Happy new year to you all. Welcome to the second term of this academic year. The children are enjoying it in year 2 and our class topic is "Living Things."
We have started this term by continuing and deepening our skills in grammar. Our class book is "The Twits." We are also encouraging children to add more details to their writing (by using adjectives and adverbs). The children will continue to develop communication skills through regular speaking and listening activities including reading, acting and expressing feelings.
This term in Mathematics, the children will continue to develop their understanding of addition and subtraction. This will be taught through a problem solving approach, involving number and money. Other aspects of mathematics including learning about place value, solving shape and space problems and measuring length and weight. Where possible a strong emphasis will be placed on supporting children on learning their 2, 5 and 10 times tables.
In science we have started by looking at animals and their off-springs including human beings. We explored the school forest for our investigations.
In Art, we are looking at rock paintings from the ancient tribes we tried to create our own.
Our focus this term will be developing skills in Rugby and swimming. We will be helping the children to swim on their backs and front.
In ICT we have been create pictures and we will continue to develop our skills in word.
