Whissendine CE Primary School

Term 4 - Arise Dame... Arise Sir...

Well that is half of Year 2 done already! Time is, as ever, flying by.  


This term we are super busy.  Our topic is based on castles where we will be learning about the uses of castles, the different parts, how people lived in and around them and why they were designed the way they were.  We shall be looking at British monarchs and learning about timelines and dates.  

In our computing this term we focus on esafety.  We shall be learning how to use the internet and then creating rules for staying safe online.  Our RE this term continues with Judiasm where we will be learning some Jewish stories and discussing the morals in them.  


Our maths this term is all about FRACTIONS.  We shall be learning that fractions are parts of a whole.  We shall be linking fractions to our work in term 3 on multiplication and division.  The children will  be experts before long on 1/2, 1/4 and 1/3s!  They shall be exploring fractions of shapes, real objects and numbers. 




In literacy our big unit focuses on traditional tales.  There will be loads of drama, storytellings, alternative endings, games and writing.  It is such a fun literacy unit and the children will, no doubt, be super descriptive with their adjectives and adverbs! The new spelling programme launches in term 4.  We shall be having a particular focus on trying to improve our spellings and learning lots of new games to help.  



On top of all of that we have a multi-sports festival, a class trip (fingers crossed), learning the recorder for the Easter service and 4 Walkwise sessions.  (These are where the children are taught road safety by Tish Barnwell from Rutland County Council.)  The 7 weeks until Easter is going to fly by again I'm sure!
