Welcome to Cherry class page.
I hope that you all had a relaxing half term.
This term the children will be looking at statistics, in particular tally charts and pictograms. We will then be focusing on properties of shape and measurements.
These units are taken from White Rose Maths
We will be beginning a new unit based around 'the book 'Traction Man is Here' by Mini Grey. The teaching sequences are taken from Power of Reading.
As a class we really enjoy reading and we should aim to read at least 20 minutes a day. On completion of reading a book an AR test needs to be completed to review your child's understanding of the book.
80% is the passmark and if your child successfully achieves this for a number of books they may move up a level.
Reading is vitally important to your child's progress in all areas of the curriculum.
The children will be learning about the countries in Northern Europe. We will be identifying the countries, describing the animals and climate and studying the explorer Roald Amundsen.
We will be looking at Christian and Medieval art which follows on from our history study of 1066 and the Normans.
Our homework is given out once a week on a Friday and should be returned by the Wednesday of the following week to allow for it to be marked. It is essential that work is completed as it is selected to support the learning for that week. The homework comprises of either: handwriting, TTrockstars or comprehension.
We use Times tables rock stars to support your child's learning. It is essential that they access the website everyday to support development in the recall of the facts. The quicker your child can recall the information, the quicker they will progress up the leader board. Year 2 are expected to be able to know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables and their associated division facts. We have a weekly tables test on a Wednesday afternoon - so keep practising!
