This unit of Maths work is based on Number. We will be counting in 2's, 3's,5's and 10's. We will look at the value of numbers and odd and even numbers. Children in 2H will enjoy learning to write, read and record numbers as numerals and as words.
This unit of English is based on producing our own calligram poems. We will be looking at the features of a poem and we will be enriching our vocabulary with lots of new words.
RE- New Beginnings
Through this theme we will explore how we feel when we make a new start.Children will have the opportunity to look at how the world began. The children will look at prayers and bible readings linked to the story of creation.
Science-Living things and their habitats
During this unit of work we will explore and compare the differences between things that are living, dead, and things that have never been alive.
Geography- Physical and human features
Here the children will be given opportunities to use geographical vocabulary to refer to key physical features including beach, coast, forest, hill, mountain and valley. They will develop their language of key human features including city, town, village and factory. The children will go on a local walk to explore their local environment and will enjoy a day at Crosby beach where they will see lots of the physical features.
PE- Team games
Children will develop simple tactics for attacking and defending.
Children will be given weekly spellings to take home. They will be given them on a Monday and will be tested the following Monday. This will allow the children the chance to rehearse them at home with adult support. Children will be asked to write the words in a mixed up order to ensure the children can spell them correctly. We will send home a spelling slip to let you know how your child has scored. In September all children will be tested on the same spellings in order for us to assess each child's ability. Spellings may well change after the assessment period.
Children are required to learn their 2's, 3's, 5's and 10's times tables. We will be having lots of opportunities to do this in class using practical resources. As the year goes on children will be tested to see if they can pass the times table challenge. We will send the given set home on a Monday and again they will be tested the following week.
