Welcome to Class 2!
I hope you all had a lovely summer break and are feeling refreshed and ready for the year ahead. I am really looking forward to being the teacher in Class 2.
The overarching theme for this half-term is ‘All about me’, meaning that several of our lessons will be focussing around this. In English, we will be writing instructions about how to be a good friend and be creating ‘All about me’ poems. In Geography, we will be investigating where we live and will be learning how to become a meteorologist. Our PSHE topic is titled ‘Myself and My Relationships: Beginning and Belonging’ where we will continue work we started yesterday about creating healthy relationships in the classroom and around school as well as discussing who we can trust. RE will be considering whether it is possible to be kind all the time. In French, we will be learning simple phrases for greetings, names and numbers.
Other topics we will be learning about this half term include investigating and classifying properties of different materials in Science. We will be learning about IT in the world around us for our Computing lessons and we will be learning about Pulse in Music. In Design and Technology we will learn about wheels and axles and PE for this half term will be Basketball.
Maths will be based around the White Rose scheme of learning and the first block is all about Place Value.
Below are the Knowledge Organisers for each of our topics for this half term. Please have a look at them and use them at home as a way of talking about what we are learning in school with your children.
I’m looking forward to having a great year in Class 2.
