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 are looking at the text Man on the Moon by Simon Bartrum and children will be reading and re-enacting the story before attempting some writing of their own based on the story.
In Maths we will be starting to look at number and place value in a very practical and contextualised way.
PE is on a Monday morning and a Wednesday afternoon and we will need black joggers, a white t-shirt, a black jumper/hoodie and trainers. Please remember to have your PE kit in 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 is set on Fridays and is due in on Wednesdays.
Spellings will come home with homework and the test will be done on a Friday morning.
