Year 2

Welcome to the Autumn Term 2021!


Year 2 have had an exciting start to the term as we explored the story of ‘Traction Man’ by Mini Grey. This really captured the children’s imagination which inspired them to write descriptions of Traction Man as well as planning ideas and writing about a new adventure for Traction Man. Some of the illustrations in the book followed the Pop Art style and led to us finding out more about the work of Roy Lichtenstein. His use of primary colours, bold outlines and printing techniques gave us the idea of representing his methods through our own artwork based on the theme of Traction Man. We even added a moving mechanism to our pictures! In Maths, we have been learning number bonds, the place value of 2 digit numbers and how to use different methods to solve addition and subtraction problems. Our book for this half term is called ‘Winter Sleep’ by Sean Taylor and Alex Morss and explores the forest through the changing seasons. We will also learn about the animals that live in the forest, their habitat and what they like to eat. We have written questions about hibernation, explored vocabulary and during the next few weeks we will begin to plan and gather information for writing a non-chronological report.
