Year 2 – Jenner Class

Welcome to Jenner's class page.

Term 3

Our theme this term is the Victorians.

We are going to explore how they lived, what they ate from the richest to the poorest in society. 

We will also be visiting Woodbury park cemetery to listen to some stories about ordinary people and children who died and are buried there.

In literacy we will be reading and watching Oliver Twist and the children will be acting out some of the scenes as well as writing their own scripts.

Mathematics 

The subject will be taught every day to support children to bring their knowledge and understanding of mathematics together and apply it in context.

These main areas will be:

  • Multiplication and division;
  • Fractions
  • Interpret and construct simple pictograms, tally charts, block diagrams and tables.
  •  Estimate and measure length/height in any direction (m/cm); mass (kg/g);

All children need to regularly practise times tables at home, including understanding the related division facts as this underpins much of the mathematics curriculum. Please encourage your child to practice the 2, 5 and 10 times tables at home.

In science the children will be learning about sound and light and they will be actively participating in some exciting experiments.

Now the weather has turned colder, please can I ask that you name ALL items of clothing and encourage your children to recognize these labels, we have many pairs of gloves, P.E jumpers and unnamed cardigans in our lost property box.

Our class email is Jenner@thewellsfreeschool.co.uk

Please keep an eye out for my weekly emails, these will give you a brief overview of what the children have been learning each week along with ideas as to how to help and encourage your children at home.

You can also use this address to contact me regarding your child’s learning. Please note that while we endeavour to answer emails as soon as possible, we will not be able to answer these at the weekend or evenings/holidays.

Any other enquiries i.e. changes to collection arrangements, lost property, lunches, will need to be sent to the school office.
