Year 2 Newsletter Summer Term 2019
Our Science Topic this term will focus on ‘materials’: We are very excited to be welcoming the Sublime Science team to our school later in the term to support the children's understanding of the usese of everyday materials and inspire their scientific minds. We will be specifically focusing on developing our investigative skills whereby children will design, carry out and evaluate their own scientific investigations.
In Maths, we are consolidating our strategies linked to addition and subtraction in order to best prepare the children as they transition in to year three and KS2. We will be specifically focusing on effective written strategies and from this enable children to apply these skills to single and multi-step problems.We will also continue to develop confidence with the 2s 5s and 10 times tables with related division facts and look more closely at the 3 and 4 times tables.
We will be continuing to focus on our Talk for Writing journey in literacy. Our core text will be ‘Pirate Mabel’ focusing on action in stories.
In Art the children will be designing finish preparing for the Art curriculum evening with learning inspired by Romero Britto. In computing we will be continuing to learn about algorithms and computational thinking and we will also be focusing on how technology helps us in our everyday lives and how we can use it to help us learn. PE days are on Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure that PE Kits are named and brought into school on Monday and taken home on Friday for washing. Black tracksuit bottoms or leggings may be worn for outdoor PE.
Our RE Topics from the Summer term will be: Why are they having a Jewish party and Why Did Jesus Teach The Lord’s Prayer As The Way To Pray?
