Curriculum Information Spring 2018

Literacy
In Year 2, the children will be working on spelling and grammar through our literacy lessons to expand on the rules we have been looking at in phonics and be linked to our literacy work.

In literacy, we will be working on our individual targets, including spelling rules, handwriting and using more adventurous vocabulary. We will describe settings from story books and writing non – fiction texts. We will explore, perform and write our own rhythmic and rhyming poems. In reading, we will continue to learn a range of strategies to help us read and infer. We will also explore more poetry and non – fiction when reading in class or in our groups.

Maths
We will continue to learn about multiplication, including times tables and word problems. We will explore division through sharing and grouping. We will use our division knowledge to learn about fractions of shapes and numbers. We will also recap our knowledge of  2D and 3D shapes and learn more about their properties.

 

IPC
This half term we being our exciting science topic called “Earth our Home”. We will be learning about a range of animals and their habitats. We will explore the features of living things and researching the needs of humans and animals.  We will link this to the stories we read in literacy.

RE
This half term, we will be looking at the significance of clothes in different religions.


PE
