Our value this term is Caring
This week our P4C question is…
Should you help your friend even if you might get hurt?
Our stimulus was
The Bear that Spoke – Aesop’s Fables
Here is the new homework grid. If work could be done at home and then sent to us via Class Dojo, that would be great as there are no Homework Books this year.
What we are up to this term.
We have a very busy first term in Year 2.
The new value for the term is CARING, this is one of the new values chosen by the children. The children will have weekly P4C sessions that are linked to Caring and various other topics. The aim will be to develop their ability to ask and respond to questions in ever-growing detail.
All Information about this half term’s teaching will be contained within the Curriculum Web, which is attached to this page via the link above.
Our topic this term will be ‘Marvellous Marston’. We will be looking into the local area and what makes up the Marston area. The children will investigate the range of houses and the time periods they were built in. We will be looking into key physical and human geographical features of the surrounding area, as well as using fieldwork and observational skills.
Reading records can be brought back in daily or weekly. The aim is to read at least 5 times a week. When we have the reading records in we will collate how much the children have read and if they read 5 times a week for 3 weeks there will be a small prize given. They are of course encouraged to read as much as possible.
PE will be on Monday afternoons. The children will need to come into school in their PE kit. The school PE kit consists of a white or red t-shirt (plain is fine), black or blue shorts/tackies and suitable trainers (preferably not pumps this year as they will spend the whole day in their PE kits and they will need more support on their feet. When it gets colder outside more layers will be needed to keep them warm.

Homework is now virtual. If one piece can be done a week and sent in that would be great.
