What an exciting start to the year in Class 2! As part of our first week we shared about our summer holidays and our favourite part. We also undertook a classroom treasure hunt, so that we could become familiar with our new learning environment. Additionally, we created All about me bunting, drew self- portraits and our superhero selves! We have been busy!! (Starting as we mean to go on!) :-)
This term in Maths we’ll be learning about place value and developing our addition and subtraction skills. In Literacy we’ll be exploring traditional tales and stories from other cultures. I can’t wait to see all the amazing work we produce over the Autumn term.
Our new topic Busy Bodies is an exciting one! We are looking forward to finding out about the human body- all the different parts and investigating how to maintain our fitness. This is a superb topic to explore healthy eating and link this to our understanding of the wider world; thinking about where food comes from and Fairtrade products.
It will be fantastic to find out about the historical figures Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole and present our new found knowledge and understanding to each other. We’ll also start to develop our map skills by looking at where these historical figures travelled.
We have lots of art planned for this half term- looking at artists such as Pablo Picasso and Andy Goldsworthy and developing our own skills.
We’ll be starting the year as we mean to go on- learning how to interact and communicate with each other in a positive way and helping each other with our learning. We’ll be developing our growth mind-set and focussing on having respect for each other, resources, environment and the wider community. Respect, resilience and perseverance will be the qualities we are striving to achieve. As always, we’ll be busy- but it will be fun!! Let’s have a fantastic Autumn Class 2!
