Muck, Mess and Mixtures is our topic for this half-term.
We will be exploring messy mixtures using our hands and describing what they feel like. We are hoping to have some messy fun - following recipes and working on some messy art activities!
English will continue to focus on care with handwriting, spelling and punctuation. Remember - Capital letters and full stops.
The children are trying hard to use adjectives in their writing, to add description and make their writing more interesting. The book we are using is George's Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl. Can we create our own super disgusting, descriptive medicines? Wait and see!
In Maths we are looking at money, using coins to make set amounts in different ways, and solving problems involving money. We will also be looking at multiplication and division before Christmas. LEARN your times tables :) 2, 5 and 10 times tables please.
Mysteries is our R.E. topic this half term. The children have been thinking about mysteries - how big is the sky? How many stars are there? They have asked questions about heaven. What is it like there? Do you get wings? We are learning how we can think about God in many different ways, and will also be looking closely at Jesus as God's gift to the world.
Homework will be sent home each week. Please encourage your child to complete and return their homework, and let me know if there are any difficulties. Could you also please encourage your child to practise their Learn by Heart facts, including 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Counting in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s is also very helpful to your child in Year 2. Details can be found on the link below.
P.E. will take place on Monday and Wednesday each week. Please make sure your child has indoor P.E. kit in school, including a pair of indoor pumps. This half term the children are developing their skills in hockey and multiskills. Please ensure all items of clothing and footwear are named.
Thank you for your continued support. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
