Woodpecker & Skylark

Developing skills in reading, writing & maths

In Year Two, children continue to follow the National Curriculum. The children continue to develop their reading, writing and mathematical skills as well as their knowledge and understanding of a range of other subjects. Learning is organised through a thematic approach, giving the children the opportunity to understand the links between subjects and use and apply the skills they are learning. 


In Mathematics we are continuing to learn strategies in addition and subtraction, to understand and use units of weight and time, to collect, represent and interpret data and are making barcharts and pictograms.  We are learning about multiplication and division.


In English we are learning to use interesting words and adjectives to improve our writing. We are also using conjunctions and paragraphs to make our writing easier to read. We are looking at a range of poetry, fiction and non-fiction related to our topic work.
