Year 2 Project

Autumn A


What's marvellous about me? 

Within this project we will - 


English -


The genre we will focus on this half term are narrative and poetry and the focus text is 'The Pirates Next Door' by Jonny Duddle

We will start by looking at the characters in the story and then we will use a range of methods to retell the story. We will then create our own pirate story based on the book.

We will also be looking at poems about dragons and exploring some of the features of poetry before we write our own poems. 


Maths -

In maths we will be looking at the place value of numbers to 100. We will partition the numbers and look at the value of the digits that the number is made up from. We will be representing them in different ways and comparing them looking at the greater than, less than and equal to signs. We will begin to look at addition and subtraction and explore the fact families of number bonds. 


Science -

This half term we are looking at animals including humans. We will be looking at what humans need to survive and we will also be exploring the life cycle of humans and a range of animals. We will look at what humans need to stay healthy and what a healthy meal looks like.


Geography -  

In Geography we will be naming the continents and oceans in the world. We will then look at the countries that the United Kingdom is made up from and naming and locating the capital cities. The children will be developing their vocabulary by describing some of the physical geographical features of a location. 


D & T -

In D and T the children are going to be looking at where food comes from and how it is produced. They will look at the part fruits and vegetables play in the diet and design, prepare and make their own vegetable kebabs. We are hoping to be able to cook them over the fire in our forest schools area. 

RE -

In RE our question is Who is a Christian and what do they believe? The children will explore Christianity and look at what Christians believe and they will also explore some key stories from Christianity. 


In PSHE we will be exploring the characteristics of a good friend. the children will look at the importance of sharing and they will also explore what kindness looks like. Children will explore what a community is and hw communities work together. 




In computing the children will explore what a computer is and how computers work. They will look at the parts of a computer and think about how computers are used in a range of everyday objects.

Children have PE twice a week.

Please ensure that your child has a sensible PE kit, including trainers in school.




Homework is set on a weekly basis for Spellings and Number facts. The spellings and timestables are sent out via the apps (Spelling Shed and Timestables Rockstars) and can be accessed at home.  All children have log ins for both sites.  These need to be completed at least daily, to ensure the children get the best opportunities to succeed. 




Reading is a life skill, so it is so important that your child reads on a daily basis. Please make sure that your child reads every single night. Encourage them to read a variety of different books. Record how they read in their reading records.

*Ask your child questions about the book e.g.

-Can you predict what will happen next?

-Can you describe how the character might be feeling?

-Can you summarise the key points in the story?

-Is this fiction or non-fiction? How do you know?

 Reading books must be in school every day so that their progress can be monitored and their name moved up the class reading tree, the children will also need to read during the day. 



-Encourage your child to practice times tables at home.

-Ask your child mental maths questions as often as possible e.g. when you are sat in the car/ walking to school/ sat together at home. You could ask them additions, subtractions, doubles etc.

-Ask any siblings if they can remember a maths game that they played in school and encourage them to play together to make maths fun.
