Year Two Newsletter - Summer Term 1 2021
Happy Summer time Parents/Carers!
Welcome back to school – it was lovely to see you and to meet with you all last week for parent consultations.
Our topic this term is ‘Our Wonderful World’. We will be discussing and looking at ways of protecting our dear old planet Earth and how to help some of the endangered animals such as tigers and polar bears to name only a few. This topic feeds into Science, DT, Literacy and Music – in fact every subject come to think of it! We are excited to learn about wonders of the world too such as volcanoes and earthquakes!
So… Our English focus is story writing. We will be enjoying lots of fabulous books using these to develop our own story language.
In Science we will be researching animals, habitats and learning about why some are endangered.
In Art we will looking at the stunningly beautiful tiger paintings by Henri Rousseau and recreate our own interpretations of these!
In Maths we will be revising work covered already as well as learning Place Value, Problem Solving, Time, Monday and Fractions.
Continuing our Global Link, we will be looking at the many counties which house endangered animals.
Please keep up the good work with homework: spellings, reading and Friday Challenges, to give your children the best chance of success. You have all done such a good job so far!
