Welcome back to Class 2
This term our topic is beachcombers.
We will look at the creatures that live in the sea and create some of these in clay. Children will learn about how the creatures live, what they eat, considering food chains and what they need to survive.
In geography we will look at coastlines and understand why Great Britain is an island. Children will be encouraged to think about how to look after our beaches and the effect pollution can have on sea creatures.
We will complete sketches of sea shells and make collages. In science investigations will be done into floating and sinking and being able to sort by different criterion.
Maths will focus on problem solving using measures, multiplication and division. As a school we are encouraging children to reason more in maths, to help them to stick at solving problems and using trial and error to work out answers giving explanations as to why some thing is either correct or not.
PE days are still Tuesday and Wednesday.
Please support your child by listening to them read regularly. They can read using the Active Learn site, if you write this in their diary they will be gaining points to go in the treasure box.
The Active Learn site also has maths games for children to play. It is free to use. www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/ if you need a code please ask.
