Last term was an extremely busy time for Year 2 as we prepared for the KS1 SATs, but we are very proud of how hard all of the children worked. As we enter our final term for the year, the children have got a very exciting and fun-filled term. Our main topic this term is ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ where will be exploring all about plants and nature, even creating our own ‘monster’ plants. So far the children have started researching a range of deadly and smelly plants, using computers and information books, for an information text that they will continue to write in their English lessons. As we progress throughout the term we will move onto poetry about Zoo animals, following our trip to the Zoo later this month. In Maths we have explored the tricky fractions, ending in a fraction treasure hunt that the children thoroughly enjoyed. We will be working on areas that we feel the children would benefit from extra work and would prepare them ready for Year 3, including; measurements, division and a range of word problems. Also the children will be doing a lot of recycling and reusing, creating a recycling fashion show with their own clothes made from recycled materials. Whilst this is all going on, they will also be out in the fabulous sunshine (or rain) weekly, planting seeds, observing growth and looking after our garden area.
Please can we remind you that Swimming is on Monday and Friday, and as we get closer to the KS1 Sports day can you please send in PE kits for Monday-Friday. Home learning will still be sent home on Friday and due in the following Thursday. Please also remember to read daily with your children and practise those cracking maths against the clock. Thank you!
