# Class 14 FS2

## Welcome to Class 14

### Next week we will be learing about 'What the Ladybird Heard' - making a story map and learning about doubles in Maths.

We have had a super first week back - and have been exploring our wild area and nature gardens.

Next week we will be reading the story 'Norman the Slug with the Silly Shell' and using adjectives in our English.  We will also use the book for our mathematics too, by exploring repeating patterns.

## Welcome back for our last half-term! This term we are learning about mini-beasts.

This week we are looking at The Hungry Caterpillar and the life cycle of a butterfly. We'll be having some little visitors in school to see the process for ourselves. In Maths we are looking at symmetry!

Have a super week everyone!

## 22.5.17

This week we are focusing on our independent writing. We have done lots of draft work leading up to our writing which will hopefully be on Monday and Tuesday. We will be visiting the wild area at school for a bit of inspiration!

Literacy: Independent writing

Maths: Counting in 2s and 10s.

Phonics: We are looking at consonant clusters e.g. think

## Hedgehogs!

This week we are learning about the humble hedgehog. Where do we find them? What do they eat? Why are they in decline?

Literacy: In groups make a poster about how to make your garden hedgehog friendly.

Maths: Writing our own subtraction sentences.

Creative: Making clay hedgehogs.

## 2.5.17 Subtraction (and more badgers)

This week we are continuing to learn about badgers - we started making non-fiction books last week full of badger facts and we've got so much information to put in them we need another week!

Maths: Subtraction - we are using Numicon to help us subtract and we'll be trying subtraction from 2 digit numbers. This means we'll have a little look at tens and ones (used to be called units).

Literacy: Carrying on with our non-fiction badger books.

Now the weather is improving (a bit) we are trying to take our learning outside as much as possible; this week we have made a recycling centre in our shed. We had a look round school (behind the scenes) and found out how we dispose of different waste at school.

Maths: We are making sure we can put numbers in order and say what is one more or one less.

## Welcome Back! We hope you've had a lovely Easter break and are looking forward to the Summer term.

Our Topic this half term is British Wild Animals. We will be looking at where animals live across Britain and focusing on which animals we may be able to find in our own gardens.

This week 18.4.17

Maths: This week we will be sequencing numbers to 30+ and recording them.

Literacy: We'll be sorting animals into where they live and trying to label them.

Have a wonderful week!
