Saturn Class - Year 2
Welcome to our Class learning page.
This Autumn, our theme is ‘Can party food be healthy?’
During this unit, we will be exploring healthy eating and exercise in Science. We will investigate food safety and how to handle it properly .
As part of our DT we will design party hats and decorations for our own party lunch in the class.
Alongside party planning we will be identifying and classifying materials and discovering how materials can change, by squashing, bending, twisting, stretching, heating and cooling.
In RE we will be looking at sacred places and celebrations around the world.
Once we have successfully explored party food we will graduate as ‘Healthy Food Party Planners’.
Our Maths learning focus
We will be learning to develop our knowledge and understanding of numbers by reading and writing them. We will also be recognising the place value of each digit and comparing numbers. Finally we will add and subtract numbers and solve reasoning number problems.
Our English learning focus
We will be exploring our class novel ‘Jamil’s Clever Cat’ by Fiona French and focusing on developing our understanding of stories from another culture. We will focus on spelling our new set of Year 2 words and learn how to use writing tools such as commas and conjunctions to write our own version of a traditional tale.
