Rockingham (Yr 2)
Welcome to Rockingham Class
In Rockingham class we have 29 wonderful year 2 children. The class is taught by Mrs Ross and Mrs Johnson and we are lucky enough to be supported by Mrs Want.
We had 2 brilliant terms learning all about London and Toys and Games and have now started a new theme!
This term we are travelling thousands of miles to the wonderful country ‘India’.
In English we will develop our skills at reading and writing non-chronological reports about Indian animals, as well as writing Indian stories and poetry. We have also set up an Indian restaurant in our role-play and will create menus and recipes for it.
In Maths we will work on our knowledge of the number system; ordering, partitioning and comparing numbers. We will develop our adding, subtracting, dividing and multiplying skills and look at 2D and 3D shapes. We will practise our measuring skills when weighing ingredients and take the temperature of different places. As well as applying our maths skills to help us solve problems about Indian animals.
We will learn about the geographical features of India, creating maps of the country and locating it using atlases and globes. We will look at the cities and villages in India and compare one Indian village to Ryhall.
As scientists we will develop our knowledge of how animals and humans grow and what they need to survive. We will also work scientifically to find out if we get faster as we grow.
During the term we will use computers to paint Rangoli patterns, research animals and create a life cycle of a tiger.
In RE we will learn about the importance of the Torah to Jews.
