Welcome to Owl Class
Welcome to Owl class! I hope you had a fantastic summer and are looking forward to starting Year 2. We have lots of fun things planned!
In English, we are going to be talking all about our Summer holidays. You will be drawing some pictures and writing descriptive sentences about your summer. You will also be writing some postcards to tell other people the exciting things you did!
Our English lessons will ensure the children can do the following:
- Consider what they are going to write before beginning.
- Evaluating their writing with the teacher and other pupils.
- Proof-reading to check for errors in spelling, grammar and punctuation.
- Learn how to use both familiar and new punctuation correctly, including full stops, capital letters, exclamation marks, question marks, commas for lists and apostrophes for contracted forms and the possessive (singular).
In Maths, we are learning about place value. We will start by looking at numbers to 20 and then go onto looking at numbers to 100! We will be looking at how we can partition numbers in many different ways before moving on to using number lines and estimating where numbers should go with numbers missing on a number line.
In our learning in our other subjects the owls will be learning lots of different facts about owls. We will be using these facts to write some factfiles! We are going to become Owl experts! After we have finished our learning on owls we we will start our computing learning in which we will be learning how to stay safe online.
On Thursday's we have our PE learning. This half term we will be focusing on Athletics and Ball Skills. We will be using last half terms learning to help us find different ways to control balls using a variety of different size balls and other equipment such as tennis rackets. This will include working in teams to work on our throwing and catching skills .We will then be using these skills to help us develop our running an jumping to enable us to compete in Athletics competitions against each other.
Please make sure your child has their reading journals and a labelled water bottle in school every day and that their jumpers are clearly labelled.
Our PE day this year will be every Thursday. The children should come to school in their PE kits on a Thursday.
We will be visiting the library on Thursday afternoons. Please can children bring their library books in on Thursdays so that they can changes them and choose different stories to share with you at home.
To minimise the risk of lost property, we ask that all clothing items are clearly labelled with a name, even PE kit items.
