Welcome to class 2G!
This term our connector is 'The Incredibles'.
This connector will be filled with lots of exciting activities that will help stimulate the children's learning. We will begin by reading 'Super Sue' and use this to consider what makes us super. Children will also read 'Eliot Jones Midnight Superhero', retelling the story using a range of interesting adjectives and exploring how to use exclamation marks effectively.
Children will be learning about the properties of different materials. This will include carrying out several investigations. We will be using this knowledge to design and make a superhero mask.
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 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.
Daily arithmetic sessions will focus on counting in 2s, 3s and 5s from 0 and counting in 10s from any number. Within maths lessons, children will be focusing on place value, addition and subtraction.
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 Tuesday. Please ensure that your child has a full PE kit, 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!
