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.
This term we will be finding out all about our capital city in our theme ‘London’. We will begin by roleplaying a trip to the big city! The children will get to ride the London Underground, view the sites of the city from the London eye, watch street performers in Covent Garden and eat a picnic in Hyde Park.
In Literacy we will develop our reading and writing skills by researching London Landmarks, creating our own fact files, describing different London locations, recounting our trip to the city and reading and writing stories set in London and following. Whilst learning about the history of the Great Fire of London we will write diaries, newspaper reports and instructions to make Pudding Lane bread.
In Maths we will be working on our knowledge of the number system; ordering, partitioning and comparing numbers. We will also develop our addition, subtraction, dividing and multiplying skills and be looking at 2D and 3D shapes. We will then apply our skill to solve tricky mathematical problems about London and develop our money skills in our London souvenir shop.
We are also going to be learning about the geographical features of London and comparing them to Ryhall. In Science we will be learning about materials, their properties and how they can change due to force or heat. Our DT skills will be put to the test when we construct Tudor Homes from the time of the great fire and make Pudding Lane bread. During the term we will develop our computing skills by researching landmarks and creating fact files.
In RE we will be learning about the Christian Creation Story, We will retell the story through art and drama and reflect upon why it is important to care for the World
