Y2 B Mrs Beck

Mrs Beck’s Class

This term’s topic is called
‘Space Explorers’

This half term our topic will be ‘Space Explorers’.

As historians we will find out about some famous people in space and events such as the ‘first man to walk on the moon’.

As designers we will be learning about different joining methods to create our own explorers vehicle. We will have to think about how our vehicle will move.

As scientists we will be investigating different materials and thinking about their properties and uses. We will be classifying and testing materials in different ways. 

We will also be learning about the ‘Easter Story’ and taking part in a number of activities linked to Easter.

We will continue working on our ‘School Health Award’ by taking part in activities linked to this year’s ‘Sport Relief’


As writers this half term we will be focusing on using different types of punctuation and spellings of words with different suffixes (including rules). We will develop our stamina for writing using:

  • The story book ‘Man on the Moon’ by Simon Bartram
  • Imaginary and real recounts
  • Fact files about Space

We will be celebrating ‘World Book Day’ by representing a favourite character using props or costumes and by stopping to read in response to a bell at any point in the day!


As mathematicians we will be:

Finding fractions of shapes, numbers and groups of objects.

Reasoning and comparing fractions.

Solving problems with fractions.

Practicing multiplying and dividing numbers and groups of objects.
