IPC - Time Travellers

Welcome back year 2!

This half term our topic is ‘Time Travellers’ which we have called ‘Fire Fire’. In this topic we will be learning all about the Great Fire of London and many of our lessons will be focused around this. We will be exploring the lives of significant individuals in the past who have contributed to national and international achievements, especially Samuel Pepys who was a key figure in the Great Fire of London. 



In English, our new text is ‘The Hodgeheg’ which focuses on the story of a hedgehog. We will be using this to develop our understanding of descriptive writing and broaden our vocabulary using a range of adjectives, similes and adverbs. We will also be looking at Samuel Pepys poetry and use this to develop our own poetry writing.



During maths this term, we will be expanding our knowledge of adding and subtracting with bigger numbers and begin to learn about fractions of shape and amounts. We will also be exploring money further and use this to help us solve a range of problems.

We are continuing with our topic plants for this term and we will learn all about the lifecycle of a plant and the parts of a plant.  We will be conducting long term observations by growing our own plants indoors, making predictions and recording our findings.  As usual, we will also be learning about a famous scientist who specialised in plants.



Please find below the homework menu for this half term.  Choose one task to do every week and return your completed activity, with your homework book on Thursday.  Your book will be marked and returned on Monday.

Reading Records should be in school every day whether your child has read or not, this is so that we can record any comments during daily guided reading sessions.  Your child will be choosing their own reading books in Year 2, changing the books themselves every morning.
