We are hoping you all had a lovely Christmas holiday and we wish you a Happy New Year. We are very excited ahead of a brand new term in Year 2.
This term we are very much looking forward to learning about our topics 'Sensational Safari' and 'The Great Fire of London'. During our 'Sensational Safari' topic we will be learning about Kenya and what it is like to live in a culture different to our own. We will also be learning about African animals and identifying what a Maasai culture is like. We will be designing and making African necklaces and African beaded jewellery.
Next half term we will learning about 'The Great Fire of London' and we will be going on a trip to Staircase House in Stockport. We will be designing and then making our own Tudor Houses.
In Literacy, we will be developing our understanding of non-fiction texts, including writing a non-chronological report and writing a recount about our Staircase House trip. This half term we will be exploring the story 'Lila and the Secret of Rain'. During our exploration of this story, we will be writing setting descriptions, diary entries and writing our own version.
In Maths we will be developing our understanding of division and recalling related multiplication facts. We will also be exploring shape and the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. Later in the term we will be developing our understanding of measure including length and height.
Thank you for your continued support.
Mrs C Flint (Class Teacher) and Mrs J Turner (Teaching Assistant)
