Unit 1: Numbers to 100



In our first unit of the year, we will make sure that we know how to represent numbers in a variety of ways focusing on the place value of digits. We always use lots of equipment such as bead strings, place value charts, number lines, Base 10 and hundred squares to help us with our learning.


Unit 2: Addition and Subtraction



Once we understand the value of numbers, we will begin to add and subtract numbers up to 100 using both one and two-digit numbers. Again, we will use our equipment to support the written calculations that we do.



Old Testament (Stories & Prayers):

We begin the term by looking at stories within the Old Testament to understand the relationship God has with others. We will read many stories within the Bible such as Noah's Ark and stories of Jonah and Abraham and understand that God is forgiving.



Sharing in the Life of Jesus:







Details coming soon.




The UK & Contrasting Coasts:

Details coming soon.






The Great Fire of London:

Throughout this term, we will learn who the Stuarts were and explore some of the events that took place throughout their fascinating time period. You will discover more about the infamous Gunpowder Plot and how Guy Fawkes was involved. Comparisons of life then to life today will also be explored and the significant changes that London underwent following the Great Fire of London.





Vincent Van Gogh:

Using the methods of drawing, painting, and collaging, we will leas up to producing a self-portrait in a pointillism style which is inspired by Vincent Van Gogh. The Dutch artist created many inspirational pieces of art such as, 'Starry Night', 'Sunflowers' and 'Café Terrace at Night' all of which you will learn about. You will learn how to draw lines and tones to represent objects, build texture and pattern and be able to evaluate our own artwork.

The Maasai:

Throughout this term, the whole school focus for ‘Our Vehicle’ is developing cultural awareness. In Year 2, we learn about the Maasai people. This will involve exploring where they live, their history, what they eat, how they communicate and socialise and, ultimately, considering what a day in the life of a Maasai might look like. We look forward to sharing our learning with you!
