Year 2 - Cherry Class

Welcome to Year 2 Cherry Class

Autumn Term 2020

Fire! Fire!


In Maths, we will focus on solving problems, and the four operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division along with 2d and 3d shape, lines of symmetry, fractions, weight, length and interpreting data.


In English, we will be reading a variety of books, with a focus on traditional and fairy tales. We will be using our imagination to write stories about our topic using nouns, adjectives and verbs. Our spelling lessons will be focused on spelling most common words and using them correctly in our writing.


In Science, we will investigate the properties and uses of everyday materials, as well as looking at the lives of important scientists and inventors.


In Geography, we will be using and creating maps. This will help us to locate London and the route of The Great Fire of London on a map.


In History, we will uncover what happened during The Great Fire of London.


In PSHE, we will be discussing the different kinds of relationships in our lives.


How can you help?

  • Read all kinds of books, both fiction and non-fiction.
  • Can you talk about the books? What is your favourite part? Why?
  • Write stories.
  • Read and write numbers in words as well as digits.
  • Tell the time – o’clock, half-past, quarter past and quarter to. How many minutes in an hour, half an hour? How many hours in a day?
  • Use money – which coins can you recognise?  How much do you have? Can you add some coins together? How much change will you get?
  • Say the days of the week in order. Can you start with a different day each time? Can you spell the days correctly?
  • Say the months of the year in order. How many months are there? Which is your favourite and why? Can you spell the months correctly?
