Welcome to Class 2
This half term our topic is called 'The Lorax'.
During Literacy lessons we will be looking at The Lorax by Dr Suess, as this is the main topic of of this half term. We will be doing a 3 week storytelling block focusing on character descriptions, setting descriptions, recounts from the points of view of a character & innovated story writing. We will also look at Limericks and creating new words and meanings. In the final week we will be looking at Persuasive writing – writing in POV of The Lorax to the Once-ler..
We are going to continue to develop our mathematical knowledge this half term. We are continuing to look at all elements of maths including addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will also be using and applying our skills through problem solving sessions.
As our topic is 'Plants and living things', we will be completing lots of different Science experiments involving changing of materials.
In R.E. we will be looking at how do Christians make a difference in Cornwall?
Exploring how colour and textures are used. Create the same scene from the Lorax in both colour and black and white as a comparison to using materials. Design your own Lorax World with a partner (link to BLP).
This half term we are going to learn basic computer skills and complete some simple programming and algorithms using apps on iPads. We are also going to write a set of instructions for a partner to complete a simple algorithm.
