Year 2 Project

Spring One 


  What's Great About Rochdale?


Within this project we will - 



This half term we will be studying instructions. The text we will focus on is ‘The Disgusting Sandwich’ by Gareth Edwards. We will begin by testing instructions and identifying features before exploring the text in the detail. We will finish by writing our own set of instructions.



This half term we will be focusing on money and multiplication and division.  Children will identify the amount different coins and notes are worth.  Children will recognise that multiplication is repeated addition. They learn the two, fives and ten times table and the associated division facts.



We will be exploring our home town of Rochdale. We will research the history of the town looking at how the cotton industry had an impact on the growth and development of the town. 



In Science this half term will focus on living things and their habitats. We will explore living things and how their habitats are suited to them as well as how they obtain their food. We will also explore and compare the differences between living and non-living things.



This term we will be linking the Geography to our History work by studying Rochdale. We will then be comparing our home town to a contrasting locality in Zambia.



Our focus question in RE will be ‘What can we learn from scared texts?’ Children will  talk about books that are special to us and say why this is. We will also discuss how holy books should be treated.

Children have PE twice a week.

Please ensure that your child has a sensible PE kit, including trainers in school for PE lessons on Mondays and Tuesday. This PE kit can them be kept in school for the remainder of the half term so that children have it in school when they need it. 




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.
