Welcome to a new school year in class 2! We have had an amazing start in our new class and settled in wonderfully! This term our topic is Sun, Sea and Sand. To start our topic we have been on a fantastic visit to Cleethorpes where the weather was definitely on our side! We loved walking along the promenade, hunting for unusual shells and digging sand castles. A perfect start to the new school year!
In maths we will be extending our knowledge of number and place value. In Literacy we have been learning about recounts and wrote postcards to Mrs Peart to tell her about our holidays. Our focus text that we will be learning through is called the storm whale. We will use this to cover a wide range of writing genres but also to extend our learning in other subjects areas. We will be finding out about the seas and oceans, making stormy weather music and thinking about colour and seascapes in art. We have started learning about materials and their properties. We will use this knowledge to plan an investigation and build a model in DT.
We have a jam packed half term with Harvest just around the corner. We are looking forward to practising for our year 2 assembly very soon!
Keep an eye out for pictures from our visit and other areas of learning very soon....
