In our maths learning we will be looking at place value, ordering and comparing numbers to 100 and adding and subtracting 1 digit and 2 digit numbers with a focus on mastering the number line method building on our number bond knowledge from Year 1. We will also be learning our x2, x5 and x10 times tables. As we end the term, Year 2 will be completing the geometry (shape) unit. Numbots is a fantastic way for your child to practise the various maths units stated above.


Welcome back to school and starting a new Autumn term in Year 2.

The non-fiction texts we will explore are about the Dragon who stalks Manchester

Next, there will be a unit Living things and their Habitats, we will explore different habitats, food chains and micro-habitats around our school environment.


Our geographical skills will be put to the test as we learn about physical and human features of our local area. We will be using these skills to explore the physical features of the four countries in the UK and the surrounding seas.


Our history learning will take us right back to the Moon landing in 1969 and various explorers who have significantly changed history such as Chrisopher Columbus and Ernest Shakleton.


Our religious education will focus on what it means to be a Christian in Britain today. PSHE will be on the Zones of Regulations, in line with the rest of the school.
