Welcome to 2C
Summer Term A
Our connector is...
A Walk on the Wild Side
Have you walked in the woods before?
Did you see any of these animals?
Why do you think they live in the woods?
We will be learning about where animals live and what they need to survive in their natural habitats. Our focus will be on animals that live in woodland.
We will be reading The Gruffalo and using this to inspire our creative writing, which will include character descriptions. We will also be finding out about the different types of animals that inhabit the woods and use this information to write a non-chronological report. Did you know that the fox is a member of the dog family? A male fox is called a dog and a female fox is called a vixen. There are many more interesting facts for you to discover.
We will be learning about food chains and creating a textured picture of a woodland scene using different materials and techniques. In computing we will be using data logger to collect environmental information and use graphs to represent the information collected.
In maths we will revisiting fractions, addition and subtraction, place value and the properties of 2D and 3D shape. There will also 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. Children will continue to develop their reasoning and problem solving skills using all four operations.
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 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.
If at anytime there is anything you wish to discuss, please do speak to me.
