Year 2 – Mr Austin
Hello and Welcome to Baker Street's class page.
In English this half term, we will be basing our writing on Commotion in the Ocean. We will be writing different types of poetry as well as non-chronological reports.
In Maths, we will be continuing to focus on number. We will be learning about place value and how to use this to add and subtract 2 digit numbers. We will also be looking at money and the values of currency.
In Science, we will be learning about living things and their habitats. The children have generated a list of things that they want to find out and we will be looking at the differences between alive, dead and never having been alive as well as food chains and what animals need from their habitats.
Spelling- Common Exception words.
By the end of Year 2 it is excepted that all children should be able to read and spell the following words. We will do lots of practice on these words in class as well.
Times Table Rockstars
It is really important for the children to know their times tables. Here at Cherry Tree Academy we have found a fun way to learn our times table. Times Table Rockstars! Children can have their own rockstar name, they can listen to rock music as they learn their tables, even play Glastonbury tournaments! All the children have been given usernames and passwords- if your unsure please ask the class teacher. Click the link below to start rocking out!!
Homework Project – Our Scientific Minds-To be handed in Tuesday 8th January 2019.
Thank you to everyone who completed the Autumn 1 homework projects these will be used to enhance our already fantastic Library.
This half term we want you to think Scientifically. We would like the children to investigate a famous Scientist linked to any area of the subject- this could be Issac Newton, Alexander Bell, Thomas Edison, Edward Jenner, Stephen Hawkings.
The children can produce anything they like about their Scientist but below are some ideas.
We would like the children to be as creative as possible in how they would like to present their research.
Below are some places which you will be able to find information about Scientists.
