Autumn Term 2019

 

   smiley   Welcome to Year 2.  smiley   

The children have settled well into year 2 and are becoming familiar with the routines of their new class.  

 This term our Foundation Phase umbrella topic is 'Stories, rhymes and special times'.

In our class we will be reading many traditional stories and our topic focus will be Castles.

In line with the Curriculum of Wales, the children will contribute to the weekly planning of the topic under the 6 AOLEs  and will be encouraged to become independent learners. 

The children have started to plan their topic already through expressing their 'wonderings'. For example:

I wonder why...... Some castles were wood and others were stone? Castles had water around them? Castles were built on a hill? Castles had thin windows? The maids looked sad? There were layers of walls? 

Therefore, we will be researching the three main types of castles and why they changed , finding out about the different parts of a castle and exploring castle life and the jobs that people did. We will hopefully be going on a visit to Cardiff Castle too! 

 

Our Literacy Focus this term is stories with a familiar setting. We will be reading the traditional fairy tale stories such as Jack and the Beanstalk, Sleeping Beauty and Rapunzel. We will be developing our writing skills through retelling these stories, writing our own stories based in a castle and through reading and altering Nursery Rhymes.

Children will also be developing their reading and comprehension skills through reading non fiction texts on Castles.

 

In Maths we will be learning to count and recognise numbers to 1000, add and subtract numbers to 20 +, count in groups of 2, 5, 10 and read analogue and digital times for half past and quarter past.

We will incorporate using analogue and digital time into our role play corner which has been set up as a Castle.

 

We will concentrate on developing our Literacy and Numeracy skills through our topic work.

 

We will use Welsh incidentally throughout the day, play Helpwr Heddiw games and learn topic based vocabulary.

 

 

Home task : Please make a model of someone who worked in a castle to hang in our book corner.

Summer Term 2017.

 

I hope you all enjoyed the Easter break and are ready to work hard for your final term in the Infant department.  I'm sure you will enjoy exploring our topic for this term -  under the sea. 

 

We will read great stories including stories from The Lighthouse Keeper collection and explore the rhyme and alliteration in Commotion in the Ocean.

We will use I pads and non fiction books to learn about sea creatures and create fact files from what we find out. This terms writing focus will be letter writing, writing instructions and poetry. 

Dewch i ddarllen yn y corner Cymreig - ddarllen ar lan y mor, ar y traeth a llawer mwy! 

 

We will continue to build on all mathematical skills developed this year with a focus on measuring, weighing, multiplication and division. There will be many opportunities to apply these skills across the curriculum and through exploring the outdoors.

 

You will be going for a walk around Beddau, comparing our village to Newton , identifying natural and human features and following and making maps. Make sure you have a coat in school or a hat if the sun decides to shine so we can continue to make the most of the outdoors. 

 

Finally, you will be planning activities for our enhanced provision and telling me what you would like to learn about! 

 

 

 

 

Home Task.

Please could you help your child make a 2D or 3D sea creature that can be hung in our book corner. You can use any material you wish and the make it as colourful and sparkly as you like. Have fun! 

 

Homework

Please continue to support your child but encourage them to complete as much as possible independently. Thank you.

 

 

National Tests. 

A huge well done to every member of our class You all tried your best and that is all we wanted.

The children have worked extremely well all year , I'm very proud of them all. 👍👍👍👍👍😀😀😀😀😀😀

International Week. Week beginning 19th June.

 

Guten tag! Let's learn about a different country! During international week we will be learning about GERMANY. We will be looking at the culture, customs, food, costumes, language and famous landmarks of Germany. On Friday the 23rd you may dress in the German colours of red,black and gold or you can dress as someone from Germany. Why not make a simple German flag and pin it to an old t- shirt! 

 

 

 

 

 

Spring Term 2017.

Welcome back and a happy new year Class 4! I hope you enjoyed the Christmas break and are ready for an exciting term. Our topic for this term is The Great Fire of London. We will be learning about London in 1666 and comparing it to London today.

We will be investigating materials to see why the houses burned so quickly in the fire and finding out about the fire equipment used to fight the blaze at that time.

 

Activity Planning. 

The children have had input into planning the activities we do this term and have come up with some very good ideas. I loved their idea of a trip to London but I think that will be impossible due to cost and their age!

Another suggestion was a trip to the fire station, I will organise that as soon as possible and send details home. 

 

Home task.

Make a model of a London landmark. Research and write facts about the chosen landmark to be displayed alongside the model. Happy researching and making! 👍😀😀

 

Literacy focus.

In reading, we will continue to develop our phonological awareness and apply sounds to our spelling. The children will have opportunity to read fiction stories based on dragons and will read non fiction texts about The Great Fire of London. We will continue to work on developing our comprehension skills too. It is important that children read as much as possible at home to reinforce strategies taught in school. 

During circle time we will develop our speaking and listening skills and the children will be encouraged to speak with confidence and extend their answers. The children will also be researching our topic with their group and presenting back to the class.

In writing, we will focus on writing leaflets and diaries. We will be reading and writing extracts of Samuel Pepys' diary and writing personal diary logs. The children will be newspaper reporters and write newspaper articles too about the fire.

 

Numeracy focus.

We will continue to work on addition and subtraction to 100 this term.  In our classroom bakery the children will learn about fractions, finding  halves and quarters. They will find the total of different coin collections and practice giving the correct change from £1 and £2. The children will be introduced to the concept of multiplication and will begin to learn their 2,3,4,5,10 times tables and use them in practical situations. They will use grams  and kilograms to weigh classroom objects and when following a recipe to bake cookies for our class.

Autumn Term 2016smiley

 

Welcome to Year 2. smiley

The children have all settled well and have worked very hard over the last few weeks, producing some work to be proud of.

Our topic this term is Castles.  We will be researching the three main types of castles, finding out about castles in Wales and going on a visit to Cardiff Castle.

 

Our Literacy Focus this term is stories with a familiar setting. We will be reading the traditional fairy tale stories such as Jack and the Beanstalk, Sleeping Beauty and Rapunzel. We will be developing our writing skills through retelling these stories, writing our own stories based in a castle and through reading and altering Nursery Rhymes. 

Children will also be developing their reading and comprehension skills through reading non  fiction texts on Castles.

 

In Maths we will be learning to count and recognise numbers  to 100 and beyond, add and subtract numbers to 20 +, count in groups of 2, 5, 10 and read analogue and digital times for half past and quarter past.

We will incorporate using analogue and digital time into our role play corner which has been set up as a Castle.

  

We will concentrate on developing our Literacy and Numeracy skills through our topic work.

To develop the children's knowledge and understanding of the world, they will investigate the properties of different materials, find out why castles changed from wood to stone and locate Welsh Castles on a map of Wales.

In Art/ DT children will design and make a coat peg label and experiment with embroidery.

We will use Welsh incidentally throughout the day, play Helpwr Heddiw games and learn topic based vocabulary.

Visit to Cardiff Castle.

 

 

The children had a wonderful time exploring Cardiff Castle. They had a guided tour to learn about what each room in the castle was used for and they took part in a workshop about weapons. The children were also very lucky to see a Remembrance Ceremony that was being held in the castle and they behaved impeccably. A big well done to my class!

Practical multiplication.Making food for our class Bakery.

Spring Term 2016.

Welcome back and a happy new year Class 4! I hope you enjoyed the Christmas break and are ready for an exciting term. We have lots of fun activities planned!

 

Our topic for this term is The Great Fire of London. We will be learning about London in 1666 and comparing it to London today.

We will be investigating materials to see why the houses burned so quickly in the fire and finding out about the fire equipment used to fight the blaze at that time.

 

Literacy focus.

In reading, we will continue to develop our phonological awareness and apply sounds to our spelling. The children will have opportunity to read fiction stories based on dragons and will read non fiction texts about The Great Fire of London. We will continue to work on developing our comprehension skills too. It is important that children read as much as possible at home to reinforce strategies taught in school. 

During circle time we will develop our speaking and listening skills and the children will be encouraged to speak with confidence and extend their answers. The children will also be researching our topic with their group and presenting back to the class.

In writing, we will focus on writing diaries. We will be reading and writing extracts of Samuel Pepys' diary and writing personal diary logs. The children will be newspaper reporters and write newspaper articles too about the fire.

 

Numeracy focus.

We will continue to work on addition and subtraction to 100 this term.  In our classroom bakery the children will learn about fractions, finding  halves and quarters. They will find the total of different coin collections and practice giving the correct change from £1 and £2. The children will be introduced to the concept of multiplication and will begin to learn their 2,3,4,5,10 times tables and use them in practical situations. They will use grams  and kilograms to weigh classroom objects and when following a recipe to bake cookies for our class.

 

Trip to Fire Station - We plan to visit Treforest fire station and look at the fire equipment used today. We will learn what to do if there is a fire in our home and learn how to keep safe.

 

Home task- Make a model of a London landmark. Research and write facts about the chosen landmark to be displayed alongside the model. Happy researching and making! 👍😀😀

Welcome to Miss Payne's Class Page!

Croeso I ddosbarth Miss Payne!

 

Autumn Term 2015
 
Welcome to Year 2. The children have all settled well in their new class and have worked very hard over the last few weeks, producing some work to be proud of.

Our topic this term is Castles.  We will be researching the three main types of castles, finding out about castles in Wales and going on a visit to Cardiff Castle.

 

 

 

 
Our Literacy Focus this term is stories with a familiar setting. We will be reading the traditional fairy tale stories such as Jack and the Beanstalk, Sleeping Beauty and Rapunzel. We will be developing our writing skills through retelling these stories, writing our own stories based in a castle and through reading and altering Nursery Rhymes. 
 Children will also be developing their reading and comprehension skills through reading non  fiction texts on Castles.

 

In Maths we will be learning to count and recognise numbers  to 100 and beyond, add and subtract numbers to 20, count in groups of 2, 5, 10 and read analogue and digital times for half past and quarter past.

We will incorporate using analogue and digital time into our role play corner which is a Castle.

  

We will concentrate on developing our Literacy and Numeracy skills through our topic work.

To develop the children's knowledge and understanding of the world they will investigate the properties of different materials, find out why castles changed from wood to stone and locate Welsh Castles on a map of Wales.

In Art/ DT children will design and make a coat peg label and experiment with embroidery.

We will use Welsh incidentally throughout the day, play Helpwr Heddiw games and learn topic based vocabulary.

 

                      Home task : Draw and label a Motte and Bailey Castle. Write 5 facts.
