This term our topic is all about the Stone Age and Iron Age, as well as Earthquakes and Volcanoes. We will also be learning about Remembrance, Forces, The Earth and Beyond!
Computing - We will be learning about staying safe online, how systems work and how to create multi-media presentations, we are very lucky to have our new iPad’s to support our learning.
French – The children will be taught French on a Friday afternoon by Mrs Walsh, an experienced Primary and Secondary French teacher.
Spelling - Children will be given an overview of the spellings for the term which will be glued into their homework diaries. A login for Spelling Shed will also be given to help practise spellings at home. New spellings for this term are available via the link below. Each week we complete a spelling session on Thursday mornings and a spelling check on Fridays.
Reading – The children know which book band they are on in school and are supported to independently change their books when completed. The children independently read before lessons start each day and we expect our children to read daily at home, a mixture of independent and aloud is great.
Guided reading – This will take place on Tuesday mornings focusing on the book ‘Stig of the Dump.’ English homework will be handed out on a Monday to be handed in the following Monday based on our text looking at different areas of reading from VIPERS.
V – Vocabulary
I – Infer
P – Predict
E – Explain
R – Retrieve
S – Sequence and Summarise
Maths - Please continue to help your child to learn all their tables, having a solid understanding of these really help in sessions. Each child will have a Times Table Rockstars username and password to help with practise both in school and at home. Our times table test will take place each Friday alongside a Big Maths test, the Learn Its are based on the previous week’s test. Maths homework will be given out on a Monday to be handed in the following Monday.
Music – Class 2 will begin with singing and composition lessons on Wednesday afternoons. The second half of the term Mrs Tuffin will lead our lessons on composition. We will be preparing for our trip to Manchester Arena as part of the Young Voices concert in Spring Term – watch this space!
PE - This term PE will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and will consist of Multi-skills, Badminton, Tchoukball, Tag rugby and Netball. We recommend the children have their kit in school daily as lessons may change due to weather. Kits must include, trainers, socks, joggers/leggings, tops, hoodies/jumpers. We have football, netball and other festivals coming in this term too, where children will have the opportunity to represent school in competition.
