Year 2: Dragonflies

*Our Christian Value for the term*

Our Christian value for this term is Justice.

 

Justice means giving all people what it is right and fair for them to have: life, health, freedom and dignity. It is about acting out of a concern for what is right. 

When we think about justice, we also think about the British Value of Tolerance and Mutual Respect and Democracy. 

Deuteronomy 16:20: Follow justice and justice alone.

*Our Learning for this term*

Maths

In Maths this term, we are looking at time. Children will begin with o’clock and half past followed by quarter past and quarter to. Children will then look at how many minutes there are in an hour and how the clock numbers are place five minutes apart. They will then work on answering time related questions to see if the can answer the correct time.
