The First Two Weeks Back to School
Since we returned to school, we have been enjoying getting to know all of the wonderful children in Year 2. They have all worked incredibly hard and we are already very proud of them.
In English, we have been writing about ourselves. We have used noun phrases, question marks and conjunctions as well as thinking carefully about our letter formation.
In maths, we have been using the Base 10 to make numbers to 100. We have also been partitioning them into 10s and 1s e.g. 45 is 4 tens and 5 ones. We have been learning to add numbers on to a place value grid and use a part/part/whole model. Here are some maths games that the children might like to play:
In our other subjects, we have looked at different types of puppet, thought about our worries and how to log on to the computer/Google Classroom. We have also begun our new RE topic which is about the symbolism of light in different religions.
Please remember that the children need to read at least 4 times a week to get their reading challenge stamp- reading diaries will be collected in on Monday.
Week Beginning 18.9.23
Year 2 have worked extremely hard this week and have produced some excellent writing. They have used expanded noun phrases and thought of some great adjectives to describe our wonderful school. The children worked hard to present their work neatly.
In maths we have continued to practise place value and tens and ones. In science we have explored the properties of different materials, deciding if a material is man-made or natural. The children are designing their own puppet in DT and next week they will have a go at making a puppet.
