Welcome to Class 2!
Hello! We are class 2. Miss Malkin is our class teacher and Mrs Crawshawe and Mrs Harnwell are our teaching assistants.
Autumn term 2018
We are very excited to start our new topic on dinosaurs!
In English we will be focusing on the story Harry and his bucketful of dinosaurs. To begin the year we will focus on learning the story through story mapping and retelling the story in small groups. We will move onto working on sentence structure and year 2 will work on including adjectives and noun phrases. We will plan and rewrite the story changing it slightly to make it our own.
In Maths we will focus on number and place value. We will practise counting forwards and backwards starting from 0 as well as any given number. Year 2 will focus on counting to 100 and beyond. Children will be working on their number formation and beginning to write numbers in words as well as numerals.
In History we will be learning about Mary Anning and her discovery of fossils. We will be discussing what fossils are as well as learning about when dinosaurs were alive and when they became extinct.
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.
