Welcome to Year 2 Skylarks!
In our classroom we share our smiles, respect each other and always try our best.
Year 2 Term 1 - Raise the drawbridge!
See the castle ahead? Get ready to invade its mighty walls! Shoot a projectile with an archer’s aim! Head across the drawbridge, over the moat and up to the top of the tower… Then meet the lord and lady in the Great Hall of the keep! And finally…meet knights and unconventional princesses who rescue princes and fight dragons! Maps and photographs will help us learn about our local area and also show us where we could still find a castle in our home county of Lincolnshire. This topic will develop the children’s understanding of castles through the ages, different features of medieval castles and the people who lived and worked in the castles. Would you have wanted to be a gong farmer?
English – We’ll learn the stories of The Egg, The Paper Bag Princess and The Boy Who Grew Dragons. We will write poetry about dragons, recounts of our visit to Lincoln Castle and write alternative endings to well-known stories.
Maths – Children will start the term by reading, writing and ordering numbers and partitioning 2 digit numbers. They will be developing their addition and subtraction skills and understanding the difference between the 2 operations, as well as learning about inverse operations. The children will be practising their times tables, counting in 2s, 5s and 10s
