Dear Parent/ Carer,
I would like to take this opportunity to let you know what topics Class 2 will be covering throughout the Spring Term 2018.
Literacy: In literacy the children will be looking at Traditional Tales, so any books they would like to bring in to share with the class would be wonderful. The non-fiction this term is Information Texts, and they will be writing about the weather, linking it to their science topic.
Numeracy: This term the children will be learning about multiplication and division and how they are connected. They will continue to learn the four basic operations and use these for problem solving.
Science: This term the children will learn about Animals Including Humans and will look at common features in all animals, and differences between others. They will then study the weather.
Design Technology / Art /Cookery: The children will be working with different textures and textiles to create a puppet, and investigating different materials and looking specifically at the work of Eric Carle. In cookery they will look at different types of bread and make hot cross buns.
Music: This term the children will be looking at the symbols used in music to denote dynamics, tempo and articulation while looking at music from around the world (Africa). They will continue to analyse music on a creative and musical level.
PE: The children will learn the skills for gymnastics for the first half of the term, and after the half-term break they will be doing Invasion Games. Please remember to remove any earrings on Monday and Tuesday and please, also to include a pair of trainers, jogging bottoms and a P.E. top as they will be outside on the field when the weather allows after the half term break.
PSHE: This term is about Relationships the children will learn the importance of forming relationships at home, in school and in the wider community.
RE: This term is dedicated to learning about Christianity. The children will learn about the Easter story.
Geography/History The first half term is dedicated to learning about significant individuals from the past and we will be looking at the work and life of Florence Nightingale. In geography after the half term we will be linking our geography to our science and looking more closely at the weather.
Computing: The children will learn about internet safety. They will also learn about algorithms and create and predict simple programs.
I would like to let you know that there will be an opportunity for you to look at the work on display in Class 2 on Thursday 15th March. You are welcome to look around while the children are in assembly, from 3.00pm to 3.15pm. Please try and come to see all the wonderful work they have done.
If you have any questions about any of the topics please do not hesitate to come and see me.
Yours sincerely
Miss Pennock.
