# Year 2

Our topic this term will be…

The Owl and the Pussycat

In Literacy, we are learning about classical poetry. The children are learning to recite a poem.

Ask your child to tell you the poem and show you the actions.

The children have learnt the poem 'Please Mrs Butler' and performed it for the rest of the class.

## Please Mrs Butler

In Maths, we are learning about money. We are challenging the children to make the same amount using different coins and if they can make an amount using the smallest number of coins.

In our work on time the children are learning to read the time on an analogue clock to the nearest 5 minutes. Please help your child at home to tell the time using the watches they received for Christmas.

Please remind your child to wear their watch to school everyday.

First, we counted the number of letters in our name, then we sorted ourselves into groups.

Next, we used the post-its to show what it would look like in a graph and decided to organise ourselves into lines to match the pictograms we have seen in our books.

After that, we noticed that the pictogram was hard to read because the numbers were not in order, so we ordered them from smallest to largest (Sumayyah).

Finally, we gave our pictogram a title so it’s easy for others to read.

In Science, we are finding out how animals obtain their food from plants and other animals. We are looking at simple food chains and identifying and naming different sources of food.

Look out for pictures from our visit from Lancashire Hawks and Owls.

In Geography, we are learning the names of the seven continents and five oceans of the world. We are using world maps, atlases and globes to identify the Equator, North Pole and South Pole.

In Computing, we are learning to use a search engine to find information on the Internet. We will also continue our work on staying safe online.

The following website has some very useful information for Parents on how to ensure your child is safe online.
