Chestnut Class (Year 2)

I hope you all had a good half term break and are ready for these very busy few weeks!

Thank you for all the reading and spelling practice you’re doing at home, it’s making a huge learning to the children’s learning.

Our new topic is Weather.

In Science we will learn about different types of weather. We will design, make and use rain gauges and consider why we have seasons.

This will link to Geography were we will look at weather around the world and how it affects living in different climates.

In French we will learn basic weather vocabulary.

In DT we are working with sheet materials to produce moving pictures. Hopefully Incy Wincy Spider will climb up a spout or lightening will appear when ‘I hear thunder…’.

In Literacy we will continue with phonics and grammar, but our writing focus will be weather poetry and report writing.

Number will remain a focus in maths, with more addition and subtraction. we will also be learning about multiplication as repeated addition and considering 2 and 3D shapes, length and fractions.


We will of course also be busy with Christmas.

Our Nativity this year is Babushka, more information to follow shortly!

Our RE is Christmas. Why was it such good news?

We are also going to having a trip to the Judges Lodgings to celebrate a Victorian Christmas and will be holding our annual Christmas Party.

A busy half term!
