Mr Austin, Miss Riley and Miss Wood
English - This half term in English our writing will be based on the story of The Little Red Hen. We will be retelling the story, adapting it and then writing our own version. As well as this, we will be writing diary entries linked to our Creative Links work.
Maths - In maths we will be continuing to work with number and learning practical strategies to successfully multiply and divide. We will also be doing work with 2D shapes investigating their properties, sorting them and identifying lines of symmetry.
Science - Our science work will continue to be focused on Living Things and Their Habitats. We will be identifying the seven life processes and classifying things based on their characteristics. we will also, plan, conduct and evaluate a fair test based on our learning as the weather improves.
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 practise 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.
