Welcome to a new Year in Chestnut Class! I am very excited and happy to start with this class- we have had a super first day and they are all ready to work hard and have an exciting and fun term!
Our topic this term is "Earth and Beyond". We will be learning about the Space Race and the significant individuals who helped make space travel a reality and those who experienced it. We will also be learning about the planets themselves. Through this topic in English we will be writing biographies of these individuals, non fiction booklets about the planets and we will also be looking at 3 texts by Oliver Jeffers which focus on The Earth and Space. In our Art and DT work we will be doing Planet Art, designing Mars Rovers and making alien spaceships! Our Computing work this term will focus first on e-safety then we will be looking at and exploring Google Earth and the ESA websites. Our Science topic is back on Earth where we will be looking at habitats and food chains of different animals. Please see the below link 'Year 2' for our full curriculum overview of the year.
We will be sending reading books and spellings home in the next few weeks once we have worked out exactly what each child needs. Bug club books and phonics games will also be set. Your Numbots log ins and passwords are still the same so you can continue with this straight away.
PE days- Chestnut PE days are Tuesday and Thursday.
