Year 2

We are Woodpeckers, Finches and Owls

Our topic this half term is "Open the Door.  In English we will be launching our topic using a poem called "The Door" by Miroslav Holub.  We will be using this to stimulate their imaginations and to create some artwork.  After this we will be inspiring the children using the book The Minpins by Roald Dahl opening their eyes to a whole new world of mystical creatures on which we will base other areas of their learning.



In Science the children will be looking at plants and experimenting for the Minpins the best conditions for plants to grow in.  In Maths we will be covering more on place value, addition and subtraction and also extending our knowledge of telling the time.  



See this half terms' Newsletter for further information.

If your child would like to work on an optional homework challenge, please see *here* to see what inspires them.   Please make sure your child brings their completed project in to school by Monday 29th January, and we will display and celebrate their hard work.
