Welcome to Year 2 Ivy Class
Our topic is SURVIVAL.
As scientists we will learn what animals need to survive and how humans can keep themselves healthy and well as we stay active and make healthy choices. We will prepare healthy snacks. In PSHE lessons we will learn how to keep our selves safe when we are out and about and on line safety and how our family and friends can help to keep us safe and well.
As Historians we will be learning about the Great Fire of London. We may be surprised at how many people survived the fire.
In Geography we will be creating maps and learning simple compass directions.
We will study nature in art by exploring the work of Dietmaar Voorwold and Andy Goldsworthy and our art work will be inspired by our visit to The Deep.
Our Christian value this term is Self-sacrifice. We will explore this Christian value by thinking about giving. What can we give? How can we help each other? What can we share? We will always keep this value in mind as we enjoy our time at school this term. In RE lessons we will read stories from the Jewish Torah and the Bible and think about how these stories help Christians and Jews all over the world to live their lives.
We will begin the term by reading traditional tales and using them as a stimulus for our own story writing.
In maths lessons our focus is money – finding the total of coins and notes, working out ways to pay and finding the change. We will learn how to solve multiplication and division problems. We will learn and use the 2, 3, 5 and 10 timetables.
Homework is sent out every Friday. Please try to do your homework. It will support you learning by reinforcing what we have been doing in class. Please try to read every day. Remember that you can exchange books in our class library every week. www.ictgames.com is a great website to use this term to practise all the skills we have learned in Maths.
We are always delighted to see the extra homework you do inspired by our class learning. Please don’t stop bringing it in to share with us.
