Hello all! I hope you had a lovely Christmas and are ready for the new year to begin.
This term, we will be focusing on the topic Brrr, why is it so cold outside? and to launch our topic, we have a very exciting trip to one of the UK's biggest aquariums, The deep (on Friday 12th January 2024 ). Throughout this topic, we will be learning all about the animals and environment in Antarctica, particularly penguins! In line with this, we will be reading the book Lost and Found in Guided Reading and English, and writing an adventure story about the tales of a lost penguin! In Maths, we will be learning all about money and multiplication and division.
I hope you enjoy the last day of your holidays, I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!
If you have any queries or questions, please feel free to talk to me at my classroom door after school
I hope you all had a lovely half term and are feeling refreshed and ready for another busy term of learning in Year 2. In Guided Reading this half term, we will be reading the text The Owl Who Was Afraid Of The Dark, where we will follow Plop as he confronts his fears and has many adventures throughout. In English, we will be writing our very own animal adventure stories based on our class text. In Maths, we will be continuing to add and subtract some tricky numbers, before moving on to learning our 2,5 and 10 times tables in our multiplication and division unit. Our topic unit this half term is called What's the weather like today? where we will be learning about the four seasons we have in a year, and how the weather changes over the course of that time.
Forest school will be on Monday as usual, so please make sure your child comes into school with their clothes to change into. This half term, Active Fusion will be teaching our PE lessons as we begin our new dance unit! PE will be on a Wednesday this half term.
As we move closer to Christmas, Year 2 have the fantastic challenge of learning and performing our KS1 Nativity this year. They will not only be singing with the lovely Year 1 class, but also acting and having speaking parts too!
If you have any questions or queries, please email me via email@example.com
See you all on Monday!
