Welcome back to Term 4.
We look forward to welcoming all of the children back on 8th March. we have really missed them and look forward to seeing their smiley faces! When the children come back, there will be an emphasis on well-being and mental health. We will ensure the children have time to talk and play with their friends, strengthening relationships.
In Maths, we will be revising the four main operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) and making sure the children are secure in this before we move onto fractions. Fractions relies heavily on the children's multiplication and division skills so please encourage them to use TT Rockstars or Hit the Button so that their speed of recall improves.
Our English lessons will be based on the book Traction Man. Following this, the children will be assessed and put into either Literacy and Language or Read, Write Inc groups according to their ability. Reading will be a major focus, we will be having some whole class reading lessons, teaching the children skills of inference and deduction. In addition, all children will have a Star Test to review their AR range. Below are some links to online books which you may find helpful.
In Science we are learning about plants. We will be making the most of the spring weather and going outside in the garden to do some planting. There will be a competition between 2G and 2S to see who can grow the tallest sunflower.
