Hello and welcome to Year 2!
29th April 2019
This half term the children will write their own story based on Stone Soup.
We will spend the next four weeks recapping methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. All children have log in details to the Rockstars website where they can earn coins by answering times tables questions. If you have lost your log in details, please let me know.
Our new topic is Pirates! Our new topic is Pirates! We will be finding out about famous pirates including Blackbeard, Anne Bonney and William Kidd and will learn about what life was like on board a pirate ship. We will also be making and following treasure maps and pirate hats.
In science this half term we will be exploring everyday materials. We will begin by classifying materials into man-made and natural then we will explore why they are suitable to use on a day to day basis. We will finish the topic by discussing the problem of plastic pollution in the environment and the advantages of recycling.
Our PE day is Monday. In PE will be practising throwing, catching, hitting and kicking skills through multi-skills games. Although we will use pumps for indoor PE sessions, trainers are advisable for outdoor PE.
Every Wednesday Year 2 and Year 4 will take part in forest school activities. To give the children more time outside forest school leaders will send them home in their forest school clothes. Please ensure appropriate clothing and footwear comes back into school the next day. We will be going outside whatever the weather!
