Year 2W 2023 - 2024
Welcome back to the second half of the first term. We have a lot of exciting things planned this term!
In maths, we will begin by focussing on doubling and halving. Later in the term, we will begin to think about telling the time. Do you know what time it is now? We will also be doing weekly 'MAD MINUTES' sessions, where the children are timed whilst completing their times tables. Ready, steady, get practising!
In English, we are focussing on the book 'The Cherry Tree Farm’ by Enid Blyton. The children will be making predictions, exploring the front cover and making inferences based on what they have read. Towards the end of this half term, we will look at a non-fiction text all about Guy Fawkes.
In History, our topic is 'Why do we remember the fifth of November? ‘Throughout this topic, we will be exploring the events that led to Guy Fawkes plot to set the Houses of Parliament on fire. Have you heard any fireworks lately? Was his plan successful?
Our Science topic continues to be 'Materials Matter'. We are now focussing on materials that are used to make different balls and the reason why these materials have been used. Which ball was the bounciest, the football or the bouncy ball?
In RE, we will be focussing on the topic 'Christmas - Why was the birth of Jesus so important?’ Our learning will be focussed around many ‘Big Questions’ and we will be discussing how to spread the good news of Jesus' birth.
The children will be practising for our Christmas production over the next few weeks. If your child brings home lines for their speaking part, please could you support them in practising these at home. We look forward to showing you the production!
