Welcome to Maple Class!
Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome to our class page. I hope you are all enjoying your summer holidays and are excited to start back in Year 2. Each half term, this page will be updated with the new learning that will take place over the term.
This half term our topic is ‘Animals and their habitats’. In this topic, we will study lots of different animals and their habitats. We will learn how animals have adapted to their habitats and we will also link this to our Geography work. We will learn about the 7 continents and 5 oceans and where different habitats are located in the world.
In English, we will be looking at the story ‘Where the wild things are’ by Maurice Sendak. The children will write their own portal narrative and a non chronological report.
Our Art work will be based on the artist ‘Pacita Abed’ and her underwater wilderness series. The children will look at the textures and patterns in Abed’s work and use this to create their own underwater sea paintings.
In RE we will be learning about Christianity: Who was Jesus and why he is important to Christians today.
The children will have a daily PE lesson for 30 minutes. You do not need to bring a PE kit in, as the children will wear their school uniform for PE.
Homework will be set each Monday and must be completed by the Friday of the same week. Phonics books will be sent home with your child on a Monday so please ensure that your child is reading every day to improve their reading skills.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to catch me at the end of the day or arrange another time to meet.
Miss Newsholme and Miss Simpson
