Welcome to Year 2!
This half term we will be looking at ...
We will be learning about what life was like in London 350 years ago. We will use sources of information from the past to discover how the fire started and what was done to try to put it out. We will also learn about how things have changed so that something similar couldn't happen again.
We will be learning about collage and how different artists have been influenced by this technique.
We will look at pictures produced by Matisse, Kandinski and Picasso and be influenced by their work.
In SPaG work we will be learning more about suffixes and how they change the root word.

We will be building on our knowledge of place value and beginning to use this to solve mathematical problems.
Our times tables are improving and we will be working on rapid recall of the 2s, 5s and 10s as well as working towards 3s and 4s.
Children should be familiar with a 100 square and it can be a useful aid in adding numbers.
Below is a link to splat square 100 which can be used by children to add 10s to numbers either by counting on 10 or moving 1 square down on the 100 square.
Please find links below for other useful games for Year 2 children.
