Curriculum Overview 2017-18

This term the children in Year 2 will be studying the cross-curricular theme of The Great Fire of London. We will be learning about the diary of Samuel Pepys and what it was like to live in London during that time. In the second half of the term there will be a Geography bias; “China”. We will look at the human and physical features of China.
In English the children will be studying a collection of traditional tales, including ‘Red Riding Hood’ and 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. They will also be looking at non-fiction texts linked to our cross-curricular themes. In Maths they will be strengthening their understanding of partitioning numbers into tens and ones. They will also be focussing on a range of problem solving, looking at the mathematics needed to find the solution and explaining what they have done. Every child will be set specific targets, which we will be working on this half term. These targets have been designed to raise attainment in both English and Maths.
In science the children will be studying “Sound” and “Materials”.
P.E. will be on Tuesdays
This term the class will be going on three Educational visits. These visits will provide a fun and valuable learning experience which will link with teaching back at school. This was highlighted as a strong feature of our school by OFSTED on their last visit.
