Year 2 2021 - 2022
Welcome to year 2!
Miss Brake and Miss McClellan
Wriggle and crawl!
Grab your coat and pooter – we’re going out and about on a minibeast hunt. Sweep your nets in ponds and lift up logs to see who’s home. Then set up a minibeast laboratory and observe their every move. Add notes and labels and ask research questions, just like a real entomologist. Learn about bees and worms and butterflies too. Can you make a food chain to show who eats who? Carry out investigations to find out more, like how far a snail travels in a day and how a spider catches its prey. Then animate to show how your favourite bug transforms from one form to another, perhaps a caterpillar to a butterfly or a maggot to a fly. On your belly, legs at the ready, it’s time to wriggle and crawl.
For children in year 2 it is really important that they can recall their number bonds to 10, 20 and 100. This is a really great website for practising these and for times tables later in the year.
This half term we will be exploring the book 'The last wolf.' We will use the story to investigate endangered animals and the threats to their habitat's before writing a persuasive letter.
Homework will be assigned on Deepening Understanding. Your child should use the login details in their reading journal to access their homework.
