🖍📖 Welcome to 2K! 📚✏️
🌸 Miss Keogh's class 🌸
➗✖️ Times Tables ✖️➗
We have been learning the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables and using these to help us with division facts. Please continue to practise these with your child at home. There are lots of fun games online which you may wish to use.
The children have all received a log in for Times Table rock stars which they have written in the back of their reading records. They can log in to play some more times table games at home.
⏰ Telling the Time ⏰
We have also been learning to tell the time. Please continue to practise reading the time to 5 minute intervals.
🎾 PE ⚽️
PE sessions in Year 2 will now be on Wednesday afternoons (outdoor PE) and Friday afternoons (indoor PE). Remember earrings can not be worn and long hair must be tied back.
🖍 Homework ✏️
Please check your homework book for extra literacy activities and MyMaths for maths activities.
Please continue to read regularly and practise your spellings at home. Practising written comprehension questions about the book that your child is reading would also be beneficial.
🌞 Summer Term 🌞
Our Geography topic this term will be China. We will be locating China on a world map, finding out about the landmarks, physical features and the wildlife. We will be comparing daily life in China to life in the UK.
We will be linking our topic to our literacy in which we will be focussing on the traditional Chinese tale of The Magic Paintbrush and writing shape poetry. In D&T we will be researching, designing and making our own kites.
🇨🇳 Chinese day! 🇨🇳
The children really enjoyed our Chinese day at the end of last half term. We had a class competition to build the strongest Great Wall of China, we tried some Chinese stir fried vegetable and noodles (which we had to each with chop sticks) and we even learnt some mandarin!
