Year 2 – Falcons
Teacher - Mrs Goodman
Teaching Assistants - Mrs Calvert and Mrs Wilkinson
This term our topic is Explorers!
Who is more significant, Christopher Columbus or Amelia Earhart?
In Geography, we will start by looking at where we live, continents and oceans and then in History study the explorers in more detail looking at their life and their journeys.
In Literacy, we will be using a Power of Reading text called The Lonely Beast and creating our own friend for The Beast. This will be linked to our DT topic of making puppets where children will design and make their own friend of the beast puppet.
Reading -Children need to read to an adult at least 3 times a week. Each child has a pack with their reading journal and their reading books in. These are brought in on a Friday when Mrs Calvert will aim to check the reading journals to reward stickers, read any comments made and also give children the opportunity to change their books. As well as signing in reading journals, children need to get their reading raffles signed for a chance to win a free book! Happy reading!
Homework and spellings are given out on a Thursday and are due in the following Monday.
Spellings - Spellings should be practiced every day. These will consist of a different spelling pattern each week or common exception words. Children's spellings are uploaded each week onto spelling shed. Phonics is still taught daily to help with reading and spelling.
Maths or Literacy task - A Maths or Literacy task is set weekly to reinforce a concept we have been learning in class. At the moment, your child will receive a worksheet or a booklet to complete these in. In future, some tasks will be set in Google Classrooms.
