Foxes (Year 2 W)


Welcome back, Foxes!

I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas break and are rested, eager and ready to learn in 2019! This half-term our topic is: The Snail. Matisse’s work will inspire our learning over the next 6 weeks, where we will spend time investigating minibeasts, their habitats and lifecycles alongside identifying and classifying groups in the wider animal kingdom. We will produce non-fiction information texts to demonstrate our learning and will all become news reporters, learning and discussing the features of newspapers before writing our own articles! In Maths, our focus will move multiplication and division, focusing on groups of 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. In RE we will look at celebrations, answering questions such as: ‘Is it important to celebrate the New Year?’.

On this page you will find:

   - The home learning grid for Spring 1 half-term
