Year 2


We begin our History topic this half term by introducing a significant event from the past. Can you guess what it might be? That’s right, The Great Fire of London! The children are going to learn about what life was like 350 years ago and why the Great Fire of London was such as significant event through a range of activities. We’re sure the children will enjoy this interesting History topic.

In English we are starting the half term off by learning about “The Ridgeback Dragon”. We will then write our own reports about our own species of dragon. Within this we will be practising lots of spelling, punctuation and grammar.

In Maths we will be learning to use money to create different amounts. And solve problems. Please spend time with your child looking at money to help them recognise the value of each coin and add some together.

We will also be learning about plants and life cycles this term by comparing how seeds and bulbs grow in Science. We will use the skills of using different lines and shading in Art to display some of our findings.
