Welcome back everyone, we have now done 100 days in Class 2!

Spring Term 2 - 2024

Mrs Beckingham, Mrs Clarke & Mrs Button

Another exciting term awaits us, what will we get up to?

English sessions we will be looking at a high quality picture book.  We read this at intervals so don't want to reveal the story fully as we "unwrap" this lovely text together during our lessons.

Maths sessions will focus on fractions, ratio and proportion.  Mental multiplication and division, measure, statistics, number and place value, problem solving, reasoning and algebra. So a very busy term for maths.  Whilst, also revisiting the four basic operations of addition, subtraction, division and multiplication each day.

We will focus on Geography this term and will be looking at the question,  "How does the Geography of Kampong Ayer compare with the geography of where I live?"  We will be identifying and describing the location of where we live in the UK while comparing our own location with the location of Kampong Ayer.  Using maps at various scales and online websites.   

Our Science topic is "Ready steady grow!"  The Science Knowledge Organiser contains more information in the link below.

 Our RE topics explore Thanksgiving and Opportunities.  Looking at different ways to say thank you while being thoughtful for life, for people and gifts.

Art we will finish our sculpture and 3D making our own clay house tile with the influence of Rachel Whiteread.  Then we will move on to felt making (see knowledge organiser).  Music we focus on dymanics, timbre, tempo and motifs exploring the theme of space. In Computing we focus on spreadsheets.

Homework will be sent out on a Thursday and is due to be handed in the following Wednesday.Each week your child will bring home a homework book which will contain a worksheet or instructions for which website to visit to complete the homework. Please keep listening to your child read it is so important that your child reads daily (Reading is a passport to countless adventures).  Remember also times tables (x2, x5 and x10s) keep playing TT Rockstars.

P.E. for Class 2 will be Tuesday (Dance) and Friday (Hockey) and the children should come into school wearing their P.E. kits on these days. 

Please check Google Classroom, Instagram and the class page regularly for activities, updates and photographs of what we have been getting up to in class.

Our core aim in Class 2 is that your child's time in school is enjoyable, exciting and full of enriching learning experiences with a smile on their faces :)

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask at the school door or email admin@stjeromes.net

We can't wait to see you all fresh and ready to learn.
