Year 2 Team

Date 23.05.2022
Curriculum area  We are learning to… 




This week in Literacy we are going to be looking back at the pictures we took in science last week of habitats and micro habitats around our school grounds and we will be writing a fact file all about what we have learnt about these habitats, and their occupants, over these last few weeks. 


In spelling and phonics we will be looking at homophones and near homophones. We will practise reading them and using them in sentences. 


This week we are going doing lots of revision and consolidation work on the maths learning we have done this year. We will also be doing some maths challenge activities themed around the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. 


In Science/D.T this week we are going to be making our own Bug Hotels! We will think about the work and research we did last week and use this to help us make microhabitats for minibeasts living in the academy grounds. 

Art and Design

This week we are going to be getting crafty ready to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee! We will be making flags, pom poms, and a class fabric square to contribute to our school tapestry. We will also be making sandwiches to bring to our school tea party! 


Please note this is a basic overview of the planning for this week. It is impossible to cover in this outline all the learning that takes place during a week!  We also believe in listening to your children and responding to their interests and ideas therefore all our planning is flexible. Please note some of the learning will take place across more than one week and during some weeks the learning focus may not cover all curriculum areas.
