What will the children be learning this half-term?

Year 2 had a great start to the school year by exploring and learning about our local area of Whitton and Twickenham and how this compares to different areas of the world. In maths the children enjoyed their hands on learning of adding and subtracting using base 10 equipment, and in English, we had great fun bringing their class text, ‘Traction Man’ to life by creating their own story boxes and making their own version of ‘Traction Man’.

Last half term we had an historical focus whereby the children jumped back in time to research Britain’s past and the wider world. We looked at five significant people from history: Mary Anning, Isambard Brunel, Frida Kahlo, Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong. As well as learning about their achievements, we thought about how their work still has an impact today.

This term we are continuing with an historical focus by looking at a significant event from history: the Great Fire of London. Our core text, Fire! Fire!, will help take us back in time and consider what it might have been like to have been in London at this time in the past.  We will also be designing, making and then burning 17th century style (cardboard) houses, in order to get a feel for what this event might have been like. In maths, we will be focusing on multiplication and division skills, specifically looking at the 2, 5 and 10 times table.
