LORDSHIP LANE PRIMARY SCHOOL

A Love of Learning and the Perseverance to Succeed (LLPS)

2G

Welcome to Class 2G!

 

This term our connector is 'The Incredibles'

 

This half term we will be learning about superheroes. What is a superhero? How many can you name?  We will be reading the story of Eliot Jones: Midnight Superhero and retelling part of this in our own words. Our grammar focus will be on using capital letters and full stops consistently and correctly. In Design and Technology we will be making a superhero glove puppet and writing instructions for others to follow. At the end of this topic, we will have a superhero morning.  More details will follow.  

 

Our Science topic will explore how everyday materials are used. This will involve sorting and comparing different materials and thinking about why materials are used for a specific purpose.

 

In Maths lessons, the focus will be on number.  This will involve recognising the value of each digit in a 2-digit number and solving problems. We will be using jottings to add and subtract numbers. Arithmetic will focus on counting in 2s, 5s and 10s and we will be starting to learn the 2 times table.  

 

During computing sessions, children will be using 2Paint software to create a superhero scene.  Children will also learn how to save and open files.  

 

Library books and reading books are changed weekly. Please make sure your child has these books in school every day.  Please make it a habit to read with your child daily and to ask them open-ended questions such as 'why do you think...?' so that your child can really elaborate on their answer and you can also see how much your child has understood the text. 
 

There are lots of ways of supporting your child in maths.  Below are a few examples:

·Children can count anything: sweets, cars, trees, pennies, …  Encourage them to count objects wherever they are! 

·Give them mini tasks at the supermarket e.g. putting six carrots in a bag; 3 tins in the basket; …

·Look at the pattern of house numbers as you walk along.  Are they odd or even?  What number will be next?

 

We have found that children who have the opportunity to practise their learning at home, make the most significant progress.

 

This term, our PE session is on a Monday.  Please ensure that your child has a full PE kit, including tracksuit bottoms, t-shirt, jumper and a change of shoes, so that your child can participate. 

 

Homework will go out on a Friday and we will expect it to be in by Wednesday.

 

Looking forward to an action packed, fun term in 2G!

Miss Graham
