Hello Class 2.
We have planned a very busy and exciting Summer term. On this page you will be able to read about some of the activities that are coming up.
General Class Information:
Home Learning activities are sent home each half term and need to be returned by the date shown at the top of the sheet.
PE is on a Wednesday afternoon. Please come into school PE ready every Wednesday.
Phonic reading books are changed weekly.
In English this term we will be reading a range of non-chronological reports and explanations. We will use these texts to support our own creative writing in English and across the wider curriculum.
We will be researching Queen Elizabeth II life and reign to support our non-fiction writing to celebrate The Platinum Jubilee.
In our Maths lessons we will be exploring problem solving using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will use different methods and confidently explain which are the most efficient methods to use.
We will also practise telling the time to o'clock, half past, quarter to and quarter past the hour. As we become more confident we will also learn to tell the time to five minute intervals.
We will enjoy practical Maths activities involving measures and lengths.
Practising our times tables can really support our Maths in the classroom.
Using Numbots and Times Tables Rockstars is an excellent way to develop Maths skills in a fun and engaging way. Please let us know if you need a new log in to access these sites.
