide, and should know their 2, 3, 5 and 10 times table as a minimum. Children continue to be taught letter sounds and spelling patterns.
The children have the opportunity to study many exciting topics, designed to capture their interest and make learning relevant and exciting. Our topic for the autumn term is 'Fire Fire!' and we will be welcoming the fire brigade into school as well as setting things alight ourselves!!
