Hedgehog Class

English

As part of our Kings and Queens topic the children will be encouraged to engage within a number of activities relating to many fictional Kings and Queens. During the term we will be reading ‘The Queen’s Hat’ and ‘The Princess and the White Bear King’. Poetry will also be read, acted out and created by the children. They will be encouraged to think creatively about the rules they would decide if they were the King or the Queen. The children will also learn about Queen Victoria’s coronation and write a diary entry in role as the Queen, reflecting on the day’s events

Maths

Throughout the term our Maths focus is all about Numbers! Reading and writing numbers, both in numerals and in words whilst comparing bigger and smaller numbers using the greater and less signs (< >). Partitioning numbers into tens and units will be explored and we will begin to look at the hundreds. The children will begin to understand fractions, with a high focus on halves. The children will also be furthering their understanding in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, building upon the skills they learnt in year 1

Homework

 

In year 2, we try to promote a love of reading. During our transition afternoon the children made their own bookmarks. Each time they read at home (please sign their record to show this) they will collect a star sticker. Once all the stars have been filled they will be able to choose a prize and their bookmark will be added to our star reader board. Please try to help your child achieve their prize.

Your child will also bring a spelling sheet home each week to be completed
