Welcome to Class 5!
The children in Class 5 have been working their socks off since they came back to school after the Christmas holidays!
Our swimming lessons, on a Tuesday afternoon, are going really well and children are all gaining confidence with some tricky skills.
We have been using ‘Times Table Rock Stars’ in class and at home to improve our knowledge of the 2, 5, 10 and 3 times tables in a fun and engaging way. The children absolutely love it and have been spending their well-earned virtual coins on some funky Rock Star equipment!
Lots of children can now join their writing and many children have a pen licence. The presentation of work in Year 2 is fantastic!
This term our topic is ‘Around the world- Wynyard Travel Agency’ and we will be learning about life in Africa and Antarctica, comparing lots of different aspects of life in those places. We will be producing travel brochures and leaflets as well as non-chronological reports. In history, we will be learning about homes of the past and how life has changed since Victorian times.
We will be looking at statistics in Maths in relation to hot and cold places around the world.
Very soon, we will be working with a specialist on a Lego Robotics project, during which we will program Lego structures to move and produce sound and light.
As you can see, we have a very busy term ahead in Year 2 with lots of exciting things planned!
