This Half Term...
This half term topic is Superheros.
We will be learning about materials in science. The properties of materials and the best materials to use for certain objects.
In PSHE in will be looking at problems and learning how to solve them.
Our History topic is the life of Christopher Columbus.
PE is on a Monday /Wednesday for Burningham Class and a Monday/Thursday for Sendak class.
Please make sure your child has their PE kit with them. This includes plain jogging bottoms or shorts, a plain t-shirt or long sleeved top and trainers or pumps. Many of the PE lessons will be outside and it will be difficult for your child to be warm and comfortable and also move about safely without the proper PE kit.
Other things you need:
Indoor shoes are more important than ever in this wet weather - the children wear the shoes they come to school in when outside and their indoor footwear (pumps, slippers, other shoes or something else!) when around school. This protects carpets and gives their feet a chance to dry if their shoes are wet.
A water bottle - having a drink when thirsty is vital for health and learning, whatever the time of year.
Please remember that we are a HEALTHY SCHOOL and therefore children should not be brining in unhealthy snacks such as chocolate, cake or sweets even for birthday treats. Only healthy treats thank you (without nuts).
Here are the maths guidance for ways of calculating in maths in Year 2:
