Topic: Fire and Gunpowder
This half term we will be learning about two historical events, the Gunpowder Plot and the Great Fire of London.
This term we will be both learning about different forms of poetry, such as the calligram, a poem in the shape of its subject, before moving on to explanation texts. This last section in particular will tie into our topic work as we work to explain how the Great fire of London started, and why it couldn't happen today.
This term in Maths our topic is recapping areas we have already looked at in detail in Year One; mainly focusing on Place Value and addition and Subtraction. As we move towards Christmas, we are beginning to learn about division and multiplication through the use of counters and by drawing diagrams.
Our focus this year is to learn the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times table and if you could practise these at home that would be great. We have just learnt the 3 times table too and have been using some great YouTube videos by Percy Parker to help us. You might want to take a look at these at home to help with practising these times tables. We are also using the conker maths website which has a lot great resources to support your child in developing their number skills. http://www.conkermaths.org/cmweb.nsf/products/conkerkirfs.html
Our topic this term is 'Materials and their Properties'. We will be learning about different materials and identifying which are approrpriate choices for a range of purposes.
This term we are looking at Symbols and Incarnation and Christmas. We will be learning about these stories and thinking about their importance to people today. Mr Graham will be helping us with our R.E. learning every Tuesday afternoon.
This term our PE slot is on a Monday morning and we are looking at Dance. Please can children have their P.E. kits in school all week, just in case the hall timetable changes.
