Every Friday we have a mental maths test , it is the aim to beat the previous weeks score , you can help your child with this by counting in 2's, 5's, and 10's with them, and doing addition and subtraction sums to 20.
Summer term topic- DINOSAURS!
Please use these to help your child with their learning at home..
So what are we learning about this term ?
So far in our topic work we have been learning about the different layers of the rainforest and what animals live there. Have a look at the pictures and see our fabulous art work! We have been doing careful drawings of the different creatures that can be found living on the forest floor, and in the understory layer of the rainforest.
We have followed instructions to make paper plate snakes , carefully observed the beautiful colours of different butterflies , and studied the interesting shapes of rainforest leaves, to transform the library area into a jungle of our very own !
We have been writing stories , working hard to innovate 'Where The Wild Things Are'. We've focused on using descriptive language, and making exciting changes to the original story. The class has thoroughly enjoyed creating their own characters from magical fairies, to blood thirsty zombies!
On our investigation table we've been studying different rainforest animals and insects , if you have access to any information books, or the internet at home you could do your own research..
What does it look like ?
What is its habitat like ?
What does it eat ?
Is it endangered ?
Ask your child to tell you about their story ...

Next stop .. Fact file writing!
View this page to help you gather rainforest facts and get ahead with your writing .
PE Year 2
During this term in PE the children have been practising their PESS gymnastic movements and positions. Some of these include: seals, scorpions, crabs, crawling soldiers and skydivers.
The children's confidence has excelled which has enabled their agility, balance and co-ordination to progress both individually, and when working with others.
Ask your child to show you some of their moves !
