Class 2 – Term 2

Welcome back, we hope you all had a lovely week off. Going into the colder weather can we please just remind everyone to ensure children are sent with warm coats and winter wear.

This term our topic is ‘Blast off’.  We will be learning all about the planets and space.  We are looking forward to learning lots of interesting facts.

In Literacy this term, we will be reading ‘The man on the moon’ by Simon Bartram.  We be learning about Bob’s new job on the moon and going on our very own space journey in class. We will be focusing on recounting events in order and discussing our favorite parts of the story. Are there really aliens on the moon?

Our second book in literacy for the term will be ‘Whatever next’ by Jill Murphy. We will be describing fictional locations and events, expanding our adjectives vocabulary.

In Maths this term we will be focusing on shape, securing our skills with addition and subtraction, sequencing events and number facts.  With our Year 1’s we are pushing them to refine their number formation and recognition of mathematical symbols. Our Year 2’s will continue with their times tables and any practice they can do on these at home is much appreciated as their times tables really help them with all the math work they then do in the classroom.
