Class 2 Summer curriculum letter

This Summer term our main topic is food, farms and farming.  We shall be looking at how and where our food is grown and how it reaches our plates.  We have a visit to Tesco bakery planned for later in the summer when we shall be making our own bread!

In science we are investigating our senses, involving lots of practical work and investigation.

In Art and DT we are creating a variety of moving pictures.  

In literacy we are currently reading and writing fantasy stories.  Later in the term we shall be choosing a favourite author and reading and discussing a selection of their work.

In numeracy we continue to cover all aspects of the maths curriculum – number and place value, shape space and measure, calculating and problem solving.   We ensure that pupils use their growing mathematical skills to solve problems and apply them to everyday situations.

In RE our topic is ‘Talking about God’ – an opportunity to think about and discuss many of those difficult questions.

In PE the children are working on their athletics skills with Miss Henn and tennis skills with Mr Duffy.

You can continue helping your child by hearing them read their books regularly and by helping them to learn their spellings.  They should be able to tell you what they have been covering in maths if you would like to support in this area.  Please ask if you ever have any queries about your child’s progress.
