Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome to our class page. I hope you have all had a lovely May holiday break and are ready to begin our final half term in Year 2.
This half term our topic is ‘The County of Cheshire’. In this topic, we will be working geographically to use maps to identify key features of Cheshire. We will also learn about human and physical features of Cheshire. As Covid restrictions are easing, I am hoping to book a trip for the class to enhance the children’s learning.
In English, we will be looking at the story ‘Rosie Revere Engineer’ by Andrea Beaty. The children will write invention narratives and explanation texts.
In Maths, we will be continuing with our learning on Monday and reviewing our operations (addition, subtraction and multiplication and division). We we then revisit time and measures. Your child should have a TT Rockstars login and password. Please could you encourage them to play the game as many times as they can to improve their times tables knowledge.
In DT we will have a skill focus on cooking and nutrition and the children will design, make and evaluate a healthy snack or a smoothie.
Our RE learning will be based on the question ‘What is Religion?’ and the children will explore various religions.
The children will have a daily PE every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please could you send your child’s PE kit into school on Mondays and leave in school till the Friday. On Friday, I will ask the children to take home their kit to be washed and returned the following Monday.
Homework will be set each Friday and must be completed by the Friday of the following week. We will continue to use google classroom to set homework. Please can the children complete the work set online in their homework books and submit a photo via google classroom. Phonics/Reading books will be sent home with your child on a Monday and Friday 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 email me or arrange for a time to have a phone call/google meet.
Miss Newsholme and Miss Simpson
