Welcome to Cherry class page.
We are looking at addition and subtraction and are practising counting in multiples of 10, 5 and 2.
We follow the White Rose Maths scheme.
We are looking at traditional tales and will also be looking at the Bethan Woolvin version of Rapunzel from the Power of Reading as a comparison.https://clpe.org.uk/powerofreading
As a class we really enjoy reading and your child 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.
We will be looking at regions in the UK.
Art and DT
The children will be looking at colour, shape and texture, recognising geometric shapes in art and creating self portraits.
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 regularly 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!
