Welcome to Austen Class Page Term 1 2018-2019
This term our topic is all about Space. We will be considering the question – Would I like to leave Earth?
In Literacy we will be looking at Space stories such as “Beegu” and “Man on the Moon”.
In Maths we will be developing our understanding of number and place value and focusing on ensuring we have a strong grasp of number. We will continue to focus on developing our mathematical language and reasoning skills through the PACE (Practise, Apply, Challenge, Extend) approach to maths.
In Science we will be delving deep into the world of astronomy and finding out all about the planets and the Moon. This will link in well with our Art lessons.
As part of our History topic we will be researching the “Space Race” and learning about the different animals who were sent into space!
I look forward to a fantastic first term with Year 2.
