What are we learning? 

Literacy 

In Literacy we will be reading . We will be using this story as a base for information texts, book reviews, as well as writing playscripts based on familiar stories. We are also running a reading comprehension session to develop these skills. 

Maths 

In Maths this half term we will re-visit addition and subtraction. We will have a big focus on column addition and subtraction and use this to solve both arithmetic and word problems. We will then move onto looking at fractions of shapes and numbers, mainly focusing on halves, quarters and thirds. Finally we will look at time, learning to tell analogue and digital time to the closest five minutes.  

Science 

In Science we are looking at plants. We will learn that plants can be grown from seeds and bulbs. We will complete a practical investigation where we plant seeds and bulbs and monitor their progress throughout the half term.  

Geography 

We will be exploring settlements including villages, towns and cities. We will look at the human and physical features of each and examine their similarities and differences. 

History 

We will continue our learning from last half term about the Great Fire of London. Our key focus will be how the events of the fire still have a lasting impact on life in London today. We will discuss how we know about the fire and other historical events through primary sources and will explore some of these in detail.  

RE 

In RE we will be learning about the Easter story. 

Computing 

In Computing this term we will be learning about presenting information in different ways.  

Art 

In Art this half term our topic is printing. We will learn how to use printing inks and rollers top create mono-prints.   

DT 

In Spring term, we will be using a design brief to design and then make a bag. We will learn to sew using a running stitch and use this new skill when making our own bag. We will also look at ways to decorate and embellish the bag and finally evaluate our product. 

PSHE 

In PSHE we will be learning about the Notting Hill Carnival. We will explore its origins and the significant activists who helped create positive change in society.   

PE 

In PE we will develop our skills to play rugby and playing in a team. 

Music 

In Music we will be exploring a wide variety of music, discussing the tempo, pulse, rhythm and dynamics of each piece. We will also be learning to sing three different songs.  

How can I help at home? 

One of the key ways every parent can help is to ensure that your child is at school every day and on time. Other than this, the main way you can help is by ensuring that your child reads every day, for at least 10 - minutes – this can be with you, or on their own, but it is the most effective way of ensuring that your child progresses and learns outside of school. Practicing times tables frequently is vital, and children should be confident in their times tables by the end of year 4. Year 2s focus tables are 2, 5 and 10.  

Children have logins for Times Tables Rockstars and Purple Mash– please encourage them to use this frequently, as it will really help with their quick recall of mathematical facts. 

If you have any questions, please talk to Miss Campbell or Mrs Souissi. 

Thanks, 

Miss Campbell and Mrs Souissi
