Dear Parents and Children,
Welcome to Year 2. We have heard lots of FABULOUS things about you all, and we are very excited about the coming year. Here is an outline of what you will be learning this half term.
In our Golden Strands Topic Work, we shall be learning about the environment and the impact that litter has on it. We shall be carrying out our own research and analysing our results.
In Science, the topic is Materials And Their Properties. We shall be carrying out lots of practical experiments, and drawing our own conclusions from these.
In Art & Design we are using different materials to create a portrait of ourselves, and mixing paints to create different hues.
In RE we will be learning stories from the Old Testament, and writing about them from different perspectives.
In Literacy we are learning about Traditional Tales and writing our very own versions.
Homework: Your child will be given homework every Monday, and this needs to be returned on Thursday PLEASE, due to quarantining the books. There will be a piece of Maths (from the topic taught that week) a reading book, and sentences to be completed. There will also be 10 words to learn for a spelling challenge on Thursday. At the moment the reading book will be taken from the Oxford reading Tree, until our Rising Stars online service begins.
P.E. will take place, but how and when has not yet been confirmed.
Collective Worship will be in the classrooms this year. We look forward to being able to invite the parents in once again, in the near future.
If you have any problems, please feel free to write a note, or phone the office and I shall do my best to help.
