Year 2

Welcome to Year Two!

Spring Term A

Our connector is...

Tickets Please


This half term we will be focusing on History. We will be looking at buses and how they have changed over time. We will think about how the bus has had an impact on people in the local area and how they have improved lives. This will include a visit to The London Transport Museum where children will have a chance to handle artifacts to develop their knowledge and understanding further. Please talk to your children about how the local area has changed within living memory. Children have been ecouraged to think about how they have changed with the passing of time. Please send in a photo of them as a baby that they can share with the class.





We are reading the story Mrs Armitage Queen of the Road. The children will be exploring the themes in the story and using this as a starting point to create their own story. We will continue thinking about punctuation including commas in a list. 



In Science we will be investigating the seven life processes and finding out what living things need to survive. The children will understand the difference between things that are dead and things that have never been alive.

In Maths we will be consolidating our understanding of addition and subtraction and using this to solve problems.  We will continue to develop  our understanding of multiplication and explore the relationship with division. Daily arithmetic sessions will continue to consolidate the children's knowledge opf the four operations. We will also be interpreting and constructing simple pictograms, tally charts, block diagrams and simple tables.

We will also visit the Library on the same day as PE, so please remember to bring your library book to school on 

Monday for 2B

Wednesday for 2C 

Thursday for 2S.



We will change six children's reading books each day. Your child will be told which day they are changing their book. However, it is very important that your child brings their reading book to school every day. Should your child need to change their book again during the week, we will of course do so.

Please read with your child and ask them questions about what they have read. Please ask if you have any questions about reading and how you can support your child at home.

We're looking forward to a fun filled half term. If at anytime there is anything you wish to discuss, please do speak to the year 2 team.

Kind regards,

Miss Bell, Miss Chand and Ms Sharma.
