Our topic this term is…

Are all explorers brave?

This term we will be looking at a number of different explorers including Christopher Columbus, Edmund Hillary, Helen Sharman and Neil Armstrong. We will spend time learning about their geographical journeys and understand the impact that they had on the world.

In English we will be focussing on a book by Simon Bartram called, ‘Man on the Moon. A day in the life of Bob.’

In Maths we will be continuing to learn about time and money, before then moving on to multiplication and division. 

Please find below an overview of our curriculum for this term.

Topic web Spring 1- Year two


In maths we will continue to practise our Learn Its. These sheets are photocopied and will be sent home so that you can work on them with your child. In addition to this, the children will be set Maths Family Toolkit homework. This will be set every two weeks on a Wednesday and it will be due in two weeks later to allow children time to complete it.

Every week we send home five personalised spellings for your child to learn, please spend time helping your child to learn these – the car can be a great place to do this!

The most important thing you can do at home with your child is to share books together. Please hear your child read at least five times each week and continue to read more challenging stories to your children. Reading at home doesn’t just have to be reading from the coloured banded books, it could be anything appropriate that your child is interested in. Developing a love of reading is key.


Please remember that every child needs to bring a filled water bottle to school each day. As the weather gets cooler and wetter, please ensure that your child has a coat in school.

Wellies and PE kits should be in school every day, however for term three, PE lessons will be on Wednesday and Friday.  Please ensure that all items of property that come to school are clearly labelled with your child’s name as we already have a large amount of unnamed school jumpers.

Please do let us know if you have any questions at all. After school is always better than the morning for a chat, as the mornings are very busy.
