Year 2 - Cherry Class

Welcome to Year 2 Cherry Class






Our Topic this term is Walk on the Wild Side!


In Maths, we will recap the four operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will also be measuring weight, length, height and capacity.


In English, we will start the half term off by reading myths and animal tales set in Africa. We will learn how to write instructions and explanations about a variety of subjects. We will also write a recount of our trip to Whipsnade Zoo


In Science our topic for this half term will be about animals including humans where we will be learning about animal babies, including how they grow and change. We will also learn how to keep ourselves healthy with our diet, exercise and hygiene.


In PSHE, our focus will be on physical health and mental wellbeing. This will include learning about why sleep is important and how to keep our teeth healthy. We will also link with science on growing and changing.


In Geography, we will be setting off on a sensational safari to learn all about Kenya, African animals and the marvelous Massai.
