Welcome to Year 2!
Our topic this term is:
Our English work will focus around ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ this term. Children will write character descriptions, setting descriptions and letters.
We will work towards adding and subtracting two 2-digit numbers and solving problems. We will then move on to Multiplication and Division where our focus will be the 2, 5 and 10 times tables and related division facts. The children will also complete their learning on Capacity before moving on to Money.
Here are the spelling lists for this term. There will be weekly tests on a Friday.

Year 2 investigated different materials to begin to understand why different objects float. We made predictions, discussed observations and recorded our findings. Some foil boats designed by pupils held over 100 marbles! Find some photos from our experiment below:
