Creators Class - Year 2
Welcome to Creators Class!
Welcome to our page! We are a very enthusiastic class of Year 2 learners. This term our topic this term is 'Fire! Fire!' and we are learning all about The Great Fire of London. We have started learning all about this significant event in British history by reading a non-ficiton text in our reading lessons, which we are really enjoying!
Learning of the Week
This week in writing we will be learning to use subordinating conjunctions and we will be looking at examples of non-chronological reports, so that we can write our own about 'The Great Fire'. We are going tobegin writing the start of our reports by the end of the week and will be trying to use as much topic vocabulary as we can to make our writing rich and interesting.
In our art lessons we will be looking at artwork that was created to show what happened during The Great Fire of London and we will be considering what they make use think and feel.
In history we will continue to look at the timeline of events which occured during The Great Fire of London, which will help us to write our non-chronological reports in writing lessons next week.
In Geography we will look at a map of London that shows the capital today and another map which shows what the city looked like in 1666. We will be considering what has changed and why.
In maths, we are continuing to learn about addtion and subtraction methods and will apply these to the context of dealing with money.
Extra useful information:
- P.E. is on Tuesdays and Fridays, so please make sure children have their kits in with them on these days. Please can children have warm jogging trousers or leggings for the cold winter months, since we do still need to go outside for our P.E. lessons.
- Parents evenings are on 19/11 and 20/11. I look forward to seeing as many parents as possible at these meetings.
- This term will be the KS1 Christmas concert, so many children in Creators class will have lines to learn. I'm so excited to see them all shining on the stage!
- Please can all children have an art apron in school to protect their uniform. Aprons can be old clothing such as oversized shirts or blouses (mum/dad/older sibling hand-me-downs) and if possible include sleeves.
- If you'd like to meet with Miss Perrett about anything regarding your child, please arrange an appointment after school, since in the mornings teachers need to prepare for the day and as soon as the children arrive at 8.40 they need to have their full-attention on the class. You can also speak to staff in the school office, who will jot down any messages and pass them on to Miss Perrett.
