Welcome to Class 2
Our value this half term is SELF-DISCIPLINE
I hope you all had a wonderful break and are now looking forward to all the exciting things the Summer term will bring.Miss Whittaker, Mrs Whittaker and Mrs Smith n would like to thank all the children for their hard work last half term.
Miss Whittaker is your class teacher. We have an amazing team of people to help us in Class 2- Mrs Whittaker and Mrs Smith.
Our current topic is 'Buckets and Spades'
We begin our English this half term by looking at a selection of books about the Lighthouse Keeper. We will be looking at characters and events and shall be relating them to our own experiences. We will practise using ’when’ for subordination of time, powerful verbs and different conjunctions (because, yet, but, so, or, when). You can practise writing sentences at home. We will also study persuasive posters during English, working towards creating our own posers to persuade people to visit the seaside.
During maths, we will become familiar with some of the methods used in Year 3, such as adding and subtracting 3 digit numbers and
practising using a number line to solve division problems with remainders.
We will become ‘time detectives’ as we explore seaside resorts during the Victorian Era and compare them with the seaside resorts of today.
During our science lessons, we will look at a range of materials and investigate why different materials are used at the seaside, such as plastic for a bucket. We will have fun making and testing the properties of a range of materials and consider questions, such as ‘What if a bucket was made from paper?’
Reading books are sent home each night and need to be brought to school everyday. Guided Reading lessons and Phonics will take place daily at school.
Please continue to listen to your child read each evening. Talk about the characters and what happens in the story, asking your child to re-tell the story once they have read it to you. What was their favourite part of the story? Why? Ask lots of 'who, what, where, when, why' questions. If you have time, why not sign up to Oxford Owl? There are hundreds of tablet friendly eBooks to read online and it's FREE!
