Welcome to 2C
Summer Term B
Our connector is...
What can you see?
This half term we will be writing stories with flashbacks using the 'The Window' by Jeannie Baker as a stimulus. Children will continue to proofread their writing and be encouraged to check grammar, punctuation and spelling. We will also be using lists, labels and captions linked to our work in geography which is about hot and cold places.
In computing children will be using 'Movie Maker' to create short films. Our P.E. this half term will focus on developing athletic skills and revisiting what we need to keep healthy. In art we will be experimenting with colour and learning how to mix different tones. Our science will focus on how solid objects made from some materials change when a force is applied to them.
In maths we will be exploring how the bar model can help solve missing number calculations. We will also be learning how to make appropriate estimates and check answers. We will be using a number line to divide and also be revisiting money with a focus on finding change.
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.
