Farthing Wood

Welcome to Year 2! Our class name is the Farthing Wood, which is a setting that appears in the story by Colin Dann. We love to read stories, especially ones that lead us into magical and interesting places! We also love to find out about how things have changed over time. This half term during story time, we are reading George’s Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl and Mr Majeika by Humphrey Carpenter. In reading lessons, we will be focussing on reading extracts and then retrieving information from what we have read. We will be using the skill of skimming and scanning to help us to do this. In maths, we will be working on place value, partitioning, adding and subtracting. We will also be working on our 2 x table and doubles up to 20! In topic this half term, we are going to studying history, science and ICT. We will also be doing some artwork! In history, we are learning all about Guy Fawkes and the gunpowder plot. PE with Mr Sidebottom will be every Tuesday – remember your PE kits! Our library sessions will be on a Thursday. Don’t forget to bring you library book back so that you can have it changed every week. Every Wednesday, we will be singing with Mr Taylor. There are so many fantastic songs to learn! To help you with your learning in school, remember to read as often as you can and bring your reading books back to school on a regular basis to be changed. Also, keep practising your spellings. Spelling tests happen every Monday and they are out of 10. You could also practise your 2x, 5x and 10x tables. Let’s all work hard and enjoy learning together! Mr Shaw & Mrs Whelpdale
