Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!


You can follow us on Twitter to see our learning in action! #tmssyear2



Spring 1 : This half term year two are exploring the concepts of Health and Wellbeing



Our key texts this term are Last Stop On Market Street and Sharks  The children have been learning how to write reports and  use descriptive language to create a scene.



In Maths we will continue to explore place value and will also investigate how the inverse operation helps us to solve number problems. We will be solving mathematical problems using measures and money. We will continue to use place value and practical resources such as diennes and number frames to help us to add and subtract larger numbers mentally and using written methods. We will also be problem solving in a variety of contexts. 



In Geography we will be learning about where our food comes from and the concepts of fair trade and food miles. We will chart the journey of a banana from Colombia and also find out what it is like to be a banana farmer on a plantation. We will be using maps and atlases as well as investigating how humans affect the planet we live on. 



We will be investigating how food is central to faith in many religions looking at the concepts abstinence, fasting  and  food for celebration.


We will investigate what makes a healthy meal and also learn about simple food chains. 



As we are once again in lockdown our focus will move towards internet safety and using the internet safely as well as images and how they can be used safely - e.g. the use of avatars instead of real photos.
