Welcome to Class 2 – Mrs Stevenson.
Last half term we were learning about: At The Seaside
Our topic during the last half term was ‘At the Seaside’. This had a geography focus. We completed work on locating the seven continents and five oceans of the world. We identified physical and human features of the environment and compared those geographical features found at the seaside with those closer to home. We created a map with a key which included simple symbols. We linked some of our learning to the Olympics, looking at similarities and differences between Japan and the UK.
Well done to everyone who gained Class Dojo points during the last half term. Our top scorers were EW, AM, KS, O-GH and IC.
Take a look at some of the fantastic learning we have done:
We are most proud of: learning first aid skills. We learnt to put a patient in the recovery position as well as practising CPR on an unconscious patient.
This half term we will be learning about: Me and My Family
Our key learning skill for this half term is: Resilience.
We will be developing it by: setting ourselves goals, learning from our mistakes and building our self-confidence.

Homework: Children always have reading as part of their homework and are expected to read at home regularly. In mathematics the children need to practise the number bonds to and within 10, initially and then use these to calculate number bonds to and within 20; as well as practising their 2’s,5’s and10 times tables. Children have a log on and passwords to access ‘TT Rockstars’ at home. Each week, the children’s spellings are uploaded to ‘Teams’.
