Service in the Community
Our Christian value for this term is Service in the Community.
Living a life of service is about keeping your eyes open and looking out for ways to make others smile.
Jesus was called the ‘servant king’; his mission was to serve God and to serve all those people he met, through his teaching, his example and the way he led his life.
The Bible teaches us that we should all serve those in need, whoever they are, and ‘go the extra mile’ to put ourselves out for someone else’s benefit.
Who are the unsung heroes who serve us? Who are they at school and at home? How do you serve others?
We look forward to receiving your hand of service, to show how you have demonstrated an understanding of service at home.
We all love learning in the Tiger Moths!
We will be visiting Lincoln Castle in early March and we are very excited about this!
This term in English our learning will be based around our exciting new topic CASTLES.
We will continue to be focusing on writing recounts, information writing and stories using full sentences with capital letters, full stops, finger spaces and interesting words, including noun phrases. We will be continuing to learn about prefixes and suffixes and other spelling patterns.
Our Maths learning this term has been amazing... we are really enjoying our Maths No Problem learning. We have become really familiar with numbers to 20, counting accurately, identifying and finding more and fewer, and using part, part whole to solve number problems, including addition and subtraction calculations and their inverse. Our learning has now taken us to numbers beyond 20 with us looking closely at tens and ones.
In the afternoons this term, the Tiger Moths are working hard doing regular handwriting practise, as well as learning in Science, History, PE, Music, Computing, Geography, Art, RE, and PSHE.
In our Science learning this term we will be using our knowledge about materials and their properties to construct a 'wall' strong enough to withstand a 'cannon ball'.... We will also be exploring the weather in detail, along with our incredible seasonal changes.
In History this term, we will be learning about all things Castle! We are so lucky to have the most amazing castle right on our doorstep and we will be finding out all about it. We are also thinking about some of those national events that have had an impact upon as a nation, from the Battle of Hastings to the Great Fire of London and maybe even the sinking of the Titanic!
In PE this term we will be developing and focusing particularly upon our throwing, catching, running and jumping skills!
We can't wait to explore all kinds of music from Medieval to Modern in our Music learning this term.
In our Computing learning this term we will be developing our skills in using Lightbot and Scratch and as always, learning about the importance of keeping safe online.
We will be finding out all about the different landmarks (including castles!) of our four nations that make up the UK, and their capital cities, as well as developing our map skills, in our Geography lessons. We are looking forward to using Google Earth to explore these features and landmarks too!
Our RE learning is based upon our Christian theme of
Beginning and Belonging.
In Art this term, we will be exploring and creating our own 3D gargoyles, as well as creating our own collaberative Bayeux Tapestry! We are hoping to explore the work of Lowry too, with his stick men!
And finally, in our PSHE learning, we will be finding out exactly why it is Good To Be Me!
Wow, what a lot of exciting learning for us!
We love reading in the Tiger Moths, whether it is in our cosy reading area, reading the books recommended to us by our grown ups, using our lovely school library, sharing stories with our Y2 reading buddies, guided reading, reading to grown ups, or listening to stories throughout the day.
Keep updated with our learning and our news!
