Year 2 - Pandas & Rhinos

Welcome To

Panda and Rhino


Term 2:


This term, we will be learning about Victorian life and are kicking off the term with a Victorian themed day on Thursday 4th November.


In English, we will be focussing on ‘The Magic Paintbrush’ by Julia Donaldson. We will explore, retell and write an alternative version focussing on the use of adverbs and descriptive story language. We will use these skills to retell and adapt the story Cat, Bramble and Heron. Later this term we will be focussing on different types of poetry based around Pie Corbett’s ‘If I had wings.’


In Maths, we will be learning about:


Money- Recognising coins and notes, making totals using different combinations of coins, totalling amounts and giving change.


Multiplication/Division- Reviewing what we have learnt about multiplication/division including methods used (array or continuous addition/subtraction on an empty number-line). 


In Topic, we will be exploring the History of Victorians:

In History we will create our own fact sheets about Victorians using concept mapping on the computer. This will be based around our learning during Victorian Day.


We will be using a range of art and DT techniques to design and create a Victorian style moving toy.


We will be looking at photography in the past and will use ipad software to explore different photographic techniques, which allow us to edit our own photographs using different effects.  


In Science we will be looking at the importance of staying healthy and comparing our diet to what people ate in Victorian times.
