Year 2 Autumn Term Overview


Welcome to a new year full of learning and exciting activities.

We have all settled into our new year 2 classroom and are learning new rules and expectations. In PSHCE we are working on a unit called “Our Happy School” and we want this to be the case for everyone. Our core Christian value for year 2 is Respect.


Here in year 2 we have a very busy term ahead of us. We’d like to let you know about our main topics so you can support us and discuss your child’s learning at home.


We have a super new topic called “Investigating interesting India”. We will be finding out all about India, it’s people, customs and beliefs. We will do lots of cross curricular work and hopefully enjoy researching all about India. 

In English, we will be focusing on sentence writing, spelling key words and handwriting. Reading is still vitally important in year 2. Please hear your child read as often as possible and sign the diary so we can change books.

In Maths we are adding and subtracting, ordering and writing number words.

Science this half term is “Use of materials”. Children have already sorted everyday materials and investigated their properties. We will also be taking part in so fun, hands on Science experiments.

In Geography we will be learning about the 7 continents and 5 oceans and directional skills.


We will also be learning about special books and the Bible in R.E.


Outdoor P.E. is every Monday. Please remember trainers/pumps are needed every week.


Thank you for your continued support

Mrs Seigne and Miss Stennett
