In Mathematics we will be developing our calculation skills. We will be learning how to add and subtract 2 digit numbers using tens and units, multiply numbers in the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables as well as learning about 2D and 3D shapes.
In Science we will be learning about habitats and food chains.
In History lessons we will be learning about the expedition of Ernest Shakleton.
In Geography lessons we will be looking at the continents and oceans of the world. We will be investigating similarities and differences between Liverpool, Australia and Antarctica. We will look at weather and temperatures of each area
In Art we will complete some observational drawings following a trip to the Liverpool waterfront. We will create some aboriginal drawings of animals native to Australia and then we will create an Antarctic inspired piece featuring a penguin.
In PE lessons we will be working with the Beth Tweddle Foundation to develop our gymnastic skills.
In Music we will be listening to music related to the topic as well as rehearsing for our festive production "Christmas Has Started"
In Computing we will be developing our skills to import images and text into a document. We will be using i pads to create pictures on pic collage.

Wednesday - Spelling and Reading
Thursday - Spelling and Reading
Friday - Spelling, Reading, English or Mathematics
The children will be tested on their spellings every Tuesday morning. After the spelling test we will write your child's score at the top of their spelling sheet and any incorrect spellings will be highlighted so you can continue to practise them at home.
Your child must have their book bag with their reading book and homework book in school with them everyday.
Swimming Lessons and P.E.
P.E. lessons take place each Tuesday and Thursday.
The children will take part in Swimming lessons every Tuesday (beginning after Christmas)
The children will need the following items for their swimming lessons:
Girls: a towel, a one-piece swimming costume and swimming cap.
Boys: a towel, swimming trunks (not shorts) and a swimming cap.
The boys must wear proper swimming trunks for safety reasons: swimming shorts are not permitted in the pool. Girls are not allowed to wear earrings so please remove earrings at home to save them getting lost or avoid any difficulties removing them. All children must wear a cap. It would be much appreciated if girls could wear their hair in bobbles so they can be tucked inside the swimming cap easily. Children do not need arm bands or swimming goggles.
Please ensure that they have their full kit in school throughout the term.
Thank you for your continued support. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Class Two team.
