This half term in Autumn 1 our exciting topic is Land Ahoy!
During this topic we will be meeting our new Pirate friend Pirate Pete. We will be doing lots of description work using expanded noun phrases and writing in full sentences. We will also be researching and learning lots about Captain James Cook, creating information pages filled with lots of exciting facts. What an exciting topic!
In SCIENCE we will be learning all about different materials, looking at their uses and their properties. We will also be thinking about and investigating materials that float and sink and creating our own boats, making a fair test.
In Maths this half term we are really focusing on 2 digit numbers, looking at how many tens and how many ones are in a number and partitioning. We will then be looking at addition and subtraction as well as focusing on counting in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s.
In Topic work we will continue to look at Captain James Cook as well as other famous people such as Grace Darling. We are very excited to study all about The Titanic and discover why and how the ship actually sunk and the different people who would have been on board the ship.
This half term we will be the reading story 'The Night Pirates' by Peter Harris. Have a listen to the story yourselves ...
On WEDNESDAY 17th OCTOBER we are off to LIVERPOOL MARITIME MUSEUM! During this day we will get the chance to have a look around the museum and we can not wait to see the exhibition of The Titanic as we have been learning all about it.
REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR PACKED LUNCH!
What have 2M been up to?
OUR GOLDEN CHILD
In St Luke's we believe it is very important to be in school every day. This way you will not miss out on any learning as we build up to our Year 2 SATs. In 2M we really strive to win the weekly attendance draw during celebration worship. We also have a treat in class every Friday when Mrs Martindale chooses 5 names at random from those who have been in every day and they win a prize from the prize box.
YOU HAVE GOT TO BE IN IT TO WIN IT
Here are some dates to remember about Year 2 ...
READING BOOKS - changed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday or when your child has quizzed. PLEASE ensure your child has read at home and that the reading record book has been signed If your child is finding the story easy, please ask them lots of comprehension questions to ensure they also understand the book they are reading. Questions can include:
PE - PE will take place at least once a week. PLEASE ensure your child has the full PE kit (WHITE T-SHIRT, BLACK SHORTS, BLACK PUMPS) in every week for the whole half term, we will send them home at the end of each half term to be washed.
HOMEWORK - Homework will be issued once every half term. This will consist of a grid that contains lots of different activities helping to reinforce the learning taking place that half term. The ring bound sketch books are sturdy enough to fill with all your childrens wonderful work and this can then be handed back to Mrs Martindale during the last week before the half term holidays. House points and prizes can be won and certificates will go out to those who have really tried hard and put in lots of effort
SPELLINGS - Spellings will be handed out every Monday to be practised throughout the week at home in preparation for a spelling test on Friday.
There are lots of different websites that we use in school to support your child's learning. These websites can be accessed at home. Their username and passwords are stuck in the front cover of their homework books. Please try and access the websites with your child as much as you can. It would be very beneficial if your child completed the activities on their own or with the correct support.
Please see the links below to access the different websites that will be useful to your child.
