Y2 Spring 1 2020
Spring is in the air!
Welcome back to Year 2, we are excited to be back and feeling refreshed after the Christmas break. The children have come back brilliantly, ready to learn and have shown a great attitude so far.
Our English learning will include:
We are starting by looking at the text ‘Flat Stanley’ by Jeff Brown and writing descriptions of the main character. We will then be creating our own adventure for Stanley to go on.
After this we will be moving onto writing an information text all about the 1960s. We will finish the first half term by looking at some poetry.
Our guided reading texts for this term are: ‘The Tiger Who Came To Tea’, ‘Meerkat Mail’ and ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’.
Our Maths learning will include:
During this half term, we will be learning to multiply numbers by making arrays and counting in groups of 2, 3, 5 and 10. We will also be learning multiplication facts for the 2, 5 and 10 times table off by heart.
After this we will be learning to find related division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 times tables, as well as dividing by sharing and grouping numbers.
We will also be learning to recognise and find the fractions ½ ¼ 1/3 and ¾, as well as counting with fractions and recognising the equivalence of ½ and 2/4
