Welcome to Beech class! It is so good to see everyone back at school after such a long time away! We are looking forward to another really good year in Beech class and we hope you all managed to have a good Summer break and are excited and raring to go for the new school year!
In English this term we will be learning how to write different non-fiction texts including fact-files and information texts. We will get the chance to look at historical figures related to our enquiry work. We will be using a range of texts and there will be a particular focus on developing our phonics knowledge. We will also think about rhyming words and try to write our own poems.
In maths we are going to build upon our place value knowledge from year 1 and make sure that we can read and write numbers to 100 in numerals and words. We will learn to recognise the place value in 2-digit numbers which will also enable us to compare and order numbers from 0 to 100. We will also develop our counting skills including calculating one more and one less for every 2-digit number.
This term, we will be completing two enquiries. The first is our historical enquiry where we will be learning about how the history of flight has changed over time. At the end of term, as part of our RE enquiry, we will be learning about the Muslim faith and developing our understanding of Muslim beliefs.
