The Advent Term- What will we learn?

Welcome to Year 2’s class page. I am so excited to be teaching in Year 2 again this year. Please read below for an overview of what the children will be learning about for the Autumn Term.

The Place Where I Live

In English we are focusing on stories with familiar settings where the children will write an innovated story based on a traditional tale. Following this, our next topic focuses on non-chronological reports linked to Loughborough. Our final topic is based around poems on a theme where the children will construct their own innovated poem.

In Maths our learning begins focusing on Place Value, followed by Addition and Subtraction, and then moving onto Money.

In RE, we begin exploring the Beginnings that each day offers, focusing on the Creation Story from Genesis. We will then focus on Islam, followed by the Shabbat in Judaism. Our final topic for the Advent term will be focusing on Signs and Symbols in Baptism.

Our Science topic focuses on exploring the local environment plants using nature diaries. Afterwards, we will be focusing on humans.

In Geography we are focusing on learning about the place where children live (and play) – Loughborough.

Our History learning will focus on significant places in Loughborough (including schools and playgrounds).

In Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) we will be learning about Emotional Wellbeing.

In Art & Design, children will have opportunities to create:

  • Observational drawings
  • Explore rubbing/texture
  • Shading
  • Printing

In PE, the children will start with Creative Games followed by Gymnastics and Dance.

You will see below our timetable for this next half term along with the knowledge organisers for our topic: The Place Where I Live.

Look out for up-to-date messages and homework on Class Dojo.

Many thanks,

Miss Buttarazzi and Mrs Adamek
