Maple Class

Year 2 phonics screening check Information for parents 11.11.20

 Maple Class!

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome to our class page. I hope you are all enjoying your half term break and are looking forward to returning to school.

This half term our topic is ‘Humans’. In this topic, we will study Animals: Including humans and we will find out about the basic needs of animals and humans. We will also be learning all about healthy eating and the different types of foods.

In Geography, we will comparing the UK to a Non-European Country. We have decided to compare our home town Winsford to Nairobi (the capital of Kenya). As part of this topic, we will be exploring the human and physical features of both towns and we will be using atlas’s and maps to compare both places.

In English, we will be looking at the story ‘The River’ by Marc Martin. The children will write their own circular narrative and a letters.

Our DT work will be based on the British sculpture ‘Antony Gormley’ and his free standing sculptures. The children will design, make and evaluate their own free standing sculptures using a range of materials.

In RE we will be learning about Christianity: Why is the Bible a special book to Christians.

At the end of this term, the children will be taking a phonics screening test. If your child has been sent home with the phonics sound cards or green words, please could they practice these every night to support them with their learning. Here is the link for the Powerpoint shown on the parents zoom call on the 11th of November

The children will have a daily PE lesson for 45 minutes. You do not need to bring a PE kit in, as the children will wear their school uniform for PE. However, if you have a spare pair of trainers that can be left in school, please send them in with your child.

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 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 catch me at the end of the day or arrange another time to meet.
