This term we have decided to carry on with magic as our topic, as we had so much fun, and combine it with castles! This topic is history based and links to our KS1 trip to Skipton castle, I hope you're all as excited as me :)
In maths this term we will be recapping our learning from the year and making sure that any areas covered are secure.
In English this term we are doing work revolving around the book 'Leon and the place between' which is a magical book about a circus act.
If you have any questions about our learning or anything else regarding year 2 please come in and see me.
Please look on our homework page for this half term's homework for English, Maths and Topic.
During Key Stage 1, there is a big focus on developing basic number skills. That means securing a good understanding of place value, and recognising number bonds to 20. Practising these skills frequently will help children’s mathematical thinking throughout school. Number bonds are essential to the understanding of maths. Children in Year 2 learn their number bonds to 20, that is being able to quickly recall the total of any two numbers up to 20, e.g. 5 + 9 = 14, rather than having to count on to find the answer. At the end of Year 2, all children will sit the National Curriculum Tests for Key Stage 1. This will include a short arithmetic test of 15 questions, and a second paper of broader mathematics which will last around 35 minutes.
