Values driven learning
Please find below an overview of year two’s curriculum for 2018/19:
At Litherland Moss we have a values driven approach to learning. Below is the ‘Rainbow Pathway’ for our current curriculum focus.
Our class text this half term is ‘Traction Man is Here!’ by Mini Grey.
Traction Man is an action hero with an outfit for every mission. He patrols the house and saves the day in many imaginative ways; fending off the vacuum monster and evil pillows, diving for wrecks in the sink and rescuing damsels in distress in the garden. All with the help of his loyal pet; brave little scrubbing brush. Traction Man is never less than stylishly turned out and expertly accessorised. What will Traction Man do when he receives an all-in-one knitted green romper suit and matching bonnet by his owner’s granny?
Our topic theme this half term is ‘Explorers’
In this unit we will learn compass directions (North, South, East and West) and use locational and directional language. We will use atlases, world maps and globes to name and locate the United Kingdom; its countries and its capital cities. We will become weather presenters to identify daily and seasonal weather patterns in the United Kingdom. We will also get the chance to recognise landmarks and basic human and physical features by using a map and creating our own key.
Reading books will be changed on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Homework will be given out each Friday, please look after your special homework book and return it to school each week, by the following Friday.
Spellings will also be given out on a Friday and are to be practiced for the f0llowing Friday.
Our PE slot is every Thursday afternoon. Please remember to bring you PE kit into school every Thursday.
