Welcome back to the new school year, I hope you have had a wonderful Summer holiday!
Our topic for the This term is 'Beat Band Boogie' which is all about exploring music and sound. The children will be doing lots of music based activities, including listening to and comparing different styles of music, discussing how music makes them feel and also creating some music. The children will also be able to get involved with some scientific investigations about pitch and sound. We will also be studying ' The Singing Mermaid' by Julia Donaldson' in literacy. The children will be developing their understanding of the Story and the characters.
This term the children we will be preparing work for our Exhibition, I hope that you will come along and support us and see what we have been learning about.
Times tables are incredibly important and I would encourage you to help your child with these at home. In year 2 the children are expected to know their 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables. In year 3 the children are expected to know their 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables.
The children are currently learning spellings from the recommended spelling list for year 2 and 3. There will be a spelling test every Tuesday.
Children should be listened to read every night at home for about 10 minutes. When your child has finished their book please feel free to swap this in the library during wake up work time (before the register at 8:50 am).
