This will be taught to the children as a mixture of English, Geography, History, Music and Art & DT lessons.  Year 2 will be looking at a range of books upon the subject of beaches which will aid in our writing lessons to help us produce some fantastic description of beaches, creating our own sea creature like the Loch Ness monster, creating newspaper reports before finally an adventure piece of writing. In Maths we will be developing our knowledge of measurements, statistics as well as recapping all the things we have already learnt. We will make sure that we move on to some problem solving and reasoning to give us some depth. In Music we are learning the Ocarina and learning the different notes and learn to play songs. We are looking at how we collect data which will tie in nicely with our Science which revolves around plants and how they grow.

 

With so much to do, don't be surprised if our little Puffins and Hedgehogs come home a little tired! Remember to read every night. Other homework will be weekly spellings, Mathletics, Times Table Rockstars and pre-learning tasks. There will be great prizes for those who complete their homework, but reading every night should be the biggest priority.
