This Term's Topics
From Field to ForkThe Owl who was afraid of the dark/Fire
Welcome to Year 2!
Our first topic this year is "Field to Fork." We will be exploring the journey our food takes from it's source to our plate. This will also involve looking at the parts of plants we eat, how we require a balanced diet and health and exercise. During this half term we will also take part in the Wold's Largest Lesson which involves the children looking at global issues such as equality, sustainability and eradicating poverty.
After half term our topic will centre around the book "The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark" by Jill Tomlinson. This allows the children to explore the history of Guy Fawkes, fire, explore the Great Fire of London and the story of Christmas. We will also look at nocturnal animals and use the opportunity to complete some non-fiction report writing.
Class 7 Home Learning
Please practise spelling, times tables and reading each week and have fun selecting activities from the homework grid to be brought into school. One activity is due in every 2 weeks.
This year we will send spellings to be learnt each week. Class 7 will receive these on a Tuesday to be tested the following week. There will also be a reading comprehension for you to share with your child. There is no expectation that these are completed in one go.
Weblinks for homework can be found on the Robert Ferguson Primary School class news page www.rferguson.org
Reading should be encouraged as a daily activity whenever possible.
