We have got a busy Autumn term ahead of us.

Have a look at our news page to see what we have been up to during our first term in Year 2...

Or take a peek at our gallery to see us at work...

Discuss, chat, share your ideas/learning/findings on our blogs...

Autumn Term

This term we will be exploring 'Where in the world are we?' in our Topic lessons. We will recap our work/knowledge of our world by naming the 7 Continents, the various seas and oceans, locating and naming many of the countries that make up our wonderful world. We will focus on the United Kingdom with an emphasis on our locality. We will then compare and contrast this to Kenya in Africa. Learning about the landscapes, people, living situations, food, animals, climate, clothing, jobs etc.  In our art/dt lessons we will explore various techniques and compare similarities and differences in the work of the artists Pablo Picasso and Elisha Ongere through watercolours, pastels, sketching and sculpture. And we will be designing and sewing our own Barney Bear to help us explore our world. We will also be making a Tribal African mask.

In Literacy we will continue exploring our Read Write Inc scheme and apply this to a variety of writing tasks completed across our curriculum subjects. Tasks such as story writing, report writing, recount writing, information texts and poetry. Extending this further into the Literacy and Language scheme.

In Maths we will continue our exploration of our number system - developing and enhancing our problem solving and reasoning skills through ' Mastery Maths'. We will extend our use of the numberline and various other ways of recording 'our working' (column method) to help us with our + and - . Linking these building skills to multiplication, division, money, time and measures.

In Science we will be exploring our topic of materials and their function and suitability for certain jobs. This will be linked to the text 'Halibut Jackson' by David Lucas.

PE

Our PE lessons are on a Tuesday and Thursday so please make sure you have your kit in.

As the weather can be cool at this time of year, and will get cooler, I would aim to keep a pair of track suit pants or leggins in your bag for those outdoor lessons just incase it's a little chilly

Talk Homework/SATs prep

Our talk homework will come home on a Friday. Please return it by Thursday of the following week so a new piece can be added ready for you and your son/daughter to complete together.

We will aim to change reading books daily when they are returned to school. If we don't see a written comment in the diary we will assume the text hasn't been read yet.

Please keep using and checking the websites I've listed to help your son/daughters journey towards their SATs in May.
