Teacher: Miss Skues
Each term, we produce a knowledge organiser to explain the key areas of the topic we will be focusing on. A knowledge organiser is a document that contains key facts and information that children need to have a basic knowledge and understanding of a topic.
Most knowledge organisers will include:
- the essential facts about the topic, usually laid out in easily digestible chunks
- key vocabulary or technical terms and their meaning
This term our Key Question is History based: 'Is my Childhood the same as my Grandparents' Childhood?' We will be comparing toys, games, school and lifestyle of children today with those born in the mid twentieth century. During our DT lessons, we will look at moving toys and design and make our own. We will extend our understanding of childhood in the past through a visit to Bexhill Museum and will share our knowledge in a classToy Musem. Our key text is 'Traction Man' by Mini Grey and we will be using our imagination to make up our own stories about this superhero. In Science, we continue with our topic Everyday Materials and we will be investigating how materials can be changed.
This term we have PE on THURSDAYS.
Please remember to hear your child read daily – it makes such a difference to your child’s reading.
You can also come into the Year 2 class at the end of every day to read with your child.
A new homework sheet will be stuck into the children's homework books at the beginning of the term. Please ensure the books come into school each Monday. I love to see what the children are learning at home!
