Autumn 1

Our topic is ‘The Great Fire of London’ and children will be introduced to this topic through a story about a young boy named Toby. We will study the cause of the fire, comparisons of life in Stuart times with today and use a range of resources to understand the past. The topic will be used as a writing stimulus and writing will include pupils’ increasing knowledge of grammar and punctuation. Neat handwriting and presentation will also be encouraged. Art and music will be linked to this topic. Our science topic ‘Living things and their Habitats’ will focus on pupils understanding that adaptation is important for animals to survive in a range of different environments. In mathematics we will continue to consolidate pupils’ knowledge of place value and addition and subtraction. P.E. lessons on a Monday and Wednesday will focus on multi-skills.Pupils are being introduced to ICT and will learn basic computing skills. Enjoyment from and an appreciation of books will continue to be fostered in Year 2. Children will listen to class stories from a range of children’s authors, and continue to read books from the home/school reading scheme. Children will be encouraged to change their books regularly.
