Class 2

 
Reaching for the Stars with Aspiration and Hope
 
We have started the year learning remotely and know that we are working in partnership with parents to help to support children's continued learning as best we can. We are very much in this together and recognise the enormous pressure parents are under to support home learning when they are still trying to work from home and care for other children. We thank you so much for all of your help and know that you are giving it the very best you can under the circumstances. In recognition and respect for the time and effort you are all putting in, we are allotting a Friday afternoon to wellbeing, where you and your children can 'just be'- no work :)
 

In English we will learning from the Secret of Black Rock by Joe Todd Stanton, as well as practising daily reading using Purple Mash and continuing with spelling and handwriting work. In RE we will be learning about Islam, finding out about the beliefs, traditions and customs of this religion. Maths work will focus on number work and division.

As Geographers, we will exploring the United Kingdom, learning about physical geographical features e.g. rivers, mountains, the water cycle and oceans. We will be continuing with our music, using Charanga to 'I want to Play in a Band' and 2 Beat on Purple Mash. We will also be exploring and experimenting with shading in art. 

 

We will also be encouraging children to be as active as possible, to play out in the garden (even in the rain) and to get out of the house for exercise as the rules permit.
