Welcome to Class 2!
Hello! We are class 2. Miss Malkin is our class teacher and Mrs Harnwell is our teaching assistant.
Spring term 2019
Our topic this term is how did that get into my lunchbox?
In English we are writing instructions and looking at healthy recipes. Children are learning about the different features of instructions and have been focusing on time connectives and imperative verbs. We will be writing some of our own instructions and trying to follow them.
What are time connectives?
Time connectives are words or phrases which are used to tell the reader when something is happening. They are used to sequence the instructions. Examples are: first, after that, next, finally.
What are imperative verbs?
Imperative verbs are verbs (action words) which are bossy and direct. For example: cut, spread, get,roll.
In Maths we are currently working on fractions, focusing on halves and quarters. We have been finding halves and quarters of shapes and will go onto looking at finding fractions of amounts.
In our DT sessions we will be designing our own fruit kebabs then making and evaluating them to find out which fruit we liked the best. We will be using different cutting techniques to safely cut the fruit.
Listening to your child read each evening will also support their learning and development. Please also continue to support your child in learning their flashcards and spellings as these support them in developing fluency in their reading and independent writing during English. We are encouraging children to learn their 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables which is something that could also be practised at home.
PE lessons for class 2 are on Monday and Thursday. Please ensure your child has both their indoor and outdoor PE kit in school. On Monday's we will be learning a dinosaur dance! On Thursday's the children will work with a P.O.S.H coach.
