Class 2

Welcome to Class 2


'Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it'~ Proverbs 22:6


Dear Parents / Carers,


Just like that, our final term is upon us and what a busy one it is going to be!  Our superstar Year 1s are preparing for their phonics screening, our fabulous Year 2s are getting all ready for SATS, we will be celebrating the coronation of King Charles, planting seeds and watching them grow, learning about a historic explorer who changed the world and reflecting on the Ascension of Jesus.


Here is a little bit more information about the topics that we will be covering this half-term, extra information can be found on our curriculum letter below.


In English we will be warming up our author brains and writing fingers by re-writing one of my FAVOURITE texts: Pip and Egg by Alex Latimer.  We will then be moving onto non-fiction and creating an information text all about plants to support our learning in Science.


In Maths Year 1 will be spending some time consolidating their learning so far this year with numbers to 50.  They will then be exploring early multiplication and division.  Year 2 are going to be completing their learning on fractions before moving onto measuring time, mass, capacity and temperature. 


In Science we are going to begin the half-term by exploring plants.  We will be setting up some experiments that we will continue to monitor throughout the half-term.  We will then be starting a brand new topic: Living things and their habitats!  We will be remembering what makes something 'alive' and looking at what a habitat and microhabitat is. 


In R.E. under our topic 'serving' we will be learning about the Ascension story and exploring the Holy Spirit and how this brought joy, peace and love following Jesus' ascension and how it continues to do so in our own lives.


In P.E. we will be hoping that the sunshine is on our side and heading outside to develop our ball skills.  We will be developing the skill of controlling a ball with our feet and a racket.  Please note that P.E. will be on Monday and Thursday afternoons this half-term, come to school wearing games kit on these days.


In Computing we will be using Purple Mash's tool '2Sequence'n to create spreadsheets.


In D.T. we will be designing, making and evaluating a pop-up information book using levers and sliders.


In Music we will be using our voices and other instruments to create music that makes you dance!
