Autumn Term



Year 2 are learning all about London this half term and they have been reading a story called Katie in London by James Mayhew. This is an excellent book which introduces the children to some of the famous landmarks in our city. In the story, Katie visits Trafalgar Square with her Granny and accidentally awakens one of the four lions that sit under Nelson’s Column. The lion takes Katie on a sight-seeing adventure across London. They visit many places including The Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge and The London Eye. Year 2 have been enjoying writing their own versions of the story and have painted their own lions too.

Later this half term we will be learning about The Great Fire of London and we will write our own diary entries like Samuel Pepys.


We have all been working very hard in maths to develop our understanding of place value. We have worked with our partners to find different ways to make a range of numbers. 


Year 2 are trying very hard to learn our 2, 5 and 10 times tables.
