The Pentecost Term- What will we learn?

The Wind In The Willows

In English we are focusing on creating an adventure story based on ‘The Wind in the Willows’. Following this, the children will write letters written in role as one of the animals from ‘The Wind in the Willows’, recounting a sequence of events. Finally to end the term, the children will innovate a Poem called ‘Duck’s Ditty’.

In Maths we will complete our topic on Shape before moving onto Fractions, Length and Height and Position & Direction.

In RE during the Pentecost Term, we will explore the topic ‘Spread the Word’ as this is a time to spread the Good News.

Our Science topic this term focuses on Living Things and their Habitats. We will be exploring and comparing the habitats of plants and animals including minibeasts from local areas and less familiar habitats.

In Design and Technology, we will use the Disciplinary Skills of a good Designer to create a Puppet character from The Wind in the Willows using textiles to support our re-tell of the adventure story.

Our Geography lessons will focus on learning about seasonal and daily weather patterns in the United Kingdom. The children will observe and record weather conditions and start to consider how these affect human activity. We will be focusing on using our Disciplinary Skills of a good Geographer to think about what happens during the season of summer, what the weather is like in summer including what happens to the length of the day, and what happens to plants and animals.

In Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) we will be learning about Living in the Wider World.

In PE, the children will be doing Games, focusing on striking and fielding.

You will see below our timetable for this next half term along with the knowledge organisers for our new topic: Wind in the Willows.

During this term, the Year 2 children will be completing their SATs. In school, we will be undertaking booster groups to ensure the children are ready for the tests. Please also work with your child to complete the CGP revision books to support them in preparation for the tests in May. Thank you.

Look out for up-to-date messages and homework on Class Dojo.

Many thanks,

Miss Buttarazzi and Mrs Adamek
