Year 2 Team

Date 17.01.2022
Curriculum area  We are learning to… 

This week, we are introducing contractions. The children will create contraction strips to show the contraction is formed.  

They will use these contraction strips throughout the week, putting those contractions into sentences.  


This week in maths we will be moving onto division. We will be learning how to use arrays to solve division problems. We will solve word problems which use division. We will look at fact families within multiplication and division.  


Discovery Dog 

This week we will be helping Discovery Dog answer a very important question from his sister Nora…Are older people always taller? 

The children will measure friends in their class to compare their age and height in order to answer the question. 

Art In art we will be continuing our work on Henry Rousseau. We will be adding some colour to our art pieces. The children will mix colours and add depth to their pictures using shade and tint. 



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.
