Summer Term

I hope you all had a good Easter Break and found lots of eggs!!

After all the fun we had on Outdoor Learning day the children have asked if they could learn about Minibeasts for their next Topic. This will involve lots of exploring outside looking for bugs around the school, digging up in the mud and plating flowers for the bees!

This is going to be a short term and amongst it we also have the national tests coming up in the next few weeks for the Year 2 pupils. If you have any questions, please come and see me or you can visit Learning Wales website for further information on the tests.

In literacy we will be making fact sheets about the insects we learn about and continue with our phonics, spelling of high frequency words and reading. We will also be looking at books by Eric Carle, and making acrostic poems.

In maths we will measuring the length and weight of different insects. Looking at 2D shapes, patterns and symmetry. We will be using ladybirds to look at doubling and halving.

In knowledge and understanding of the World we will be looking at insects habitats and what they eat. We will be making bug hotels and create our very own wormery.
