Welcome to 2C
Autumn Term B
Our connector is...
Here and There
This will focus on comparing our local environment to the Scottish Islands.
Children will learn about the points of a compass and how to describe where places are in relation to each other, within the United Kingdom. We will be using maps, atlases and computer mapping to locate countries and to describe their human and physical features. Children will then use this knowledge to write an information text.
Our English lessons will be based on the Katie Morag stories which depict life in a remote Scottish island. Children will be writing an informal letter, using subordination and applying their knowledge of question marks.
In science we will be finding out about and describing the basic needs of animals, including humans, for survival. We will also be looking at the life cycle of different animals. In art we will be inspired by the work of illustrator Raymond Briggs as we learn how to create different tones in our drawings using light and dark. We will also be learning how to include pattern and texture. In computing children will learn how they can keep safe online.
In maths children will be consolidating their understanding of addition and subtraction and using this to solve problems. We will be exploring money and how different combinations of coins can be used to make a particular value. We will also be developing our understanding of multiplication. Daily arithmetic sessions will focus on x2 multiplication facts, odd and even numbers and counting in steps of 2, 3, 5 and 10 from 0.
Tuesday 14th November at 9am.
We would love to see you there!
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.
