Next week it is year 2’s turn to make the international news display. We have spoken to the children about it and they are quite excited to write about the news.
Can your help your child to find a news article, make a poster or write about a news article, which they have found interesting? This is optional of course but it would be really nice if we can fill up the display with lovely drawings and writing.
Please bring this to school with you on Monday 30th January. You can help your child but it should be their own work.
For literacy we will be working on the Hodgeheg, we will write a letter to a Tiggywinkles (an animal hospital where they rescue hedgehogs!) write about one of the characters of the book, predict the ending and retell the story. We will also talk about nouns. What are nouns? What nouns do we know?
Numeracy: We will be working on 3D shapes. We will identify and describe the properties of 3D shapes including the number of edges, vertices and faces. Identify 2D shapes on the surface of 3D shapes; for example, a circle on a cylinder and a triangle on a pyramid. Compare and sort common 3D shapes and everyday objects. Order and arrange combinations of mathematical objects, including 2D and 3D shapes, in repeating patterns and sequences
IPC: This is the last week we will be learning about water. We will try different types of water and do another cool experiment with filtering water.
Thank you! Frances and Monique
