Autumn Term 1

Our Topic is....

 

"Singing in the Rain"

 

 

In this fun topic we will be learning about the weather, water and rainbows. We will explore where rain comes from, how we get fresh water and what makes a rainbow! We will be measuring rainfall and comparing climates, exploring the properties of water and investigating how it travels and moves. We will look at materials that can keep us dry and repel water. We will talk about how important water is to keep us healthy and how we can look after our precious water supply and care for our environment. 

 

Pupil Voice - If you have any ideas or suggestions for things that you would like to learn about, connected to this topic then please email me at year2@stdavidsprm.cardiff.sch.uk 

I look forward to hearing from you. :)

Literacy

 

How can you help your child at home?

* Read your school book daily. Talk about the story / plot/ characters. Answer questions related to the text. Predict what might happen or write a new, different ending to the story!

*Keep a diary. What did you do today?

*Practice your handwriting- Can you join your letters? Write your name. Write a letter to a friend or loved one. Write a card. Write a shopping list.  

*Write a short imaginative story. Re -read what you have written- did you remember to add full stops and start your sentences with a capital letter? Read your story out loud using expression. Can you improve your story?

* Talk about your day with a friend / adult. 

* Play fun games such as 'Guess who' or 'What am I?', using questions to predict the answer. 

* Give or listen to instructions to create something new or find buried treasure......etc.

 

Read Write Inc

Read Write Inc is a scheme we use to practice learning phonics, spelling, reading and writing. 

 

 

 

 We will be completing tasks in class to explore, learn and use these patterns. If your child is able to find words or write sentences with words that follow the pattern we would be pleased to share these with the class.
