During the autumn term we will be exploring the history of toys. We will sort toys between old and new and identify similarities and differences between them. We will also investigate the materials that they are made from and discuss how this has changed over time. 

Science

In science we will be exploring materials. We will start by looking at different objects and identifying what materials they are made from and why. We will look at the properties of different materials and why they are only suitable for certain objects. 

Art

In term 2 we will learn about the artist Seurat. We will begin by exploring his artwork and experimenting his style in our sketchbooks. We will also use Access Art to learn about different styles of drawing and how to use shapes.

How you can help at home

Reading

We ask that you read with your child 5 times a week. This only needs to be a 10 minute session and you don’t have to finish a whole book every time. Please record any reads you have done with your child in their reading record as we will be continuing the reading bug challenge.

Each week your child will have one reading session with an adult.  During this session, your child will change their school reading book. The class teacher will let you know your child’s reading day in the first week back so that you know which day to have the book ready in their book bags.

Your child will also have one library session each week where they are able to choose a library book. The children have free choice with their library books. Again, during the first week you will find out your child’s library day.

Reading does not have to be limited to the books children bring home from school. It can include any books they have at home, reads with siblings or reading books from the local library.

Maths

The children will be continuing with maths planets this year and will carry on from their end point in Year 1.  Please practise your child’s maths facts at least 3 times a week. If your child is stuck on a level for more than 4 weeks then we will intervene at school.

Learning Overview

To see example questions for each level please visit the maths curriculum section of our website.

 

Spelling

Every Friday your child will write 8 spellings their yellow homework book.

They will then be tested on these spellings the following Friday. The spellings will also be on our classroom doors and on our class page on the website. The tests will be stuck into their yellow homework books so you can see how they have got on.

The spellings will contain the new sound patterns that we will be learning in class and are a way of reinforcing these spelling rules. Please practise at least 3 times each week with your child.

 

Spellings

 

During week 7 and 8 our spelling tests will be made up of a selection of words from this term.

These words will contain the following sounds:

  • Long a vowel sound
  • Long e vowel sound
  • Long i vowel sound
  • Long o vowel sound
  • Long u vowel sound
