Year 2 Spellings Summer 1

Year 2 curriculum letter summer term

Here's your spelling lists for Spring 2. You can find them in your WOW book too. Practise the spellings in your WOW book by using Look/Cover/Write/Check method three times per week on different days. Also, write sentences including each of the words.

We had a fantastic trip the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich this week. Thank you so much to all the volunteer parents who came with us :)

Welcome to Spring term! Lots of exciting work about Polar Lands is awaiting us.

 This term we will continue using Power of Reading to encourage the love of reading and writing in our children

We will be working on a book called 'Lila and the Secret of Rain' by David Conway and Jude Daly.

Lila’s Kenyan village is suffering a terrible drought. When Lila hears her mother say that ‘without water there can be no life’ she sets out on a quest to uncover the secret of rain and so save the village. This modern folk tale reminds us of how necessary and precious water is for survival and provides opportunity to explore together some larger themes of conservation. 

Our new topic is Kenya/Africa.

We will be learning about the geography of Kenya through focusing on the main human and physical features of the country. We will learn about the key geographical features of the country including Kenyan wildlife, landscapes and culture. We will also learn about the similarities and
differences between Kenya and the UK along with continuing to develop their geographical skills through a variety of fun and interactive activities.

In Science will learn about a variety of habitats and the plants and animals that live there. We will look at how to tell the difference between things that are living, dead and things that have never been alive, and apply this in a range of contexts. We will observations of a local habitat and the creatures that live there, investigating conditions in local microhabitats and how they affect the minibeasts found within them. We will research a range of global habitats and how the living things that live there are suited to their environments.

Thank you to all those children who worked hard over the summer on their summer homework projects. They have learned so much about endangered animals all over the world. Look at their fantastic work!
