This page is dedicated to all the exciting things we will be doing in class this year.

Dear Magpies,

Term 4

I hope you’re all doing well despite the strange circumstances at the moment. It’s crazy to think that we’re already halfway through the year – I’m glad that spring is on the way!

Here is some information about what Year 2 will be learning about this half term.

This half term our topic is ‘Can a camel live in the North Pole?’, and will centre around ‘The Hodgeheg’ by Dick King-Smith. In English we shall be writing setting descriptions of different habitats, and creating our own animal stories. In Topic we’ll be honing our map skills; looking at key physical and human landmarks in order to better understand animal habitats. We shall also be planning an animal travel route around our school grounds.


In Maths this term we shall initially look at 3D shapes, before recapping our previous learning on fractions. We’ll then move onto measuring length, height, capacity and temperature .


Our Science unit this term is ‘Living Things and their Habitats’, which is directly linked to our main topic.


This term our R.E. unit is on Salvation, asking the key question, ‘Why does Easter Matter to Christians?’ We’ll be exploring the Easter Story and the Holy Week events in detail.

Miss Chatters and Mrs Johnson
