Year 2 Project

Spring A


What's Great About Rochdale?

Within this project we will - 


In English

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.


In Maths

Before the Christmas break we started money. We will continue with this before moving on to multiplication and division.


In History

We will be exploring our home town of Rochdale. We will research the history of the town as well as its well-known buildings.


In Science

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.


In Geography

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 makes places sacred?’ Children will explore what makes some places sacred and why. They will also talk about the importance of respecting other people’s precious or sacred belongings.


In Art and DT

In Art, we will be creating African masks to link with our work on contrasting locality Zambia. In DT we will create animal puppets which links nicely to our work in Science.

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.

The children will need to come to school on Tuesdays dressed in their PE kits. 




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.
