Year 2 Mr Bosher

Welcome to class 9!

Welcome to the Summer Term

Summer term is now under way and we have lots of exciting things planned.

 

This term in Maths we will be continuing to use our new scheme (White Rose Maths) to help improve our understanding and reasoning skills. We're in our lead up to SATs now so we'll be covering a bit of everything to ensure the children are prepped in the best possible way. Each lesson we begin every lesson with some sort of counting - so we are still working hard to learn all of our times tables. We also complete a daily 8 which helps to reinforce some Mathematical concepts and revise areas of Maths we have found difficult that week. Please remember to keep practising and learning times tables at home.

 

In English we are working on our new scheme called Power of Reading which is helping the children to predict, talk about different text types and work on writing pieces linked to a particular text. The book we are learning about in the first part of the Summer Term is based in Africa and Paris. The children have had their first taste of the new book and they seem totally engrossed in it!

 

Our main topic for the first part of the Summer Term is the ZOO!! We'll covering lots of different aspects to do with animals during this topic. We have a trip planned to Colchester Zoo, a skype lesson with Lisbon Zoo in Portugal and our science topic will be covering habitats. we'll also be immersing our children into the Zoo topic through our other subjects too.

Have a great summer term!!!
