Year 2


Our English curriculum is usually taught through in cross curricular Topics. Children will learn a story by heart and use this as a basis to invent their own new version ( based on the schools 'Talk for Writing' strategies) 

Objectives : 

Over the next three weeks children will revisit and develop their writing:- 

To write in full sentences that are correctly punctutaed. 

To identify adjectives, verbs, nouns and punctuation within a simple sentence. 

To learn to sue noun phrases consistently when writing  ( a red ball , the small dog, his brown bag).

To rehearse the sentence that they wish to write before they write it down.

To spell words correctly  - with the support of spelling logs and word banks.

To write narratives based on familiar settings ( home, park, garden).


To form all lower case letters correctly.

To write neatly on the line.

To write letters of the correct size in relation to each other and the lines. 


Over this term children will further develop:

Counting forwards and backwards to 100  - with a particular focus on crossing 10's barriers  ( especially backwards e.g. counting from 63 - 57 , from 84 to 76).

Understanding of the value of each digit in a 2-digit number  e.g. 23 has 2 tens and 3 ones.

Understanding of the value of numbers  - e.g. by ordering a set of 2 digit numbers and placing them in the correct position on an empty number line . e.g. 34     17    13   63   25    ( 0______________100 )

Recall addition and subtraction number facts and bonds to 20 e.g. 2 + 3 = 5,  8 - 3 = 5 , 4 + 6 = 10 , 10 - 2 = 8 , 7 + 8 = 15 , 17 - 9 = 6 

Add and subtract a 1- digit number to and from any 2- digit number (using equipment for support if needed)

Form all digits correctly.
