CLASS 2 Spring (1) 2017

This term’s focus will be ‘Me and My World’.

We will start the term off by visiting Birches Valley in Cannock Chase. Whilst on the trip we will be den building, doing some nature art and looking at different habitats. Our English theme is ‘Amazing Authors’ and will be looking at Julia Donaldson. Therefore, whilst on the trip, we will also be following The Stick Man trail, as the first Julia Donaldson book we will cover is ‘The Stick Man’.

In science the children will be looking at animals and their habitats and will also be taking part in Forest Schools activities every Friday morning. The children will be taking part in a variety of outside practical activities throughout this term, which will link with a number of curriculum areas.

The children will be looking at features of differing environments and in particular their immediate surroundings. As a class the children will be creating a 3D model of the school grounds, which will require research, planning, investigation and making.

In maths we will be concentrating on multiplication and division, time, length and graphs. Any reinforcement of these topics at home, particularly in a real-life context, would be hugely beneficial to your child.




In this half term we will be starting a new RE mini-topic called ‘This is my faith’

In this topic we will learn all about different aspects of Hinduism (Diwali, Holi and Gods), Judaism (Hannukah and Passover) and of course Christianity through Christingle, Advent and Christmas. We will also be enjoying stories from other cultures and comparing them with stories we know well.

In maths we will be mastering addition and subtraction, doing some work on geometry and beginning multiplication. We will mainly focus on our 2, 5 and 10 times tables , but we are also looking at the 3 and 4 times tables to help us in our mental calculations. Please continue to help your children learn these tables!

Our science work is all about the weather. We will be looking at extreme weather events like hurricanes, floods and blizzards – how they happen, the effects they have on our lives and what we can do to survive them.

In ICT we will be using a range of programmes to support our learning, including researching on the internet. We are also improving our word processing skills.

We will also be swimming (until 2nd December), and continuing our sports coaching on Friday afternoons until the end of term.
