Welcome to 2C
Spring Term A
Our connector is...
What is a vehicle?
How many can you name?
What are they used for?
We will be learning about different types of vehicles but the main focus will be on London buses and how they have changed over time. We will be creating a timeline to show these changes and producing chronological reports to describe and explain features the different types of buses had. Our learning experience will include a visit to the London Transport Museum where children will have the opportunity to handle special objects from the museum's collection as they investigate how London buses are made and why they have changed over time. They will also think about the future and what buses might look like then. Please note this visit will take place after half term.
We will be reading Mr Majeika and learning how to write from different viewpoints. Children will also learn how to use adverbs and continue to be encouraged to revise, correct and amend their writing.
In computing children will be using a branching database to sort vehicles and 2investigate to add information about them. Our P.E. this half term will be creating a life-cycle dance and in R.E. we will be looking at how Christians journey through life. In art we will be looking a how to create texture by overlapping and overlaying different fabrics and threads.
In maths our focus will be on telling the time using an analogue clock. Children are expected to be able to tell the time to the nearest 5 minutes. Please practise this important life skill at home with your child. There will be work on measurement which will involve reading different types of scales and we will also be learning the mathematical language needed to describe position, direction and movement.
Library books will be changed every Tuesday. We will change six children's reading books each day. Your child will be told which day they are changing their book. However, it is very important that your child brings their reading book to school every day. Should your child need to change their book again during the week, we will of course do so.
Please read with your child and ask them questions about what they have read. Please ask if you have any questions about reading and how you can support your child at home.
This half term PE will be on a Friday. Please ensure that your child has a full PE kit in school, so that they can participate. Homework will be handed out every Friday to be completed and returned no later than the following Wednesday. Please ensure your child completes their homework. Your support is greatly appreciated.
If at anytime there is anything you wish to discuss, please do speak to me.
