Welcome back Kingfisher Class. We can’t believe we are now half way into the year!
In this topic we will look to answer the enquiry question ‘What do we need to live in space?’ by studying the human body. We will measure our bodies and test the things they can do. By looking at life on the International Space Station we will consider how humans are able to live and work in space. We will also look back at the history of astronauts and learn about Neil Armstrong. This topic builds upon the children’s learning of different animal groups which is studied in Year 1.
In English we will be reading the book ‘Rosie Revere Engineer’. Please do not pre read this with your child as we plan to reveal a bit at a time through our English sequence of teaching. We will be using our imagination to create our own ‘inventive narrative’. We will also be learning how to write an ‘explanation text’, providing information to the reader on how to use an invention.
In Maths we will be continuing our learning on multiplication and division. We will use our knowledge of equal groups and repeated addition to begin to learn how to use the multiplication symbol and make equal groups by grouping and sharing. We will apply this learning to fractions, where we will learn to recognise and find halves, quarters and thirds of amounts and shapes.
