Children will be increasing their familiarity with a wide range of genres of writing. They will be preparing poems and play scripts to read aloud and perform. They will be thinking about inference and making predictions about what is going to happen in a story.This year they will need to build on their handwriting work in Year 2, becoming more confident with combining letters. They will be thinking carefully about the setting, characters and plot in their stories and how to structure a text, remembering to use plenty of good description. They will need to use connecting words such as when, before, after, while, so and because. They will start to use speech marks when writing dialogue this year.
They will start adding and subtracting with three-digit numbers by using column They will learn their 3, 4 and 8 times tables then moving onto multiplying a two-digit number by a one-digit number. Children will learn how to find fractions of quantities and about equivalent fractions. They will learn about perimeter and also how to tell the time on a 12 hour system and 24 hour system clock. They will start to learn about right angles, horizontal , perpendicular and parallel lines.
Children will learn about plants in more details: explain observations that plants need water and light to grow, know that water is taken in through the roots and transported through the stem and know that plant growth is affected by temperature. They will also learn about humans and animals in more details: know life processes common to humans and animals include nutrition (water and food), movement, growth and reproduction, describe differences between living and non-living things using knowledge of life processes and explore and research exercise and the adequate, varied diet needed to keep healthy. They will also explore human senses and the ways we use them to learn about our world as well as sort living things into groups, using simple features and describe rationale for groupings.
Furthermore, children will learn about material properties in more details: know that every material has specific properties. For examples, hard, soft, shiny. They will be able to sort materials according to their properties. They will explore how some materials are magnetic but many are not and discuss why materials are chosen for specific purposes based on their properties.
Moreover, children will learn about forces and motion in more details: know that pushes and pulls are examples of forces and that they can be measured with forcemeters, explore how forces can make objects start or stop moving and how forces can change the shape of objects. They will also explore how forces, including friction, can make objects move faster or slower or change direction.
Children will carry on building their phonics work in Year 1 until they are able to read words automatically, without having to sound out. They will continue to read a range of different stories and introduced to non-fiction books. They will be able to apply the rules on spelling based on what they have learnt.

They will be taught to use capital letters, full stops, exclamation marks and question marks correctly.
Children in Year 2 will learn to add and subtract with two-digit and one-digit numbers. They will learn multiplication and division fact for the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Children will need to find 1/3, 1/4 1/2 and 3/4 of a shape or a quantity of objects. They will learn to name and describe the properties of common 2D and 3D shapes. Year 2 children carry out activities where they interpret and construct block graphs, tally charts, pictograms and tables.
Children will learn about living things in their environment. They will identify similarities and differences between local environments and know about some of the ways in which these affect the animals and plants that are found there. They will also observe and talk about their observation of the weather, recording reports of weather data.
Moreover, children will learn about material properties and changes. They will learn to recognize some types of rocks and the uses of different rocks. They will know how the shapes of some materials can be changed by squashing, bending, twisting and stretching. They will also describe the way some everyday materials change when they are heated or cooled. They will recognize that some materials can dissolve in water.
Furthermore, children will learn about light and dark where they will identify different light sources including the sun. They will also be able to identify shadow and know that darkness is due to absence of light. They will also learn about electricity which will require them to recognize the components of simple circuits involving cells (batteries). They need to know how a switch can be used to break a circuit as well. In addition, the children will learn about the earth and beyond. They will explore how the sun appears to move during the day and how shadows change. They will also make a model how the spin of the Earth leads to day and night, for examples, with different sized balls and a torch.
