Welcome to Class 2G!

What Can You See?
This half term children will be using ‘The Window’ by Jeannie Baker to write contrasting setting descriptions. We will then be using the story to create our own poems.
In Geography we will be learning about hot and cold places around the world.
Children will be introduced to the vocabulary below and learn how a country's climate is affected by how close it is to the equator.
We will then be applying our knowledge by making short films about a hot or cold place. Children will also be creating collages using a range of textiles.
In Maths we will be applying our knowledge to a range of problem solving activities. Children will be learning how to divide using a number line.
Children need to know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables as well as the following facts by the end of Year 2. Please practise them regularly.
60 seconds = 1 minute
60 minutes = 1 hour
24 hours = 1 day
7 days = 1 week
52 weeks = 1 year
365 days = 1 year
366 days = 1 leap year
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!
