Our Autumn Term Journey



In English we are reading the story The Owl who was afraid of the dark. We have focused on adjectives, nouns, verbs and adverbs to make our writing more interesting. We are hoping to write some fantastic pieces of writing about the dark.



In Maths we are learning about Place Value. We know how to use maths equipment like dienes, place value counters and numicon to represent numbers. We have worked hard on greater than, less than and equals. As well as our 5s, 10s and 2 time table. 



In Science we are learning about living things and their habitats. We know the difference between dead, living and never alive. We have investigated different local habitats and have focused on microhabitats.



Throughout our topic lessons we have been thinking about the question "what makes our school grounds its home?" We have learnt our left and right and are becoming more comfortable using directional language. We have even designed our own local map to help us navigate around school. We have even made our own binoculars to spot some owls on our school property.


Our unit this half term is "Who is a Muslim and what do they believe?" We have spent time discussing Muslims and their beliefs. We have dug deeper into learning about Shahada and Allah's 99 names.


We have been learning about e-safety in our computing lessons, we know how to keep safe online. We have also learnt how to search safely on a search tool and send emails to Miss Gini and Miss Johnson - how cool is that?


Our unit this half term is Marvellous Me. We have discussed what makes us special and created a paper plate of our faces to show how we are all different. We have also read a story called The Worry Monster who eats up all our worries. We designed and created our own Worry Monsters to help us with anything we are worried about during y2.
