What We Are Learning About - Autumn 2
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his
will in all you do and he will show you which path to take.”
In Religion, through the topic of Baptism the children will understand that through the sacrament we all called to a new way of life. We welcomed and initiated into the Catholic church and then become apart of God's family. We especially consider the promises and commitments that are made during Baptism.
Our sacramental programme continues in November as we celebrate the feast of Christ the King.
In Maths, we will be looking a Addition and Subtraction. In Year 2, children learnt to add and subtract two 2-digit numbers, including with exchanges. Throughout this block children build on that knowledge, working towards adding and subtracting 2-digit and 3-digit numbers with exchanges.
Useful Maths Websites:
In English, we will be looking at the book 'Stone Age Boy'. This is closely linked to our History topic which is about the Stone Age. The children will learn about what life was like during the Stone Age through this exciting texts. The children will learn about paragraphing, characterisation and further revision of punctuation. We will write a letter of thanks in character.
Useful English Websites:
In Science, the children will work scientifically on a variety of quick investigations and longer tasks to learn about rocks. This topic covers the properties and uses of rocks, the rock family, soils and finally fossils.
In History, the children will explore how life changed for people during different periods of the Stone Age, including the Early, Middle and New Stone Ages. They will cover why the period was called the Stone Age, and what archaeological evidence there is from the period, particularly in the form of artefacts and monuments. The main focus will be on the New Stone Age and how that contrasts with the earlier periods.
