Well done to all the children who have been completing their home learning. We are very impressed with the quantity, as well as the quality and variation in how the home learning is presented.
It has been another busy week in Year 2.
The spellings this week have been the r sound with the wr digraph. The words we have practised this week are stuck in their home learning books, along with the maths sheet to practise adding multiples of 10 to 2 digit numbers.
In maths we have continued adding and subtracting, progressing to calculations with 2 x2 digit numbers. The children were good at using the dienes (tens and ones) to show how they understand the concept. we also used the word ‘partition’ a lot to describe how we separate the tens and ones and then by using known number facts were able to work out the answers.
Adverbs of time were the focus in our class writing today when the children described day in the life of the old man at the beginning of the story: The Tin Forest. We continued to use adjectives to describe the junk he found and conjunctions to make our sentences more complex.
In science the children were investigating different materials and their properties: twisting, stretching, bending etc.
In RE the children have begun to think about different religious groups that we belong to. We are learning to respect each others view and beliefs.
PLEASE can you ensure that you have paid for our Great Fire of London day which is this coming Thursday. We still have many payments of £8.30 outstanding. This day really benefits your child’s learning as it brings our topic to life. Also the children need to be a in outfit (parents too if you are helping) which is a simple version of what children wore in 1666. Boys can wear long trousers tucked into long socks with a t shirt, waistcoat and flat cap. Girls could wear a long skirt / dress with a pinafore and a mop cap. Thank you.
Have a lovely weekend
The Year 2 team.
