Mrs Godier, Mrs King and Miss Gerada
This half term in English our writing will be based on the story of Handa's surprise. We will be retelling the story, adapting it and then writing our own version. As well as this, we will be writing instructions linked to the fruit that Handa finds in the story.
In maths we will be learning to recognise the value of digits within numbers. We will be using this knowledge to solve problems involving place value. We will also be developing strategies and solving problems involving addition and subtraction.
In Science we will be comparing different materials and how they can change. As well as this we will be developing our skills such as asking scientific questions, using scientific equipment and carrying out comparative tests.
This term our Creative Links theme is local history. We will be learning about Jane Taylor, the author of ‘Twinkle, Twinkle little star’ as well as looking at how toys have changed over time. From this learning we will be creating a toy shop through time.
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 be practising these words in class.
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 tournaments! All the children have been given usernames and passwords- if you are unsure please ask the class teacher. Click the link below to start rocking out!!
