Year 2F 2019 - 2020

Mrs Freeman

Welcome to Year 2!

Welcome back after the LONG Christmas break! I have been so excited to be back in school with you all! Well done to all of you for completing your homework project, your 'Houses from the Past' are fantastic! Have a look at the photographs below! I hope you are all ready for another fun, busy and exciting term ahead!

 

What will we be learning in Spring 1?

English

In English we will be looking at 'Fantay Stories', such as 'Dragon Machine' by Helen Ward and 'George and the Dragon', By Chris Wormell. We will be producing our own dragon paintings and writing a descriptive piece to bring them to life! I can't wait to dive into your dragon fantasy worlds!

      

                                           

Watch this space for uploads of our most recent English work!

Mathematics

In maths we will be looking at:

  • Place Value - Odd and even numbers
  • Addition and subtraction
  • Multiplication and Division

We will also be doing a weekly 'MAD MINUTES' session, where the children are timed whilst completing their times tables. Ready, steady, get practising!     

                                                          

Science

In science we will be learning about Living things and their Habitats. We will learn about the factors that decide whether something is alive, dead or never been alive! Is a bench alive? Has it ever been alive? What do all living things do?

We will also explore the school grounds in search of microhabitats and in the classroom we will compare habitats and look how animals adapt to their environment. Wow, we have so much to learn, we better get started! Ready, steady, SCIENTISTS!

                                            

History

Our history topic is called , 'How has food changed over time?' We will look back at the Stuart period and see where this fits on the timeline. We will look at how people lived in this time, how they dressed and what they ate. Why would food be different in the past? Do you think the Stuarts went to McDonalds?

                                                 

 

RE

Our RE unit this half term is ' Why is the Bible special?'. We will be reflecting on our own knowledge and use of the Bible and what we have already learnt from it. We will share our own special books and explain why they are special to us. It is also important to share other Holy books that we are aware of so we will do this throughout the topic. What can you learn this half term from the Bible?

                                                     

Important reminders 

  • PE kits need to be in school every day
  • Book bags must be in school every day
  • Homework is given out on a Friday and handed in every Thursday.

 

We will upload any new useful information to our webpage throughout the half term and upload photographs of our fabulous work! 

If you have any questions regarding your child's learning, please do not hesitate to speak to Mrs Freeman.

Many thanks,

Mrs Freeman
