Fly me to the Moon

This half term in Year 2 our topic is Fly me to the Moon.


The children will enjoy a history based topic learning about the first moon landing as well as space.


In English we will begin by reading ‘Bob Man on the Moon’ and will learn all about his job as moon keeper. The children will write questions to Bob, describe the aliens Bob finds and then plan a new story featuring one of the aliens! We will also look at instructional writing to develop our understanding of imperative verbs and adverbs.


In Maths we will be introducing fractions to the children. We will consider fractions of shape and number. The children will be focusing on half, quarter and third. We will also learn about measuring length and height.


In Science our learning will be focused around plants. We will observe and describe how seeds and bulbs grow into mature plants. We will also find out and describe how plants need water, light and a suitable temperature to grow and stay healthy. The children will enjoy growing plants and spending time observing the plants in the school environment


Our PE lessons will focus on developing skills within athletics and target games. The children will enjoy both indoor and outdoor PE lessons.


During our computing lessons we will be learning about making music using music software called 2sequence. The children will develop their skills and knowledge around harmony and music scales.


Within our design technology lessons, we will focus on moving vehicles and design and make a space buggy.


We continue to assess the children’s reading, writing and number skills, highlighting areas for development through our next step marking and supporting the children to develop these areas.


Please continue to hear your child read and note this in their reading diary.


Also look at our page on Class Dojo for links to areas of the curriculum and examples of work that the children have completed.
