We have settled into Year 2 really well and are busy learning new things!
Our new topic is...
To Infinity and Beyond!
In Topic we will be immersing ourselves in everything to do with Space! We will be learning all about the artist Peter Thorpe and creating our very own Space picture using his style for inspiration. We will be learning all about Apollo 11 and the moon landings alongside learning about the planets in the solar system. Towards the end of our topic we will be looking at the properties of different materials and thinking about what materials would be best to use to create a space suit (and giving good reasons why!). As a special treat during this topic, we have a visit from a mobile planetarium which promises to be a day full of Space related fun and learning!
In English over the first 2 weeks we have been looking at the text Look up! Children have learnt about adjectives, expanded noun phrases and have written their own endings to the story. Next week we are looking at the text Man on the Moon. Children will be reading and re-enacting the story before attempting some writing of their own based on the story.
In Maths we have been starting to look at number and place value in a very practical and contextualised way. We are now moving on to addition and number bonds. We are following a build it, draw it, say it, write it learning phase in Maths which helps us to gain a deeper understanding of our learning.
PE is on a Thursday Afternoon and Children need to come to school wearing black joggers, a white t-shirt, a black jumper/hoodie and trainers. Please remember wear your PE kit to school for EVERY PE session! Thank you!
*Children who have pierced ears will either need their earrings taken out or tape to cover them for PE lessons. * Staff are NOT allowed to take out children's earrings.
Homework and spellings are not being set at the moment due to current Covid restrictions. Children have been given reading diaries and reading books which will be staying in school for the time being to minimise risk. We are reading with your children regularly at school. Please try and read with your children at home as well.
School Uniform - Children are expected to arrive at school in correct school uniform - Grey/Black Trousers/shorts/skirt (with cycling shorts underneath), white t-shirt and green Bushmead jumper. Black shoes (no trainers please!) and long hair should always be tied back. No nail varnish is allowed and please no bows in children's hair.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
