We will continue to work in small groups for English. Most groups will read at least one new story every week and complete writing tasks about the story. Some children will start to spend more time developing their writing skills. The children will think about making their writing more interesting by using adjectives, using longer sentences and a wider range of punctuation!.



This term we will be developing our knowledge of place value by working with numbers to 50. We will continue to prac-tise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s as we count amounts of money. We will start to learn about multiplication and division and practise our addition and subtraction skills. Practical activities will help us to develop our
understanding of weight, length and shape..


Religious Education 

Our first topic this term is ‘The Good News’. We will be learning about how Jesus chose his disciples and some of the stories that tell us how Jesus helped people (The feeding of the 5000 and The curing of the paralysed man). After half term our theme will be ‘Following Jesus’.


Science .  

Our topic this term is ‘Materials’. We will be testing out materials to see which are best for doing certain jobs (and which aren’t so good). We will also use scientific words when describing materials, for example rough, smooth, transparent.



Later this term we will start to learn about the different countries that make up the United Kingdom. We will also find out their capital cities. We will use atlases as part of this learning to develop our maps skills.



We will be learning about ‘The Great Fire of London’ in our history lessons. We will find out where and when it happened and how it started. We will think about why the fire lasted so long and destroyed so much. We will also learn a little about Samuel Pepys and the diary he wrote.



After half term we will start to work with clay and experiment using it to make a pinch pot and a clay tile. We will
practise joining pieces of clay together to make a simple house.



This term we will be designing and making a healthy wrap. This builds on our healthy eating learning from last term. We will
research combinations of foods we like and use this information when planning our wraps.



We start this term by learning how to make Beebot robots move. We will write simple sequences of instructions and correct our mistakes when things do not go to plan..



Class 2’s PE days this term are Monday and Tuesday. Children come to school in their PE kit and they can wear their trainers. Pumps or school shoes need to be in school for indoor wear.



This term we are thinking about the things we have in common with our friends and the ways we are different. We will also consider how we can all work co-operatively and share appropriately. We will think about rules and caring for
others and the environment..



Children in Class 2 should read some of their reading book out loud to an adult every night. This is recorded in the green reading record.
The book and record must come to school every day to be checked or
The days the books are changed will vary depending on which reading group your child is in. The books should be re-read to develop a good pace and fluency.



Library visit

Class 2 had a wonderful visit to Barnoldswick library . They listened to some stories and made some cards.
