Welcome Back! I have heard a lot about your fantastic summer holidays during the first few days of the new term. As a class, we have enjoyed getting to know each other and our topics for the coming term.
Our focus this term will be Stone Age to Iron Age. We are reading Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura and basing our literacy learning on this. We are starting off with instruction writing and then moving onto diary writing.
In Maths, we will be following the White Rose Scheme of Learning. This will begin with place value, for both year 2 and year 3, and then moving into addition and subtraction towards the half term.
For our Science session we will be looking at rocks and fossils. Our curriculum focus for the term will be Art and Design, during which the children will be designing, making and displaying their own Stone Age jewellery.
Our PE sessions will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Tuesdays will be indoor, during which we will be focussing on fire dancing (not with real fire!) and Thursdays will take place outside for Tag Rugby (just in time for the World Cup!)
Hawks will have Mr Farrell on Wednesday afternoon for R.E (Nature Worship) and I.C.T (E-Safety), Mrs Johnson will have Hawks on Thursday afternoons for outdoor P.E and P.S.H.E (Anti-Bullying).
Our homework for this term will be solely focussed on spellings, reading and times table. This is to ensure that all children are developing their skills to support them in their ongoing learning. Spellings and times tables will be handed out on Fridays to be tested the following Friday. Children are expected to be reading three times a week this year and will have regular opportunities to change their reading books within school.
If anyone has any questions, queries or concerns please come and speak me as I am happy to help.
