Autumn Term 2
Our topic for this half term is "All Around the World". The children will be travelling the world through stories from different countries. They will be learning about the physical features of each country they visit and will produce some writing for different purposes based on what they find out.
Children will continue to use the reading scheme this half term. They will have the opportunity to change their books by themselves (with a little adult supervision!) as often as they are ready to. When children are ready to change book bands, they just need to have this checked by an adult.
Children will continue with daily phonics sessions. This half term we will be embedding phase 5 alternative graphemes before moving on to learning spelling rules in phase 6. They will also be learning the Year 2 common exception words.
Weekly homework will consist of reading and spelling and Maths. Spelling and Maths homework will be set each Monday, to be completed by the following Monday. There will also be some longer projects based on our topic work.
PE days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Children need to have their indoor and outdoor kit with them, especially with our current changeable weather!

Autumn Term 1 2017
The title for this half term was Once Upon a Time. We used Fairy Tales to inspire the children’s imaginations before looking at Castles and Medieval history in Norwich and the rest of the UK. The children will be mapped locations, tested materials and tried out medieval food and sports.
