Welcome to Class 2A
In year 2 this term our topic is ‘Who keeps us safe?’. We will be learning about fire safety and the history of the Fire Service. This will help us to understand the legacy of the Great Fire of London.
Within this topic we will be investigating how this event has changed our history. As well as exploring the location of London and its geographical features.
In English we are continuing the Read, write, inc programme. We will also be reading The Three Little Pigs and we look forward to writing newspaper reports and diaries about ‘The Great Fire of London’.
We are using numicon resources to help understand place value, addition and subtraction. Every Friday we will be completing maths problems to help develop our reasoning skills.
In RE we have been learning about New Beginnings that we have all had and how they made us feel. We have also been learning how God created the world and how we should thank God for all the things He has given us. We have enjoyed creating pictures of God’s world. We are looking forward to the Harvest Festival.
In art and design we will be colour mixing and creating tints and washes using paint. We will be taking inspiration from a famous artist and recreating artwork in that style.
In science we will be looking at materials and their properties. We will be testing different materials and their suitability for different uses.
