Throughout the autumn term our topic will be 'Fire and Ice'. During autumn 1, we will be exploring the Great Fire of London and our United Kingdom. Please take a look at our long term plan for further information about your child's learning journey this academic year. 


PE in Year 2 will take place on a Monday and a Thursday. Please ensure your children wears their PE kit to school on these days. 


Spelling books are returned to school on a Monday so that your child is able to bring home their new weekly spellings and common exception words after their lesson for you to practice at home. 


Please ensure that reading books and records are in school daily

Autumn Term 1 


Instruction Writing 


This half term we have been learning how to write instructions. First, we learnt about the features of instructions and how to follow them. We practised using imperative verbs and adverbials of time to verbally give instructions. Then we followed instructions to make bread before we wrote our own version. We loved making bread - and enjoyed eating it more! 

First Aid


Year 2 enjoyed learning some basic first aid skills that would help someone in need. They learnt how to bandage a wound, CPR and what to do if someone was choking. Take a look at our learning this afternoon. 



In art this half term we are focusing on developing our drawing skills. For our first lesson, we explored how to use charcoal to create different lines, shapes and textures on a page. We were given a set of words and had to draw what that word represented such as enormous, soft, smooth and powerful.
