IPC - Brainwave

Welcome back year 2!

To kick-start the year, we have introduced a new topic called ‘Brainwave’. We will be looking at how we learn, what we can do to help us learn and our own preferred learning styles. We will look at the brain and explore the importance of looking after it.

IPC - People from the Past

Our new topic is ‘People from the Past and this half term we will be exploring the lives of significant people from the past. We will be finding out how to ask and answer questions from the past and discover what life was like then. We are looking forward to learning about how people have impacted the world that we live in today!


IPC - People from the Past - Entry Point

For our IPC unit 'People of the Past' we dressed up as famous and influential people from the past and played a game of 'guess who'. We then discussed some other famous figures and completed a scavenger hunt to find them in the playground! Take a look at some of the pictures below.

In English this term we will be focusing on the book ‘Lila and the Secret of Rain’ by David Conway. We will be using the book to inspire our own writing which will include poetry, diary entries and newspaper reports! We will be using lots of description in our writing!



In maths we will be looking at measurement. We will be exploring how to measure using millilitres, litres, kilograms and grams and use our understanding of the four operations to solve problems. We are also going to explore time and how we can tell it to the hour, half past, quarter past and quarter to.



Our Science topic will be focusing on what we have learnt throughout Year 2. We will be revisiting each topic to consolidate our learning and explore any other questions that we have.   



Please find below the homework menu for this half term.  Homework is set Monday and is due in on Thursday every week.
