'In the City'
We are getting stuck into our 'In the City' theme for this term. The children are really enjoying learning more about London and its famous sights! In the afternoons we are reading 'A Walk in London' and developing our geographic skills through map work. In English we are now 'The Great Fire of London'by Emma Adams. The children are fascinated by the history of London!
As part of their home learning, children should be reading each day (with an adult or independently) and recording it in their home school diaries.
Children should also practise their times tables and related division facts each day. The ones they should focus on are those that they need to know to achieve their next Magical Maths badge.
It is also good for children to be practising their handwriting each day. They could practise writing and spelling the list of words on page 99 diaries. These are the words that children in year 2 need to know by the end of the year.
In addition to this children are expected to choose activities from the home learning sheet to do at home. You can choose what you do and when you do it! We would normally expect about 1 activity a week. When you have completed a task, record it in your home school diary and bring it into school to show your teacher and class.
Copies of the home learning sheets can be in the Home Learning section of the website.
