Welcome back! We hope you’ve had a fantastic Christmas and that the children are excited to be back at school.
Our Topic this term is Science based and we will be investigating DINOSAURS and discussing whether they would make good pets. Through whole class investigations, the children will also be developing their scientific skills and will be posing questions and running tests to prove or disprove ideas. The children will be classifying animals and dinosaurs using specific criteria. They will also research animals that lay eggs and they will also be looking at identifying living, dead or never alive providing reasoned justifications for their ideas.
Reading books can be changed twice a week, on your child's designated reading day.
Our P.E slot will now be on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
On Friday 17th March, it will be our class assembly and we look forward to sharing our learning with you.
Please don't forget to send pupils in with their homework books and spellings on Tuesdays as work is stuck in on Wednesday afternoon.
Welcome to Year 2! We hope you’ve had a fantastic summer and that the children are excited to be back at school. We are thrilled about having the opportunity to continue teaching your wonderful children and are looking forward to the busy, hardworking, but fun packed term that lies ahead of us.
Our Topic this term is Geography based and we will be investigating beaches and the coast comparing them to our local town and surrounding cities. Our Learning Challenge is "Why do we love to live beside the seaside?"
The children will also be developing their map skills through practical activities and will be creating their own maps.
During Anti-Bullying week, we looked at adjectives that described our feelings and this helped us write our own senses poem. We also looked at using the suffix -ing to write a poem about the actions of a bully and compared these actions to the actions of a friend. The children wrote their own poems and then we wrote class ones that collaborated our ideas.
Please find attached some book review templates to help your child. We have done verbal book reviews with the children for a few weeks in class and they have also been taught how to do book reviews during lesson times. The templates can be used as prompts if needed. Once your child has completed their home reading book and have shown a good understanding of the book, a book review needs to be completed so that your child's book can be changed.
