Autumn 1

During Autumn 1, the children will learn to retell stories and focus on the key vocabulary in the story. We will focus on grammar elements of the story and use adjectives to describe nouns. We will use this to write a full sentences using a capital letter and a full stop and ensuring we are forming our letters correctly. Please practise handwriting and listen to your children read daily.


In maths, we will understand how to represent numbers in different ways using manipulatives such as: straws, numicon and dienes. The children will partition numbers using a part-whole model looking at how many tens and ones the number shows. All children in year two need to count forwards and backwards from any number up to 100.

Our topic in History will be The Great Fire of London. The children will learn all the facts and retell the story through reading extracts from Samuel Pepys diary.


On Friday afternoons, we will be setting work on Google Classroom for the children to complete at home. Here you will also find assemblies, Music and PE activities. We will be showing the children in school how to complete tasks and how to upload work. If you need any support or guidance with uploading work, we will help you. 


Please check our area on the website and Google Classroom for regular updates. If you have any questions about the learning taking place this half term, please speak to your child’s class teacher.
