ICT games provides lots of fun, interactive English and Maths activities. Maths activities are broken down into sections such as number, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division and fractions- all of which will be great to focus on.
Many of the English games are focused upon phonics, specifically high frequency words and tricky words.
Term 1: A place like home
We are very excited to begin our very first topic... A place like home! Throughout this topic we will be learning about different countries from around the world and comparing these places to where we live. We will be focusing on beginning to learn our continents and oceans.
In English we will be focusing upon two texts ‘Grace’s Family’ and ‘Beegu.’ We are looking forward to writing different text types and become immersed in these amazing texts.
In Science we are going to be looking at living things and their habitats focusing on; polar habitats, rainforests, oceans, woodland and deserts!
We hope you have all had a restful, fun summer and can't wait to see you in Year 2!
Term 2: Horrible Histories
We have had a fantastic start to the year and can't wait to continue with our new topic... Horrible Histories! We are going to be focusing upon different eras in history such as Ancient Egypt and the Vile Victorians.
We are going to be focusing on some wonderful texts in English; Sir Charlie Stinky Socks and the Mummy's gold and A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.
We are also very excited about our Medieval dress up day on Tuesday 29th October. We can't wait for our sporting festival where we will be cheese rolling amongst other exciting sporting events!
If you have any interesting historical artefacts or objects at home we would love to see them at school or see them via photograph on Tapestry.
