We aim to always be a flamingo in a flock of pigeons.
We are all looking forward to the challenges and hard work that await us in Year 2.
Our last term together will be a busy one so please do keep checking in as information will be uploaded regularly.
This term our English lessons will be exploring different rhyming patterns and different poems studying how they scan, which rhyming patterns they follow and creating our own. We hope to set some of these to music as well.
In maths we will be recapping and extending key skills as well as focusing on being able to tell the time accurately using both analogue and digital language and solving problems using time. We will move onto quickly applying the correct operation to solve problems and using our times table knowledge to solve problems alongside developing our formal written methods of addition, subtraction and multiplication so that we are ready for KS2 in September!

So far we have learnt a little about the Fire of London and as the term progresses, so will our knowledge of this event.
During the Fire of London, Samuel Pepys buried his important documents, his wine collection and some Parmesan cheese in his garden to keep them safe from the fire. Year 2 are thinking up which of their treasured possessions they would have buried. Watch this space for their ideas......
