Welcome to Grasshopper class.
Our teacher is Miss Barnett and our year group TA is Mrs Pitchacaren.
Welcome to our class page. Grasshoppers are keen learners and we always try our best. We are looking forward to lots of learning in Year 2.
In Grasshopper Class we love listening to stories as well as reading with a friend or to ourselves. This term our class book is The BFG by Rolh Dalh. We are excited to for our school trip to see this too. Grasshoppers are encouraged to read 15 minutes a day, however, on Wednesday evenings, read as much as you can! Buster's Book club minutes are recorded and we would love to win the trophy in Celebration Assembly on Friday's!
We had a fantastic time using adverbs to describe how we added various disgusting, deadly ingredients to our rotten mixtures. Along with adverbs, were used adjectives and time connectives in our recipes too.
Term 5 will be colourful and fragrant time for our creative minds in all of our subjects!
We will be revisiting and revising place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in maths. Ask an adult to see if you can achieve your next wrist band for our times tables.
In writing we will be developing our editing skills on a traditional tale, Jack and the Beanstalk. We will also be writing our own stories using FANTASTICS and BOOMTASTICS.
Taking our topic outside for Science, we will be digging, planting and caring for a variety of plants. Please remember to bring in your wellies for the whole term so we can go outside as much as possible.
During geography this term we will be asking our own questions and discovering the four countries that make up the United Kingdom and the flowers that represent each country.
Remember to continue to read as much as possible and climb up those colour bands.
Our PE days will be Tuesday and Friday. Please remember to bring in your PE kits for these days.
Wriggle and Crawl
Our last topic for the year will be Wriggle and Crawl! We will spend time outside everyday, observing the wonderful world around Chartham Primary School, looking at plants and animals, discovering how things change and why.
Remember to bring in your wellies and coats, we will be going outside come rain or shine!
In science, we will look at habitats and what animals have to help them in each environment. During topic we will be looking at different countries and the differences and similarities between them and Chartham.
We still love reading! Remember to bring in your reading records every day and try to read as much as you can at home too! Every Wednesday we try our hardest to read as much as we can to win Buster's Book Club award. Our set target is 15 minutes but can you read for longer?
We are looking to achieve some more wrist bands for our times tables and badges for our handwriting. Keep practising these at home to reach them!
