News from Year Two
Welcome to a new term in Year 2. Please have a read of the information below; this should give you a brief overview of the topics that we will be covering this term.
As in previous terms, homework will be given out on a Friday and due back in on a Wednesday. It will be related to work covered in class and is meant as a chance for the children to consolidate their learning. If homework is not completed I will work with those children during their break/golden time to help them complete the task set. This work is in addition to the regular reading at home.
I will be teaching PE on a Monday afternoon, and this term the focus is on multi-sports and games. Mr LeClerc will be teaching a session on a Wednesday afternoon. Please make sure that your child has their PE kit (named) in school on both days.
Our science topic for this term is everyday materials. The children will be investigating the properties of different materials. The children will be learning how to code as well as spending time on creating and editing images.
Our first topic is, ‘What was it like when the Queen came to the throne in 1953?’ We will then be looking at the physical and human features of the seaside, and what it would be like to live beside the sea.
We will be learning about the reggae sound in music and in RE our topic is religious leaders. In art we will be learning about fashion during the 1950’s and designing our own piece of clothing to fit that time and in DT we will be focusing on moving mechanisms.
We also have our school trip to look forward to. It I going to be a wonderful day out to Kidzania, please look out for the letter to follow.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to pop in to school to see me, it is ever so important that we work together to provide your child with the very best experience at school.
