Welcome to Swallow Class!

Mr Thompson, Mrs Barnes and Mrs Valentine

 

Spring 1 

 This term we will be working from home. All learning will be posted to seesaw, if you have lost your seesaw account details please contact: Year2@gatcombepark.portsmouth.sch.uk

We appreciate all of the hard work parents and carers are putting in at home and would like to thank you for your continued support.

 

This term we will be learning how to add and subtract two 2 digit number in maths, revising number bonds and other number facts. We will then move onto multiplication. In English, we are reading the book 'Meerkat Mail'. Links to all related resources can be found on the seesaw timetable, which is updated each day. In Curriculum we are learning about 'The Great Fire of London'. The children will explore this topic through History and Art. In Science we are learning all about animals. We will use an enquiry based approach to understand how animals live and the ways in which they are suited to different environments.

 

Please continue to support your child with reading 1:1 at home each day! This is vital to ensuring that they do not fall behind.

 

Best wishes 


Mr Thompson
