Class 2- Spring 1st Half Term 2018

Here is what your children are learning about this half term:

Class Topic:  Extreme Environments


Linking literacy to our topic, we will be using a variety of resources to find information about different environments around the world. We will be comparing our local/national environmental conditions to those found in the polar regions, deserts and mountain regions of the world. We will find out how people and animals have adapted to the conditions and what has caused them. Using a variety of texts as stimuli we will write letters, diary entries and narratives about the different regions.


We will begin by focusing on number operations and using our skills to solve problems. Then we will go onto look at fractions and decimals, and finally some work on time.


Our science topic is materials. This will link to our work on environments through some investigations about materials most suitable for different climates. We will also be looking at the water cycle and see how some materials can change when they are heated and cooled.


Class 2 are going swimming on Mondays and learning gymnastic skills with Ms Carruthers from Richmond School on Tuesdays.

History and Geography

This will link to our topic. We will be using atlases to name and locate areas of the world and become familiar with the world map.


We will begin by looking at paintings of winter by famous artists and have a go at painting ourselves. Then we will be using textiles in DT to link with the topic.


To enhance our music, we have Mr Denton, who has very kindly offered to come in to teach the children singing on a Wednesday afternoon. We will also be learning the violin or cello with Mrs Evans as part of the Wider Opportunities in Music scheme.


Our RE topic is ‘Warn Hearts’, learning about the founding of the Methodist Church by John Wesley. We will find out about his life and beliefs and what makes the Methodist Church unique.


PSHCE is about being ‘Good to be Me’ and being able to understand and cope with our own feelings.


We will be using the computers to research places around the world in our topic. We will also use DB.
