Our Learning this term



Spring 1

Topic: Mixed Up Fairy Tales

This term our topic is Mixed Up Fairy Tales. The children will have the opportunity to read lots of different books and eventually build up to writing their own version of a traditional tale. Our Grammar is focusing on past and present tense and suffixes and the children will get to practise this within their literacy writing.


In maths the children will be revisiting in more depth place value and multiplication and division. This term there will also be a big focus on problem solving. Using the knowledge we already have and applying this to different word problems.


This term will mainly focus on using suffixes as well as the Year 2 common exception words and we will be focusing on applying these in our writing. New spellings are sent home every Friday with a spelling test the following Friday morning. The children will also be given opportunities to practise their spellings during the week.    

History & Geography

This term in Geography we are looking at and comparing weather patterns in hot and cold countries and learning how climate can affect human and physical features.

Don't Forget

Every Friday we have a spelling challenge linked to the spelling pattern that we have learnt that week. Please check your child's Home School Diary for any updates at the end of the week.

This year we have also introduced weekly arithmetic homework based on number bonds and simple additions. These are sent home every Friday alongside spellings and will be collected in by the following Thursday at the latest. 

 PE takes place on Friday morning.    Dragonflies swim on Monday afternoons and Ladybirds have a coach Monday mornings for Games.
