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 have had 3 brilliant terms learning all about London, Toys and Games and India and have now started a new theme!
This term our theme is ‘Homes and Gardens’. We will be learning all about houses from the past and homes from around the world as well as becoming budding gardeners growing our own plants and planting our class’ apple tree in the school orchard.
In Literacy we will be writing setting descriptions of different fairy tale houses and letters from our unique new homes. We will help the local garden centre by creating adverts for plant food and waterproof wellies as well as writing instructions to grow plants and make vegetable soup and explaining how a bean grows. Throughout the term we will be improving our vocabulary, grammar and punctuation skills when writing and editing our work
In Maths we will be helping Gary the Gardener with his tricky maths problems. We will develop our skills at adding and subtracting mentally and using written methods. We will investigate fractions and learn to tell the time to 5 minutes.
As scientists we will develop our knowledge of plants and how they grow. We will set up experiments to investigate plants and learn how to conduct fair tests and record our findings.
In RE we will be learning about the Easter story, its important events and how these impacts on the lives of Christians.
This term we are learning about healthy living. We will learn about eating a balanced diet and reducing our sugar intake. We will become ‘sugar detectives’ identifying which foods contain lots of sugar. We will design a sugar free packed lunch and make a healthy vegetable soup. We will also collect and display the foods we eat in pictograms and bar charts.
