Welcome to Nightingales with Miss Parsons and Mrs Gomes. We are settling well into our new class. In Nightingales, we have had a busy term getting to know our new adults and the expectations of Year 2.
In English this term, we have started by looking at the narrative Mrs Armitage on Wheels. Then, we will be writing a recount about our trip to Chard Museum which we really enjoyed. Later on, we will be learning about non-chronological reports, instructions and persuasion. Our Mathematics focus currently is on place value. Understanding the value of a two-digit number and then being able to compare these numbers. Later on, we will move onto addition and subtraction.
Our topic this half term is travel and transport. This topic is History focused and we will be looking at how transport has changed over the years. After half term our topic is called China. This will have a Geography focus. For Science we are learning about everyday materials and healthy eating.
