For the final half-term of Year 2, we shall be applying our knowledge of maths in all areas to problem-solving activities and challenges. The children will also be collecting data and answering questions about it.
It is REALLY important for children to practice their 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables and learn them off -by-heart, including the division facts.
During this half term the children will learn to identify and name a range of animals which are carnivores, herbivores or omnivores. They will then sort and classify the animals according to their different features and habitats.

In our R.E unit the children will be exploring Bible stories that focus on friendship.
A reminder that a voluntary contribution of £1.00 per week, for school fund would be really appreciated. (£7 this half term) This can be paid via parent pay.
We are looking forward to a busy and exciting term ahead.
