Pine Class


Welcome back

I hope you enjoyed the lovely weather we had over the Easter holidays. We are back into a very short but very busy half term in the build up to the Year 2 SATs, which will take place during May.

In Maths we are revisiting addition and subtraction number sentences, word problems and 2 step word problems, before moving onto the four operations. In Literacy we are going to complete an exciting poetry topic called ‘What I play’ where we will learn to create, write and perform a range of different styles of poetry.

In topic we are moving away from Africa and the animals we would find there, to Kings and Queens. We will be finding out why Britain has a Monarch and focusing on a few of our Kings and Queens from the past and now in the present. Our Art will be linked to our topic and we will aim to create portraits of a chosen King or Queen, before imagining ourselves as a King or Queen and completing a self-portrait.

In Science, we will be learning about our Environment, and what we can do to protect it. We will be finding out about the changing climate and the affect it is having on the world and how, what and why we can recycle different objects.

On Thursdays, Pine Class will be taking part in both forest schools and swimming. Forest schools will be outdoors, so please send your child in with appropriate clothing and footwear; they will also need their swimming kit for the afternoon.

As the weather is hopefully improving, please make sure your child brings a sunhat to school, and could you please put suntan lotion on before school, which can last all day, otherwise they may miss part of their playtime applying it themselves.

Your child still needs a coat, diary and drinks bottle in school every day.

Thank you

Mr Lamoureux
