Welcome to Mrs Atkins' Primary Two/Three Class!

 

We are currently updating our website.  Please visit again soon.

Numeracy (P2) - January - March 2019

Mathematics & Numeracy – During Term 2

We will be learning to: Understand and use mathematical language when talking about their work. Solve everyday problems in the classroom. Recognise simple patterns and say what comes next.

Number

  • Count forwards and backwards in 2’s from odd and even numbers within 20.
  • Know the number “before”, “between” and “after” within 20.
  • Practically subtract an amount from a set, within 20, as “take away”, “subtract” or “finding the difference”.

Money

  • Exchange higher value coins (up to 10p) for 1p’s.
  • Calculate change required when buying items from 5p and then from 10p.

Measures

  • Understand and use analogue time: o’clock only.
  • Understand and use digital time: o’clock only.

Shape and Space

  • Recognise and use mathematical names for 2D shapes: square, rectangle , triangle and circle – using given shapes, and also where they occur in the environment

Handling Data

  • Use given one criterion Carroll Diagrams to sort for negation, explaining completed diagram (e.g. stating how many animals did not have 4 legs).

Language & Literacy (P2) - January - March 2019

Language & Literacy – During Term 2

Talking and Listening

  • Recite poems and rhymes with some variety in pace, emphasis and intonation.
  • Use different voices for characters when reading aloud.

Reading

  • Learn about rhyme by exploring patterns orally, substituting words and phrases extending patterns and playing with rhymes.
  • Know the terms ‘fiction’ and ‘non-fiction’, noting some of their different features e.g. layout, titles, contents page, use of pictures, labelled diagrams etc.

Sentence Construction & Punctuation:

  • Use the term ‘sentence’ appropriately to identify sentences in a text, i.e. those demarcated by capital letters and full-stops.
  • Use features of punctuation to read in a phrased and fluent manner.

Phonics & Spelling:

  • Hear, read and spell initial, final and medial letter sounds in words.
  • Understand one letter to one sound correspondence with vcc e.g. egg, cvcc e.g. went and ccvc words e.g. trip.

Handwriting:

  • Write lower and upper case letters using the correct sequence of movements , ensuring the correct letter orientation. Begin to write on lined paper.

Writing:

  • Use phonological and graphic knowledge and sight vocabulary when spelling during writing tasks.

Numeracy (P3) - January - March 2019

Mathematics & Numeracy – During Term 2

We will be learning to: Understand and use an increasing range of mathematical language and symbols. Begin to respond to open-ended questions. Discuss possible approaches to solving a problem. Suggest ways of recording information.

Number

  • Count forwards and backwards in ones and twos within 100, from different starting numbers (even then odd).
  • Subtract numbers within 50 using a number-line, using both counting back and counting on (difference) methods, recording horizontally
  • Know number “before”, “after” and “between” within 100.
  • Identify missing numbers in a sequence of consecutive numbers within 100.
  • Add 10 and a multiple of ten to any number using the 50 grid, using and explaining number patterns.
  • Subtract 10 and a multiple of ten from any number using the 50 grid, using and explaining number patterns.

Money

  • Find different ways of paying exact amounts within 50p, e.g. using the least number of coins.
  • Calculate change required when buying items, paying with amounts up to 50p.

Measures

  • Choose and use suitable non-standard units to estimate and then measure the length, weight, capacity and area of an object. Explain reasons for choice.

Shape and Space

  • Describe the properties of known 2D and 3D shapes using appropriate mathematical language.

Handling Data

  • Use given two criteria Carroll Diagrams to sort for negation, explaining completed diagram

World Around Us - January - March 2019

World Around Us -

Our topic in January and February will be ‘China.’  

The children will explore the topic of China: Chinese culture and traditions including food, weather, clothing, famous landmarks, famous figures, inventions, ancient Chinese myths and legends and animals.

We will also explore ‘push and pull’ forces within their topic work, specifically related to how The Great Wall of China was built. Pupils will create their own Chinese landmarks from junk-art materials.

The children will use a variety of musical instruments to recreate the Chinese music, Chinese opera and Dragon Dance. Pupils will compare and contrast local and Chinese cultures and traditions. To conclude their WAU topic, pupils will celebrate Chinese New Year.

ICT -

Explore: Participate in individual and shared ICT experiences using websites such as www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies and Active Inspire and C2K programmes.

Express: Participate in creating a picture on Active Primary.   Discuss what is happening in the picture and record using the sound control and recorder buttons. Listen to recordings.

Exchange: Discuss how we communicate with people across the world through the use of phone (calls and messages)

Evaluate: Talk about their work. E.g. talk to the teacher about the picture they created on Active Inspire.

Exhibit: Print the picture created on Active Primary.
