Welcome to Class 2A
In year 2 this term our topic is ‘Building Bridges’. We will be learning about famous bridges around the world, materials they are made from, the longest and tallest bridges and types of bridges. There will be a chance to investigate a local bridge and its surrounding area. We will be enjoying finding out facts on bridges and even constructing our own!
In English we will be looking at The Three Billy Goats Gruff and Traction Man. We are also enjoying sharing different types of books with our friends and explaining why we like them. In preparation for our SATs the children are practising lots of grammar skills at school. Please remember child has been allocated games to support this on Bugclub (www.activelearnprimary.co.uk).
In maths our main focus this half term is multiplication and division. It is important the children practise their 2, 5 and 10 times tables. The children will be working hard to solve problems in all areas of maths using these skills. We will also be setting tests on Mathletics as part of their homework.
In RE our topics are Books, Thanksgiving and Opportunities. We have been sharing our favourite books and understanding how each religion has a special book. We have created our own bible covers and we will be making our own Book of Prayers this term.
In science, we will be looking at animals including humans. We will be learning about life cycles and how animals change as they grow. We will also be looking at habitats and what makes them suitable for particular animals.
Our chosen artist for this term in Monet. We will be combining techniques learnt in art and design, design and technology and computing to create our own bridges and images in the style of Monet.
