Pott Shrigley Class 2 2017 - 2018

Miss Smith

Welcome to Class 2!

We are already in the full swing of things this school year with the 6 weeks holidays (almost) a distant memory away! 

We have begun the year by getting stuck in to our topic 'The Maya Civilization'. We are exploring this ancient civilization, and are particularly interested in their culture, belief systems and way of life. To complement our topic work, we are looking at a range of folktale stories from other cultures in our literacy work. We have read and re-told some African tales already, and will soon be writing our own cultural story.

In numeracy, we are recapping place value and understanding how much this forms the basis for our ability to calculate using the four number operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We are looking carefully at individual calculations and are determining the best method for solving them: either mentally or using a more formal written method.

Please help us with our maths by playing lots of times tables games (up to 12 x 12) at home.  

In Science, we have begun our topic on 'materials' and we will be focussing on the properties of different materials. We will be using lots of scientific vocabulary to describe and classify different materials.  

Please familiarise yourself with our Long Term Plan (attached). You can see the variety of interesting topics we have in store for the year ahead!

Don't forget - 

  • Homework/spellings are given and collected every Monday
  • PE kits should be left in school for the half term.
  • Reading should be encouraged at home daily.
  • Forest schools kit should be worn every Friday.
  • Swimming kit is needed for a Tuesday (Years 4 and 5 only).

Happy Autumn Term!

Miss Smith and Mrs Murdock
