Welcome to Class 2
This term we are in a carnival mood in Rio de Janeiro.
We will compare the rainforest in Brazil, the creatures and people who live there with life in the United Kingdom.
In music and PE we will be looking at creating Samba rhythms and dance.
Working towards an exhibition, later this term, children will design and create carnival masks and headdresses.
In literacy we will look at poetry, non-chronological reports and myths from Brazil. After that first few weeks we will begin the Read Write Inc programme which incorporates phonics, reading and writing. This programme gives children the confidence to read aloud and to compose sentences independently.
Maths will concentrate on ordering numbers, understanding one more and one less than any number and quickly working out pairs of numbers that total 5,6,7,8,9 and 10.
PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child’s PE kit is in school as well as a water bottle.
Please support your child by listening to them read at least 5 times per week for 10 minutes. Write in their diary to say you have listened to them and they will get points towards a prize from the treasure box. They can also 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.
