English: The children will be reading the festive book, Bear That Stays Up For Christmas. They will be using adjectives to write descriptive sentences about the Bear.
Maths: Continuing with commutativity, the children will explore doubling numbers up to 20. We will use Cuisenaire rods to work out double the value of numbers.
Topic: The children will be planning and designing a shelter for a character from Bear That Stays Up For Christmas.
We will be working towards concluding the Dino Discovery topic by reviewing and learning who is the winner of Professor Bennett’s incredible competition!!
Music: We are continuing to practise Christmas songs for the singing to grown ups on December the 13th.
We hope you’ll join us at 2:30pm! 🎄
Welcome back to this exciting half term!
Our new topic is called ‘Dino Discovery.’ This is an innovative and freshly designed topic requiring imaginative minds! The highlight of our term will be our launch day! We are welcoming an actual Palaeontologist to our school. Professor Matthew Bennett has kindly agreed to work with Year Two and even involve us with his PaleoGo App!!!! The children will be using their design skills to create hybrid dinosaurs. They will also be thinking about the T-Rex and giving this dinosaur a new plume!
Writing will centre around both formal and informal sentence types. The children will be thinking about the types of words they can use when sending an email. The children will be composing questions and then actually emailing these to Professor Bennett. He has promised to email the children back his answers!
In Maths, We will be consolidating our knowledge of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The children will continue to develop their reasoning skills and solve an APE challenge each Friday.
In Science, we will be exploring the reasons why offspring have similar characteristics to one another. The children will explore how animals change over time and are indeed, still changing.
It will undoubtedly be a busy half term, especially as we count down to the Christmas sing-song. We hope that you will join us on the 13th of December for a festive gathering! As per normal, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to come and see one of us.
