Our topic this half term is food.
As part of our topic, we will be learning about where the food we eat comes from in Geography and learning to use an atlas confidently. In Science, we will be learning how to keep our bodies healthy by eating a healthy balanced diet. We will be learning about the 5 different food groups and also how exercise is important to keep us healthy. The children will enjoy cooking a variety of food throughout this topic, learning skills to prepare ingredients and following instructions. In Literacy, we will be learning about rhyming words and writing a range of poems and riddles about food.
Our PE days are on Wednesday and Thursdays. Thursday is Gymnastics with our gym coach, Miss Foster. Please ensure that your child has their PE kit (white t-shirt, shorts and trainers or plimsolls in school with their name in them) for these days and that hair is tied back and earrings removed. Thank you.
The children will have homework books and reading records.
Please make sure you are reading with your child regularly and record this in their reading record, this supports your child's progress noticeably. Please make sure that children have their books and reading record available in school everyday. Children in year 2 will change their books when they have finished them.
Also please complete the 5 a day activity on Doodle maths. This is a quick activity to help understand what areas your child needs support in and will adapt according to their answers so please try to let your child complete this themselves so the results and future learning can be accurate.
If you have any concerns or questions feel free to come and see us at the end of the day.
