Spring Term 4 Elm Class newsletter

Literacy: This term in Literacy we are looking at skills needed to write our own story. We are using the story of Paddington as our base and working with it. We will be writing postcards to Aunt Judy, writing character and setting descriptions.

Whilst doing all of this we will be refining our grammar skills and using new ones. We are going to start by developing the use of different tenses before going on to look at editing our work using the skills we have already learnt.

Maths: In maths. We are then going to focusing on learning about time, 3D shapes and their properties and fractions. We will also be practising our methods to solve the 4 main calculation methods and then use these in a variety of ways, including problem solving

As we are leading into May we will also start to revisit a lot of our learning and make sure that we have got a full understanding of it.

Topic: Our topic this term is Paddington! We are going to be looking at maps and where we travel. We will be looking at how they work, what skills we need to use them and creating our own map. We will be going on a journey from Benenden to Tenterden plotting a map along the way.

Science: This term we are dipping into our last 3 units; Animals and their Habitats, Animals including humans and Plants. We are looking at how the outside is changing and we will be planting plants to watch them grow.

Art : This term we are focusing going to be looking at weaving and hopefully creating our very own masterpiece!

P.E: P.E. is still on a Wednesday with Miss Killick and a Friday with Miss Reed. We will be outside a lot now the weather is changing so please make sure they have warm P.E. kit and outdoor shoes. Any earrings need to be taped up on the day of P.E. please.

SATs: There is a meeting regarding SATs on Wednesday 13th March in Oak Class. This will be from 2.45-3.00 just a quick meeting to let you know how we deal with them in year 2.
