Learning Objectives

What we will be learning in class this week:

 Week Commencing Monday 15th January 2018


To use the past tense correctly. 

To make inference on the basis of what is being said or done.



Year 2 are continuing looking at the suffix ‘ing’. For example: stopping, batting and jogging. If a verb ends in a short vowel sound (a, e, i, o or u) + a consonant, we have to double the consonant before adding -ing.  


To solve problems using all four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). 

To solve problems involving money.



To design our own toy.  

To generate, develop, model and communicate my ideas through talking, drawing, templates, mock-ups.

Primary National Curriculum 


Parent Planners

Each term, before the children embark on their learning in a new topic, we send home a Parent Topic Planner explaining for parents and carers the learning opportunities across the curriculum that each child will receive. Teachers select and suggest useful websites and places to visit which will enhance and prepare the child for the topic they are about to start. There are also useful dates and a bank of topic words that families may choose to talk through with their children.
