Welcome to Class 2!

 

Literacy

In English this half-term, children will focus on Fantasy stories and look at Pirates and all things seaside. We will also study Non- fiction and information texts through our topic on chicks and Christopher Columbus.

This half term in writing the children will be putting everything they have learnt into practice ready for their SATs.

Please help your child to learn their spellings each week and aim to read for 10 minutes every day together.

Encourage your children to change their home-school reading book regularly.

It would be useful for your children to do some research on chicks.

Science

In Science, this half term, children will learn about plants – Growth and their needs. We will also learn about the life cycle of a chick.

We will be carrying out lots of investigations regarding these topics.

Help your child research their Science topics using the internet and non-fiction texts.

Ask your children what they have learned in Science. 

Computing

It can be hard to keep track of what your child is doing on social networks, apps and games. ... and teach your children to be Share Aware because, just like in real life, children need your help to stay safe online.

If you have a computer and the internet at home help your child to use it safely. 

Phonics

Children will:

 practice learning their sounds and will do activities to help them practise the sounds and words they will encounter in their stories including new vocabulary and tricky, non-decodable words. They will be asked questions to develop their comprehension.

History

In this unit the children will learn about Christopher Columbus as a significant individual. This will include biographical details, videos and activities.

Help your child to research Christopher Columbus.

Other information

This half term we will be completing our SATs test therefore for your child to achieve the grade they deserve they need to be in school every day and on time and all homework needs to be completed.

The Tests are nothing to worry about as we have been working hard all year towards these.

Homework

Homework will be sent home on Thursdays and should be returned completed by Monday of the following week. It will link with topics taught in the classroom. There will also be spellings to learn and Mental Maths questions for a test. 

It is really important homework is completed as this will help revision before the SATs.

Help your child to learn their spellings each week and mental maths when given.

Reading

Reading: All the children will have a guided reading session twice a week where they will read in a book group. They will also take a book home where they can practise reading. Reading at home is very important as it can build on children’s vocabulary and improve their understanding. We encourage you to listen to your child read at least three times a week and record any comments in their reading record book. Please make sure their book bags are returned every day.
