Welcome to class 2C
We have had a brilliant Spring term and now we have an even busier Summer Term planned. We will be having a real focus on comprehension as part of our reading this term along with speeding up our times tables. Our class topic will be Rainforest’s. Some of our key questions will be;
What animals live there?
How was it discovered?
Why is the weather different?
Where is the Amazon Rainforest?
What are the similarities and differences between the Amazon Rainforest and Sherwood Forest?
During literacy this half term we will be learning new vocabulary and looking at the meaning of new words. We shall also be listening to, and writing our own poetry.
In numeracy we shall be looking a shape, space and measure. Why not practise at home?
How long does it take to run the bath?
Who can throw or kick the ball the furthest?
Can you put your family in height order using the measurements?
Now that Spring has finally arrived we will be looking at Plants during this term. We will pop back to the allotments regularly to observe the seasonal changes and talk about the new growth.
We shall also be exploring the world of insects and create our own microhabitats. Looks of scientific discovery and exploration to continue our enthusiasm from Science week last term.
In music we will be thinking about sounds from the rainforest and even make our own instruments.
With the excitement created by the Commonwealth Games and our visit from Eden Francis, during PE we shall focus on Athletics as well as preparation for sports day.
Remember, all children have targets, please familiarise yourselves with these to help your child progress especially in our run up to SAT’s which will take place during the month of May.
