In English, we will writing a sequel for the Traction Man story involving an evil villain, explanation texts about how to be a superhero and a persuasive advert based around a superhero gadget. Throughout our writing, we will be using adjectives with - est and –er suffixes (e.g. smartest, meanest), conjunctions (because, or , so that ) and using contractions (e.g. can’t, wouldn’t). We know the children in Year 2 will really enjoy writing about how to be a superhero and we’re sure they will tell you all about it at home.
In Mathematics, we will be developing our multiplication and division fact knowledge, as well as, developing different strategies for solving multiplication and division problems and applying these to investigations. In addition to this, we will be learning to use money in a variety of practical and problem solving contexts .
In topic we will also be learning about real life heroes and debating which ones have made the biggest impact on our lives and why. We will be learning about Mary Seacole and Florence Nightingale. We look forward to sharing our learning with you through our class assemblies.
