Class 2 2017 - 2018

Miss Daniels

Welcome to Class 2! :)

Within the Summer term we are looking at the topic 'Africa.' We will be finding out about the rainbow nation - South Africa - and exploring its history with a specific focus on Nelson Mandela. We will also be looking at the geography of Africa and the wildlife that you might find there.

Within English we will be focussing on stories by significant authors, delving into the wonderful world of Roald Dahl and writing our own stories inspired by him. Spelling, punctuation and grammar is embedded throughout all of our English work, and across all curriculum areas. We are also continuing our Read Write Inc Phonics lessons and guided reading sessions, working hard towards our SATs tests.

Throughout the Summer term we are continuing to develop our skills in number and place value within our Maths lessons, recognising the value of digits and developing our understanding of addition and subtraction, as well as multiplication and division. We will be looking at data handling, creating charts and tables as well as interpreting data from graphs. We will also continue to have our weekly times tables test - we love to challenge ourselves and see our progress each week!



In Science, we are starting the term with our whole school Science week focusing on 'growing' - looking at both animals and plants! We will be exploring how plants grow and finding out what conditions are best for maximum growth. 

CLASS TIMETABLE:
