Welcome to Y2SH
We hope that you have had a great Christmas break and are ready for what’s coming next…
For the Spring term our topic is ‘Pit Boots and a Snap Tin’
Before Christmas we opened our new talking tub. The children asked some excellent questions which has decided what we will learn. Some of these questions were:
- Where are we on the map?
- Why did coal miners need a lamp?
- When do we use directions?
- What did Victorian children do?
We are currently planning our school trip for this term. Information will follow soon.
As a class this half term we will be reading the fictional stories 'Boy of the Deeps' and ‘Daisy Saves the Day’ and the non-fiction text 'You Wouldn't Want to be a Victorian Miner'. We will also be reading about Florence Nightingale.
Every child will also take part in a Guided Reading session every week with Miss Hennigan and Mrs Chapman, where they will read a different text to their individual reading book. Children will also take part in a range of reading activities including enjoying books in our own reading area.
The children will also be exploring our new library and selecting their own book to read for pleasure. Our library day is Tuesday.
