Year 2W 2019 - 2020
Welcome back after the short break. It is great to see that you have all come back ready to learn. I have loved looking at your homework, some of your globes are fantastic! This half term is going to be busy with lots of work, investigating and exciting experiences!
What will we be learning?
In maths we will be looking at:
- Addition and subtraction
- Telling the time
- 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!
In English, we will be looking at 'recounts', particularly diary entries. We will be producing reading texts that are written in the form of a diary such as 'Dairy of a Wombat' by Jackie French. This will lead on to us writing our own diary entries. Towards the end of this term we will be reading different forms of poetry such as poetry that explores our senses, humourous poetry and poems with a theme (dinosaurs and monsters)!
Our geography topic this term is, ‘The Seven Wonders of the World?’ This will involve firstly looking at our local area and discussing what we like about it and then looking more globally at the world map and locating ‘the wonders in our world’.
In science, we will be learning about ‘Materials’. We will learn scientific vocabulary such as: squash, bend, stretch and twist. We will carry out several investigations to discover why balls bounce, which materials are the toughest and this will lead up to us designing our very own bridge! Will your bridge be the strongest?
Our RE unit this term is, ‘Easter: How do symbols help us to understand the story?’ We will discussing the word ‘celebration’, what this means and the feelings associated with different celebrations. This will then lead up to looking at the ‘true meaning ‘of Easter and the symbols that represent this.
