What do I already know? What do I want to find out?
Our topic for Autumn is mysterious materials and nature's treasures under the sea. We are asking all sorts of questions in our thinking groups.
Here are a few of them...
What is the difference between a natural and a man-made material?
Is paper a natural or man-made material?
Should you throw your plastic rubbish into the sea?
How can we clean up the oceans and help to save the sea creatures?
Are starfish fish?
Where does the common shore crab live?
How do seahorses protect themselves against predators?
Did you know?
...that starfish are also called sea stars?
...that seahorses prefer to swim in pairs with their tails linked together?
...that the common shore crab is usually dark green? I wonder why?
'An ocean tumbled by with a private boat for Max
and he sailed off through night and day
and in and out of weeks
and almost over a year
to where the wild things are. '
Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
Now for the useful bit...
Please bring your PE kits to school every Thursday and wear or bring suitable footwear for outdoor sports. Children also need their wellies in school each Wednesday for Forest School activities. You can leave your kit and wellies in school . We will send them home every half term.
Your homework comes home with you every Thursday or Friday, please return to school by Tuesday at the latest so that we can exchange on Wedneday . Please keep your homework bags on the book bag peg.
You can bring a drink of water to school everyday!
Please bring your dinner /fruit money to school in a wallet, purse, envelope, or money bag each day, clearly labelled with your name. It will be kept in a special, locked money box until break or lunchtime.
We have a class fruit/snack bowl that you can pop your healthy snack for break into. Or else you can keep it in your own bag on your peg.
There are no set spellings or a spelling test in Year 2. But we would ask that you try to work with your child on the list of high frequency words that we sent home at the beginning of the year. These spellings are the expectation for the end of year 2 and lists are sent home at the beginning of the year and are available during parents evenings.
Beat that ! Maths test
Every Friday we have a mental maths test , it is the aim for your child to beat their 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.
