Welcome to 2C
Summer Term A
Our connector is...
What do you know about dinosaurs?
What would you like to find out?
We will be learning about dinosaurs and other animals that have become extinct like the plesiosaur.
We will be looking at how dinosaurs are depicted in fiction and creating an alphabetical text. We will also be looking at a simple prehistoric timeline and finding out why why animals become extinct. In art we will be making 3D scenes, using a variety of materials, that depict a prehistoric environment. In computing we will be creating book trailers for our own stories. This will involve combining video clips and images with text to present ideas.
We will be visiting the Natural History Museum on Thursday 15th June to enhance our learning. This will include a Super Stegosaurus workshop where we will use replica fossils to identify the key features of a Stegosaurus and learn about its body shape and find out how scientists piece together fossil finds.

In maths we will continue to develop our problem solving and reasoning skills, using all four operations. By the end of the year we will have used a range of strategies to help us solve problems and understand that there are different approaches we can take. There will be a focus on telling the time to the nearest 5 minutes. Please continue to practise the 2, 5 and 10 times tables and learn the related division facts. If you already know these start learning the 3 and 4 times tables.
Reading books and library books will be changed weekly. Please read with your child and ask them questions about what they have read. Just ask if you would like your child to have another book or if you have any questions about reading and how you can support your child at home.
This half term our PE is on Thursday. 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.
If at anytime there is anything you wish to discuss, please do speak to me.
