Class 9 Year 2 2019 - 2020

Miss Mayers

Welcome to Class 9's homepage. 

What a fantastic start to the year!

We have an exciting half term together. We will begin the half term by learning the story of 'The Snail and the Whale'. The children will explore how the different settings within the story are created and described. We will then begin to learn the story of 'Dougal's Deep Sea Diary'. Throughout these stories the children will contine to use familiar and new punctuation correctly as well as expanded noun phrases to describe and specify. 

During our Maths lessons we will be deepening our understanding of addition and subtraction. The children will recall and use addition and subtraction facts to 20 and use related facts up to 100. They will continue to add and subtract a two digit number and ones; a two digit number and tens; two two-digit numbers; adding three one-digit numbers. The children will then apply their skills by solving problems before moving onto money and finding different combinations as well solving simple money problems. 

This half term our Geography project will be  'All Around the World'. In this unit, the children will be using maps, atlases and globes to identify the United Kingdom and its countries, the continents and oceans. We will be looking at the location of hot and cold areas of the world in relation to the Equator and the North and South Poles.We will also be exploring the lives of significant individuals such as Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus and Falcon Scott. 

Just a reminder, our P.E days will be on a Monday afternoon. 

Homework will be given out on a Friday and is due to be handed in the following Wednesday. Weekly spellings will be put into children's Spelling Practise books every Friday. It is very important that these are practised regularly alongside the Year 1 and 2 common exception words. A copy of which can be found in the files section of this page.

Further details of our topics and objectives for this half term can be found in the attached Curriculum Map. 

Many thanks for your continued support.
