Stanhope Primary School


Spring 2


Our topic this half term is Animal Kingdoms.

Our big question is: “Would you see a meerkat at the North Pole?”

We will be:

  • discovering what living things have in common;
  • exploring the school grounds looking for things that are living, dead or never lived;
  • learning about habitats and how animals adapt to them;
  • what animals eat (herbivores, omnivores and carnivores);
  • food chains and
  • life cycles.

In maths we will be learning about shape, fractions, time and continuing to learn our times tables.

By the end of Year 2 the children should know X and ÷ facts for the 2X, 3X, 5X and 10X tables.

Finally, in English we will be writing non-chronological reports.

Key Worker Information Letters have been sent on ParentMail, however the system is very slow due to the volume of traffic. Do not panic if you have not received a letter yet! It will come over the weekend.
