Yangtze - Year Two
We will be exploring our wildlife garden and pond area. We will also be visiting Fairburn Ings and hunting for land and pond mini-beasts. We will make our own ‘Bug Hotels.’ We will be finding out about the life cycles of different mini-beasts and writing explanations. We will also be planting seeds and observing how they grow.
In Literacy we will be reading Jack and the Beanstalk and will be writing our own stories. We will be reading The Twits by Roald Dahl and will be writing instructions and recounts.
In maths we will be solving problems involving all four operations. We will be measuring weight, length and capacity and will be reading scales.
In RE we will be thinking about the question ‘What did Jesus teach and how did he live?’
Our MindMate topic is Solving Problems/ Making it Better and our PSHE topic is ‘What keeps me healthy?’
PE will be on Mondays and Tuesdays this half term. Your child needs PE kit for PE indoors and outdoors.
