In maths we are following a scheme called Power Maths. Every child has their own practice book in which they complete tasks each lesson. During lessons, children are encouraged to discover and then share their thoughts with their peers about how they would solve a mathematical problem and they are encouraged to reason and explain their mathematical thinking. In maths, we will be using lots of practical resources to help the children understand concepts and to help them master the different areas of the maths curriculum.
This year we will be looking in depth at the following texts:
Aliens Love Underpants
The Day the Crayons Quit
George and the Dragon
The Dragon Machine
Alice in Wonderland
A variety of traditional tales
Birds and other animals
Please find below the topics we will be covering for the rest of the curriculum:
The Great Fire of London
The Gunpowder Plot
Jesus the 'saviour'

We go to the Holly Lodge Centre in Richmond Park to support our learning about pond habitats.
Other key events

The highlight of our year is the Year 2 sleepover where we all camp out at school for the night!
