Welcome to Year 2 – Y2MD
The children in Y2MD have an exciting first term planned. They
will gain a breadth of knowledge by exploring the question
“What does it mean to achieve?” During this topic, they will
research, using a variety of sources, significant people who
have achieved amazing things throughout history. We will be
looking at e.g. Florence Nightingale, Neil Armstrong…. We will
then begin to explore different professions and begin to reflect
on our own current achievements and what we would like to
achieve in the future in the future.
Find out more by looking at our learning journey.
We have lots of fun events and visits planned for this year
ahead. Our outcome this term will be to film news reports
surrounding Neil Armstrong and present this to parents. This
term we will be having a visitor from a local charity who will talk
to the children about creating a fund raising event for our local
childrens hospital. Our Year 2 team have many great ideas to
suggest and develop with our pupils.
In maths this term, we will be focusing on the key skills in place
value, addition and subtraction, measurements (money) and
Multiplication and division. The children are enjoying working in
their maths groups and are given many opportunities to use a
variety of apparatus to help them understand our maths. We
follow the White Rose maths scheme which is available for
viewing online. Y2MD are now becoming amazing
mathematicians and are developing a growth mind-set in their
In literacy, we are working on our consolidating key facts
around our influential figures in order to create new reports,
comic strips, blogs and many other pieces of work that we will
be keen to showcase.
In DT we will be making a moon buggy, we will look at using a
range of materials and discuss our reasoning behind each
design decision. We will create this piece using junk material. In
Y2MD we love to do lots of art so we will be looking at drawing
and painting portraits and creating collages. All our pieces will
link to our topic.
