Year 2 2021 - 2022

Miss Garvey


This is our final half term of Year 2 and we’ve got lots of exciting learning coming up! The children’s theme is ‘Go Wild!’ where they are going to learn all about living things and their habitats. The key driver subject is Science and throughout the weeks we are going to explore 5 different enquiry questions. There are:


How would you group these things to show whether they are living, dead or never been alive?

What conditions will help me grow the healthiest plant?

What happens to my bean after I have planted it?

How do animals adapt to suit their environment?

Do animals need each other to survive?


In writing the children are going to begin by re-telling the narrative ‘The Journey Home’. They will re-plan the story and incorporate different animals of their choice. They will be encouraged to apply all of the taught SPAG rules into their narrative. In the second half of the half term, the children will write a science investigation relating to their plants learning in Science. They will record a prediction, how they set up the experiment, their findings and a conclusion. This will be accompanied with diagrams and photographs.  

In maths, pupils are going to re-cap and consolidate all of their learning from the year including finding fractions of numbers, finding intervals of time and interpreting data from pictograms and other statistical data.

In Geography the children are going to complete a local study. From their walk they will create a simple map of a small area of Knutsford. They will pair their map with a key and a set of compass instructions to describe the location of different landmarks in the town.

In R.E. children will explore this key question during the half term: How do sacred scriptures inform religious beliefs? The children will learn about different scriptures within 3 different religions and identify the key themes in each of them. They will also learn about how these scriptures are used within each religion whether in acts of public prayer or a celebration.

In DT the children are going to be creating puppets! They will plan out their design by choosing their favourite story character. They will then use different materials and stitching skills to join fabric and add embellishment to create their finished product.
