This will focus on London buses and we will be looking at how these have changed throughout history and producing a timeline to show the changes. O
During our English lessons, we will be reading Mr Gumpy’s Motor Car.
Children will be writing setting and character descriptions as well as retelling part of this story. Our focus will be on using the past and present tenses correctly.
In Science we will be learning about the importance for humans of exercise, eating the right amounts of different types of food as well as hygiene. Our focus in computing will be identifying the benefits of technology, including finding information, creating and communicating. In design and technology we will be exploring how wheels and axles are used in products.
We will be looking at division during our maths lessons and how it relates to multiplication. Children will be expected to learn the division facts related to the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Later on in the half term, we will be looking at statistics; this will include simple pictograms, tally charts and bar charts.
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!
