Year 2 - Maple Class

Welcome to Year 2 Maple Class


                                                                    Summer Term 1 



                  Our Topic this term is Walk on the Wild Side!



In maths we will start off the half term with fractions by recognising halves, quarters and thirds. We will also be working out equivalent fractions such one half = two quarters. We will move on to telling the time in terms of o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. We will also work on durations of time.  After this, we will be solving problems with position and describing movements and turns, such as quarter, half and whole turns.




In english, we will be reading Meerkat Mail, where we will be writing postcards, learning about types of meerkat and writing our own stories with recurring language. We will then move on to poetry and shape poems.




In science, we will be focusing on plants. We will be observing plants, seeds and bulbs, finding out what plants need and how they grow as well as looking at the life cycles of plants and investigating which plants we eat.




In history, we will be learning about the lives of nurses in the past, such as Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole.




In PSHE, our focus will be on keeping safe and finding out how to ask for help in an emergency.
