Term 3 Update

We have had a wonderful week getting arty! We created these amazing faces in the style of Picasso who was the hero that we have been studying this week. As well as that in English this week we wrote descriptive pieces full of expanded noun phrases and commas in lists to describe Picasso’s famous painting of ‘The Three Musicians’. Next week we are looking at Mozart and Beethoven in Topic and over the next two weeks we are going to be writing our own superhero stories in English!

In Maths this week we have been interpreting, drawing and answering questions about tally charts and pictograms. Instead of Abacus homework this week the children have a tally chart worksheet to complete by next Friday. Next week in Maths we are continuing to look at pictograms and moving on to explore block graphs aswell.

Please note:

Miss Diamond our student teacher will be leaving us at the end of this term. I will explain this to the children but you might like to explain it too.

Safer Internet Day is Tuesday 6th February and we are really looking forward to a day off of timetable to talk all things e-safety.

Next term is our whole school Topic term. This year it will be based around STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). We are looking forward to experimenting, creating interesting pieces, completing our home challenges (which will be set in Term 4) and learning about jobs in these areas. More information will follow in the upcoming weeks.

Please continue to read as much as possible at home because we have seen a decline in reading in Y2 and not many children are moving around our race track. Also please be aware of the changes to your childs spellings and ensure they are practising these at home
