Curwen Primary School


Summer 1

Y2 Summer term





We had a fantastic start to our Summer term with the arrival of our ducklings! This has supported our topic on ‘Animals including humans’ where we had the chance to talk about what they need to survive. We all had a chance to visit the library and observe the ducklings in the paddling pool. We used our communication skills to ask questions and listen to the information. Year 2, continued to develop their reading skills and used a piece of text about ducklings to read and answer some comprehension questions.


In Maths, we had the opportunity to learn about time and used concrete resources such as clocks to support our understanding. We talked about our day and looked at our class visual timetables. We spoke about what we do at certain points in the day. We learnt about how many minutes there are in an hour, how many hours in a day and recapped the days of the weeks and months. We used our resilience to practise telling the time and answering reasoning questions.  



In Literacy, we used ‘colourful stories’ to listen and retell the story of ‘The Boy Who Cried Wolf’. Once we were confident using our communication skills to talk about the different parts of the story, we then drew our own story boards. This helped us write a narrative of the story, getting the events in the correct order. We have been working hard to ensure we use a range of exciting vocabulary, expanded noun phrases and the correct punctuation. Year 2 have also worked extremely hard on their handwriting, ensuring we are forming our letters accurately and some have started to join their writing.
