Welcome to 2C
Spring Term A
Our connector is...
This will focus on London buses and we will be looking at how these have changed throughout history and producing a timeline to show the changes. Our learning experience will include a visit to the London Transport Museum on 22nd January, 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.
During our English lessons, we will be reading Mr Gumpy’s Motor Car.
Children will be writing setting and character descriptions as well as retelling part of this story. Our focus will be on using the past and present tenses correctly.
In science we will be learning about the importance for humans of exercise, eating the right amounts of different types of food as well as hygiene. Our focus in computing will be identifying the benefits of technology, including finding information, creating and communicating. In design and technology we will be exploring how wheels and axles are used in products.
We will be looking at division during our maths lessons and how it relates to multiplication. Children will be expected to learn the division facts related to the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Later on in the half term, we will be looking at statistics; this will include simple pictograms, tally charts and bar charts.
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.
