Welcome to Cherry class page.
Until the end of the summer term we will be looking at time, and measurement (weight, capacity and temperature). We will then focus on mathematical investigations and review the four operations in preparation for the Year 3 curriculum.
These units are taken from White Rose Maths
We will complete our work on The Smartest Giant in Town by Julia Donaldson. We will then explore Poems to Perform edited by Julia Donaldson, using the teaching sequence from the Power of Reading.
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 Kings and Queens and the role of Parliament and the Prime Minister.
Art and DT
We will be examining the work of Claude Monet with a focus on his paintings at Giverny using finger painting and re-creating pastel pictures of the Houses of Parliament. We will finish the term using clay and reviewing the work of George E Ohr.
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!
