Spring Term in Ruby Class

Hello Ruby Class Class and Happy New Year.  I hope you and your families are all happy, healthy and safe. Things are a little bit different this Spring Term as the majority of you will be spending time learning remotely from home. The aim this term is to cover as many of the objectives you would have covered had you been in school to ensure that good progress is still made and you have access to a broad, creative and fun curriculum.

 

English

This term we will be studying the books, Jim and the Beanstalk by Raymond Briggs and The Minpins by Roald Dahl and Patrick Benson. We will be covering a range of Literacy genres including writing stories, nonchronological reports and persuasive writing and variety of different
language features.

Maths

This term we are going to be revising all areas of learning that we covered in the Autumn Term as well as introducing new learning in order to ensure we haven’t missed any areas of the curriculum at the end of Year 2. We will be looking at multiplication and division, geometry and fractions. Lessons will continue to take place on Google Classroom.

You can also keep practising on Hit the ButtonBBC Karate Cats, and Daily Ten.
