Your superhero needs to move around, so your job is to design and make a car for them.

1. Draw a picture of your superhero car and label all the important parts: wheels, window, body, lights, steering wheel. Label all the special features and super powers the car has.
2. Make the car. You can use anything- lego, junk modelling, an old plastic bottle, plasticine, cardboard. 

There are some videos below on how to make self -propelled cars, using simple things like rubber bands, bottle tops, plastic bottles, buttons and lolly sticks.

Most importantly, upload your photos so we can see your amazing cars!!!

Every day, your child should be:

 

  • Reading (or read to) for at least 30 minutes.

 

  • Completing a writing activity for 30 minutes, e.g. writing a story, a diary, a newspaper report, a book review, a letter or a fact report. This could be about anything you find interesting: plants, space, the Romans, the Egyptians, science, countries of the world, food, computers, sport… the possibilities are endless!

 

  • Be practicing number bonds and times tables for 20 minutes.(They can do this using TT Rockstars and Numbots. Log in details have been sent via email). 

 

  • Being active for one hour. Click below for some ideas on staying active:

Welcome to Year 2!

Below is the newsletter for Autumn 1 term, which includes PE days, information on spelling and homework and everything that we will be covering this term.

Spellings to learn at home 

Here is the weekly list of spellings for Year 2 for Autumn 1. The children should learn the 10 words on the list, which will be tested on Fridays in class. 

There are also all of the phonics sounds that we are recapping in class: these are just for your information so you can look out for these sounds when we read every day with your child. 

Year 2 curriculum 

We have a brilliant time in Year 2, have a look below and find out some of what we do:

 

Autumn Term
In our topic 'Making a Difference', we look at the life of Mary Seacole and Florence Nightingale and how they made a difference to other people's lives.  In the second half term we learn about the Great Fire of London and the Gunpowder Plot through our topic 'London's Burning'.  We also perform in the Lower School Christmas Play.

 

Spring Term
Our first topic is 'Super Heroes'  where we love learning about, and pretending to be, our favourite Super Hero!  In the second half of this term our topic is 'Around the World in 80 Days'. Barnaby bear will be on his travels. He may visit places like the Mexico City, St Lucia and London. We will be finding out about these places and sharing with each other the places our families are from and the countries we have visited.

 

Summer Term
Our topic is 'Traditional Stories with a Twist'. We develop our writing skills by writing our own version of a Traditional tale with a twist e.g. The Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig. In DT we will make puppets and perform our stories. During this half term, we will also be completing the end of Key Stage One assessments. 

Our final topic of Year Two is 'Mini beasts' where we explore living things and their habitats.  If the weather is good, we can pay a visit to our local allotment to find some of these mini beasts!

If you are looking for some other ways to support your child's learning at home, the following web sites have a range of activities and worksheets covering all areas of the curriculum.
