In Maths, we have been investigating halves and quarters of shape and have enjoyed using concrete apparatus to represent our ideas.
In English, we have been working incredibly hard on our presentation and handwriting whilst writing our own stories. The children enjoyed publishing their writing and sharing their stories with each other.
In RE, we predicted how we pray the Rosary using our prior knowledge and wrote instructions to teach someone how to do this correctly.
Thank you for attending parents evening this week. Please keep up reading at home which so many of you are doing; don’t forget to mark your reading on your sheets or in your diary.
Finally, please ensure all nativity costumes are in school next week. We are fully underway with practising our nativity for you all!
Have a fabulous weekend,
The Year 2 Team.
We have had a very busy week this week!
We have investigated halves and quarters in Maths using the bar model and part-part whole model to represent our workings.
In English, we have thoroughly enjoyed our new story, ‘The Smartest Giant in Town’. We found the giant’s clothes in 2F and 2OS and we have written found posters to help him locate them. The children have been building upon their skills and have been using subordinating conjunctions such as because, when and if to extend their sentences.
We would like to remind you that it is Parent’s Evening on Tuesday 26th November and Wednesday 27th November.
What a busy week we have had! In English, the children have thoroughly enjoyed finishing our class novel, ‘The Twits’. We have started to learn the features of a recipe and have compared a variety of different recipes in class. The children are excited to make their own sandwiches next week in DT.
In Maths, we have been measuring worms for Mrs Twit for her worm spaghetti. The children have applied their knowledge of number bonds to 10, 20 and 50 and have represented these calculations in lots of different ways.
Giraffe class are very excited for their Music Concert on Monday 21st October at 11:15am.
We have also been busy practising for our Year 2 Liturgy which is on Tuesday 22nd October at 10:30am. This will be held in the Unity Building and we are very much looking forward to seeing you all there!
Finally, for our home learning task this week, please could all children bring in some food packaging from around the world for our DT day next Friday 25th October. Please ensure no packaging is brought in which has nuts or seeds in, or food which contains either of these.
Have a lovely weekend,
From the Year 2 Team.
We have enjoyed our week in Year 2!
In English, we have published our stories and we enjoyed making sure our presentation was the very best it could be. We have been exploring Mr Twit in our Guided Reading sessions, and the children been sorting vocabulary based on relevance. The children then explained why they thought some words were more relevant than others.
In Maths, we have been taking away tens from any number and have started to subtract two 2-digit numbers.
We loved using the dienes to help us!
At home, please could you practise counting on in tens from any number e.g. 34, 44, 54 at home.
As part of our Design and Technology topic ‘Food Glorious Food’, your child will have the opportunity to taste a range of sandwich fillings and breads on Tuesday 15th October. Your child will be coming home with a letter with more information regarding this event. Please could you ensure your child returns their slip by Monday 14th October.
Have a fabulous weekend!
The Year 2 Team.
In English, we have planned and written our own stories about our own food going on a very mucky journey! We have been working hard to edit and improve our work and have used some fantastic expanded noun phrases independently! We are very much looking forward to reading our stories to Year 1.
In Maths, we have been learning about money this week. We have enjoyed making different amounts in lots of different ways and enjoyed finding as many combinations as we could. We have started adding tens on a number line and have used dienes to help us with this.
Today we have all dressed in bright colours to raise money for CAFOD. We’d like to say a big thank you to all those who have taken part.
Finally, for your home learning task this week, please log in to SUMDOG to complete some maths activities.
Have a lovely weekend!
From the Year 2 Team
Another week has flown by and we have been very busy learners.
In Maths, we have been working out how many worms Mrs Twit collected. We have been adding 3 single digit numbers. The children were representing each number in different ways and have been drawing upon their knowledge of number bonds to help them.
In English, we have been learning to use Expanded Noun Phrases. These are made by using an adjective, another adjective and a noun.
We have also been learning how to use an adverb to describe a verb for example; sitting patiently.
We hope you enjoy your three day weekend!
Year 2 Team
Another week has flown by, we have been very busy.
In maths, we have continued to look at the place value of 2- digit numbers.
We have also started our science projects; thinking about how we can attract more pollinators onto the school site. We completed a pollinator count in the Secret Garden and Prayer Garden. We sorted animals into pollinators and other animal groups.
Thank you to all the families who have continued to complete the weekly home learning. New activities are added onto Sumdog frequently.
We also given your children some RE home learning. Please watch this link with your children and design a poster, leaflet or some artwork about it.
Your Children will come home with a Reading Passport this week. Please complete this with your children over the course of the term.
Please familiarise yourselves with the 1st 10 pages and last 8 pages of your child’s Home Learning Diary.
The Year 2 team 🙂
We have had a great start to our new school year and by 9am this morning, the children were engrossed in maths problems and trying to solve the mystery of a disgusting sandwich left in the classroom. In groups we discussed our ideas and then wrote questions to find out where the sandwich had come from and why it had been left. Hopefully we will solve our mystery over the next few days!
Attached is a letter explaining our new phonics and reading book programme which will also be sent home as a paper copy. Reading books linked to our phonics teaching will be sent out on Monday.
Finally, The Year 2 Welcome meeting has been scheduled for next Thursday 12th September at 3:45pm. We look forward to seeing you there,
The Year 2 team.
