Literacy and Topic

These are now linked topics, giving the children a greater opportunity to apply what has been taught in a wider range of ways.

The key question for Class 2 this half term is: Where do fairy tales come from?

We will be using a range of stories from around the world to identify key features and to also help us learn about and locate different countries.

We will also be doing some historical research into the authors of some of the most famous traditional tales. 

Maths

The focus in Mathis this half term will be on measurement.  We will be focussing on length, height, perimeter and money.

Curriculum Expectations

Measurement: Length and Height Measure and begin to record lengths and heights.

Compare, describe and solve practical problems for: lengths and heights (for example, long/short, longer/shorter, tall/short, double/half)

Choose and use appropriate standard units to estimate and measure length/height in any direction (m/cm); mass (kg/g); temperature (°C); capacity (litres/ml) to the nearest appropriate unit, using rulers, scales, thermometers and measuring vessels. Compare and order lengths, mass, volume/capacity and record the results using >, < and =.

Choose and use appropriate standard units to estimate and measure length/height in any direction (m/cm);
