Class 2

During Autumn Term our topic is Habitat and Heritage.

 

During our topic of habitat and heritage we will be exploring the environment around us. We will begin our studies in Tow Law with an emphasis on the local Wildflower Project then expand our research to familiar and unfamiliar habitats.  

 

In science we will study the habitats of animals and find out about what they need to survive. We will focus on wild flowers and plants and how they are similar and different from one another. We will compare habitats of animals from our local environment and those that are far away.  

In art we will be completing observational drawings ourselves and each other. We will also collect natural artefacts from our school grounds to use for printing.

In history we will research our local heritage. We will find out about Tow Law in the past and present and how it has changed. We will make simple timelines of historical events. We will also find out about famous people from the local area such as Charles Attwood.

In geography we will make maps and plans of our local area. We will learn about how Tow Law has developed throughout history.

In DT we will be baking and cooking from traditional recipes. We will back and decorate gingerbread men and Christmas cookies. We will bake our own bread and make a traditional North East pie.

In music we will sing traditional songs. We will begin to accompany them with tuned and un-tuned instruments.

In computing we will learn to understand simple algorithms and create simple programs. We will design a program based on our local environment.

In PE we will develop our dance skills by learning traditional dances such as country dancing. We will play team games such as skittles.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION....

 

In class two we get our homework books on a Wednesday. We can choose an activity that we would like to do and then return our books on a Monday to be marked and shown to our friends.

 

We get spellings to learn on a Friday, we should return our spelling book to school the following Friday before the spelling test. All of the words we are tested on are from our phonics and GPS lesson that week.

 

We should read our reading books to an adult every night and ask them to sign our reading diary. Diaries are looked at in school three times a week and books are changed when necessary. Some of us take a quiz to show that we understand what we have read. We read in class throughout the week sometimes using a different scheme to those we bring home, this helps to challenge our reading and develop our understanding of key words and information.

 

PE in the Autumn Term is on Tuesday and Friday. We need to wear a PE kit and plimsolls and take our earrings out ourselves or at home. Weather permitting, we will do PE outside so we may bring in a black or dark blue tracksuit to wear also.

 

If you have any questions or queries please come and speak to Miss Ellison or make an appointment after school. Thank you
