Miss Brown's Class!
Welcome to Class 5. A class of inspirational Year 2 children who work well as a team! This term our topic is 'Wilmslow's Got Talent'.
In English we will be writing our own information book inspired by our visitors. We will be finding ways of making our sentences more exciting using adverbs, conjunctions and adjectives. We will be developing our Phonics skills in our daily Letters and Sounds sessions and learning spelling rules to help further improve our writing.
In Maths the children will be continuing to improve their mental maths skills, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing at speed. We will also be working with money to find totals and give change. Please take every opportunity at home to help your child practice their 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s!
In our topic lessons, we will be learning all about The Plague and The Great Fire of London - looking at what happened, how it started and why it spread so quickly. We will become news reporters, reporting on the events as if it happened today!
In Science, we will be looking at humans and animals. We are looking at how we can stay healthy and how animals look after their young.
In Design and Technology this half term we will be designing our own emergency vehicles, looking at how we can attach moving wheels to them and evaluating the end product.
If you have a problem no matter how big or small please come and visit us after school and we will always be willing to help.
Don't forget- we have numeracy, comprehension and spellings homework which will be given out on a Friday to be handed back by the following Wednesday. Spellings will be tested on a Wednesday.
Please help your child to read at home every night. They can change their books whenever they have finished and can take a couple at a time if they are eager to do so.
In Class 5 we do PE on a Tuesday and a Wednesday so please make sure you have a PE kit in school, including pumps!
