Welcome to 2 Mars!
Autumn Term 2017
Welcome to the Autumn Term and we hope you and your child are looking forward to a great year of learning!
This term our history topic will be 'Toys from the Past'. We will look at how toys have changed over time as well as the lives of children. To enhance our learning we will visit the Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green. We will use this trip to inspire us to create our own toy museum in class.
In Science, our topic will be animals including humans. We will consider the basic needs of animals for survival as well as the importance of exercise and nutrition. We will also think about how animals grow up from babies into adults and consider how their needs change.
In English, we will start be writing our own stories about an animal found under the stairs and then write letters based on the book 'Dear Teacher'. We will also be looking at reports, poetry and instructions.
In Maths, we will be securing our knowledge of place value which will include ordering and comparing numbers. We will also be working through different methods of addition and subtraction as well as lots of work on telling the time.
We are really looking forward to a great year with the class, and we hope you and your child are too!
If you have any queries or questions please do not hesitate to catch us or make an appointment via the office.
