Term 2 A Royal Rumble Elizabeth I V Elizabeth II

Term 2



TOPIC TITLE:  A Royal Rumble Elizabeth I v Elizabeth II



Year 2 will be reading “Katie in London” as our class text in English. This text tells the story about a  young girl called Katie and her brother Jack who visit London with Grandma when something unexpected happens . . . One of the Trafalgar Square lions comes to life and takes them on a wonderful tour of all the best sights! Including Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, Big Ben and the London Eye. We will be writing diary entries as if we are Katie in London! We will also be completing some non-fiction writing about London and the famous landmarks. We will then be using our class texts to apply the following in our writing:

-Spell  longer      words   using  suffixes such as ment, ness, ful, less, ly

-Use expanded noun phrases to describe, expand and specify

-Use subordination (when, if, that or because).





We will be learning to:


  • Recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 tables, including recognising odd and even numbers.
  • Recognise, find, name and write factions 1/3, 1/4, 2/4, 1/2, 3/4 of a length, shape, set of objects, or quantity.
  • Recognise & use symbols for pounds (£) and pence (p); combine amounts to make a particular value.
  • Tell & write the time to quarter past/to the hour & draw the hands on a clock face to show these times.


Please continue to make use of Times Tables Rockstars, as a good knowledge of multiplication is needed throughout the Maths curriculum.

We will be learning about the lives of Kings and Queens from different time periods by creating a historical timeline for our Topic display.
