Year 2 Curriculum Project

Year 2 Project - Wriggle and Crawl

Grab your coat and pooter - we're going out and about on a minibeast hunt. Sweep your nets in ponds and lift up logs to see who's home. Then set up a minibeast laboratory and observe their every move. Add notes and labels and ask research questions, just like a real entomologist. Learn about bees and worms and butterflies too. Can you make a food chain to show who eats who? Carry out investigations to find out more, like how far a snail travels in a day and how a spider catches its prey. Then animate to show how your favourite bug transforms from one form to another, perhaps a caterpillar to a butterfly or a maggot to a fly. On your belly, legs at the ready, it's time to wriggle and crawl.

Additional Information

In Term 2 the children need to bring their reading book/record in every day. Once they have read a book they will complete a comprehension quiz about it and then choose a new book. Please ensure children are reading for at least 10 minutes every day at home. 

There will not be any spellings set over the half term. 

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

This week's homework is;

  • Read for at least 10 minutes everyday. If the book is relatively short, it would be useful to read it a few times in preparation for the quiz they will take about the book.
  • Aim to complete 3 progressions on Maths Whizz every week. 
  • Spellings have been sent home. Spelling tests will be on Thursdays. Children can practice their spellings on Spelling Shed using the log-in in their reading record.
