Class 2

Welcome to Class 2.

 

We have a very exciting year ahead and I am sure the children will enjoy learning and working together. Below is information about our class routines to help parents have a feel of what your children are doing and when.

 

Class 2's Teacher is Mr Scully.

 

TOPIC

Our topic this half term is 'Through The Ages'.

In the Through the Ages project, we will learn about three different periods of British prehistory: the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We will discover terminology relating to time and sequence dates to make a timeline. We then explore the changes to people, homes and lifestyle throughout the different periods and investigate examples of prehistoric settlements, monuments, burials and artefacts in detail. In addition, we will also study how technology improved over time, including how the discovery of different metals changed the way that people lived.

 

 

ENGLISH

Our text this half term is Stig of the Dump. We will be using poetic language and word play in fiction and explanations in non-fiction. Our spelling will continue to focus on our 'orange words' as well as our weekly spelling units.

 

MATHS

Our Maths themes this half term are place value and times tables. Each Monday and Friday we will be working hard with our Beat That Maths.

 

PE

Class 2 will have a PE lesson on a Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure your child has the correct kit for these days. Swimming lessons will also be on Tuesday afternoons.

 

MUSIC

We will also be enjoying music lessons on a Tuesday morning with the Wider Opportunities scheme with each child learning how to play a brass instrument which will be brought home each week for the children to practise.

 

HOMEWORK

Homework will be sent home on a Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday. Each week children will have a Maths and English piece to complete in their homework book. In addition, children will be expected to read each day and this is to be recorded in their reading record diary which should be returned each day. We also use TT Rockstars which can be accessed at home and this is a fun way to learn and improve their times tables knowledge.

 

Throughout each day we will also be taking part in fun activities such as the Daily Mile and Go Noodle which the children enjoy.

If you have any questions please speak to me at the end of the day or contact me at school.

Black History Month

Below is a link to some websites looking at, and teaching us about, Black History Month. October is the usual time when Black History is highlighted although it does not have to just be October. We have been discussing and looking at these links in school but feel free to take a look at home.
