Welcome to 2R. We are beginning the year with our first topic which is ‘Who lives in a house like this?’. Optional homework for our current topic is to research and explore a habitat and create a poster sharing what you have learned. Please bring it into school before 11th October 2019. Our next topic is ‘New York’, optional homework will be sent home at the beginning of the topic. Each morning we have spelling lessons. We are focusing on using the correct sounds to spell and how to spell common exception words, as well as this we are learning how to spell and use homophones. We will have handwriting practise daily where we will focus on using diagonal joins. The children have access to handwriting sheets to bring home to continue working on their joins if they choose too. Further practise at home will be fantastic. In writing we are beginning our first text ‘The three little pigs’. We will then move onto poetry followed by a recount, fairy tale and persuasive writing. In maths we are going to be focusing on place value, addition, subtraction, money, multiplication, division and time. PE will be on Monday so please ensure earrings are taken out before school if the children can’t take them out themselves and spelling tests will be every Friday. Ensure you are accessing TT Rockstars and reading a part of your book each day.
