Robert's Park Saltaire
Our summer topic is Beachcombers.
This term we will continue to learn about the seaside - how it is now and what it was like in the past. We will also be finding out about the different animals that live there. Everyone is looking forward to our visit to Filey on Wednesday 21st June, where hopefully we will observe some of the creatures in their natural habitats. We are hoping for a dry day!
English will focus on care with handwriting, spelling and punctuation. The children are also using adjectives, suffixes and contracted words in their writing, and trying hard to use joined up writing in their work. Please encourage your child to practise at home. We will be writing a recount of our day out in Filey, and also working on our descriptive writing of characters and settings.
In Maths we are trying hard to secure our understanding of place value, multiplication/division and time. We are thinking carefully about the methods we can use to help us find our answers quickly and accurately.
The Church is Born is our R.E. topic this half term. The children will be thinking about the early Christian Church and how we continue today to spread the Good News.
Homework will continue to 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 continue practicing 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 rounders and cricket. 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.
