Muck, Mess and Mixtures is our new topic in Year 2.
We will be exploring messy mixtures and describing what they feel like. We will also be exploring different mixtures through creating and following recipes.
English will focus on George's Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl. The children will make good use of exciting adjectives in designing their own disgusting recipes, and in describing George and his dreadful Grandma!. Grammar, spelling and punctuation, along with daily phonics lessons, will continue to feature largely in our English lessons.
Our new R.E. topic is The Mystery of God. We will be thinking about mysteries - some of those amazing and wonderful things that we cannot find the answers to. We will learn that we can think about God in different ways and we will develop our understanding of Jesus, God's special gift to the world.
In Maths we continue to develop our knowledge of numbers and different ways of adding and subtracting. We will be learning about the value of coins and exploring ways of making the same amount using different coins. We will also be moving onto multiplication so...we all need to learn our 2, 5 and 10 times tables and practise counting in 3s!
In Science we are still learning about the uses of everyday materials. We will be investigating how materials change, for example when they are melted or mixed with water. We will also be thinking about the importance of recycling and we will look at the lives of some famous people who invented new and very useful materials.
Art and D.T. will also involve messy mixtures - we will be cooking and using art techniques such as milk marbling and sponging.
Music and drama will be an important focus as we begin preparations for our Christmas Nativity performance.
Spellings, reading books and homework will be sent home each week. Please support and encourage your child in completing and returning any tasks set, and let me know if there are any problems.
Thank you for your continued support. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
