Autumn

Welcome back to Term 2!

Our preparations for our Christmas play is in full swing. Children with lines should have come home this week with scripts and we are learning songs and dances in school. We will be giving out letters to let you know whether you will need to provide anything to help with costumes within the next few days.

In English we have been learning all about Non-Fiction writing. Children have been completing fact files all about creatures which live under the sea.

In Maths we have started adding together two digit numbers. If you would like, it would be helpful if you could consolidate this with your children at home.

Example 1: Adding multiples of 10

23 + 20 =

Example 2: Adding two 2-digit numbers not crossing tens

35 + 12

Example 3: Adding two 2-digit numbers crossing tens

58 + 25

Example 4: Missing number problems

42 + 18 = 33 + ?

In our other curriculum areas we have been studying what happens when you mix oil and water, as well as how animals are adapted to their habitats. We have created paintings inspired by the Turner and have continued to study the four countries that make up the United Kingdom.

In computing we have started to develop work inspired by different artist using a range of art software.

We will continue to test times tables and spellings each week and ask that you can ensure your child is heard read at home at least 5 times.

Thanks
