welcome to class 2
This term's topic focuses on how technology has changed over time.
This term, we will look at writing in the past tense. The pupils will learn the difference between past and present tense as well as learning all of the spelling rules. They will also learn about the past progressive form e.g. was walking.
In the spring term, pupils will build on their KIRF knowledge by multiplying and dividing. They will also look at how data can be represented in graphs and charts.
We will use real artefacts to identify differences between technology of the past and today. We shall try to place these items in chronological order and learn about their invention.
Art and Design
We will take apart real artefacts to see the components inside. We will then study these closely to produce observational drawings.
Outdoor Learning – Tuesday - In school, we have waterproof trousers and jackets for every child. All that you need to provide is a pair of wellington boots for your child to wear. It is recommended to bring in other clothes to change in to. Every child will wear waterproof trousers and their wellies each time we go outside, and they will wear a waterproof jacket if it is raining or windy.
PE - Friday - Children should come to school wearing PE shorts, t-shirt and tracksuit, or wearing usual school uniform and bring their PE kit to change in to. If your child wears earrings, they must either take the earrings out or put plasters/surgical tape over the earrings.
Reading percentages are calculated on a Thursday. Reading records are checked on Thursdays. Children need to read at least three times a week.
FAME (Whole class violin lessons) will take place on Thursday.
Miss Edwards will teach the class on Thursday afternoon and also every other Thursday morning.
Homework will be given on Friday and should be returned the following Thursday.
Library - Friday (Children can borrow a book from our school library. They must return their chosen book in order to borrow another one.)
