Autumn 2 curriculum

 

Maths

Our maths learning will focus on:

  • Multiplication and division using “groups of” when reading the X sign and “shared between” and “grouped into” when reading the ? sign.
  • Subtraction (as a recap from last term) and using the column method to subtract 2 digit numbers from 2 digits numbers

 

Reading 

Week beginning 22nd November, children will be taking the Phonics Screening Check. We have been preparing the children at school and they are familiar with the format. It is really important that your child is in school this week and comes to school well rested, having had a good breakfast. 

In reading lessons  we will be practising our fluency and beginning to use expressions when reading a book at our level. Answering simple questions about a text (starting with what, when, who for example). We will be looking at texts to support our science knowledge and reading The Man on the Moon. 


Please read with your child every day. You can also use the Reading Eggs programme to support your children’s learning.

Remember to record your child’s reading in their R@Homebook. This includes books you read to them. Please talk to your child about what they are reading and remember, reading the same book over and over helps children to develop confidence and fluency in reading.

 Writing

We will be learning about and using adjectives (describing words) and prepositions (words which tell you about where something is). By the end of the half term, we will write a description of a main character and the setting using the skills we have learnt. (Using the book we are reading as inspiration). 

Science

In science, we are learning all about materials! Building on our knowledge from year 1, we will learn about the suitability of different materials. We will ask scientific questions, plan investigations and carry out experiments to learn more about the properties of materials.  

DT

Using our knowledge from science, we will use suitable materials to design, make and evaluate a moving vehicle! 

 

PSHE

Our theme this half term is ‘Celebrating Difference’ where we will be learning about how we can appreciate and be respectful to the diversity around us. 

 

Religious Education

We will be learning about what Christians believe about Christmas and what people do to celebrate culturally in the UK.

Homework

Information about weekly homework can be found on your child's Google Classroom and in their red homework book. If you have any questions, please contact the school office.
