Another busy week!

This week the children have enjoyed retelling the Creation story in RE as a colourful flip book in preparation for their liturgy next week.

In Maths the children have continued developing their knowledge of place value by really understanding the value of each digit within a 2 digit number. They have explored the Numicon and arrow cards to represent numbers.

In English the children have been planning their own version of The Disgusting Sandwich. Their stories have been created with different characters and a different item of food that goes on a journey. We are excited to write our stories next week and share them with one another.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

The Disgusting Sandwich!

In English this week, the children have been exploring lots of exciting words that they have not come across before! They were then able to use the adjectives to describe the disgusting sandwich from our class text.

In maths the children have enjoyed using the tool kits to represent the numbers in a variety of ways. They were then able to compare the value of numbers to identify which numbers were greater than others and ordering them.

In Science we have been learning about the importance of healthy eating and what we need to survive.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Welcome to year 2!

We hope you have all had a wonderful summer!

The children have settled in so well to year 2 working very hard in all areas of their learning.

In English we have been looking at the book ‘The Disgusting Sandwich.’ The children have predicted what they think the book will be about as well as retelling the story once they have listened to it. Excellent reading skills have been shown this week.

In Maths the children have been focusing on place value. They have been looking at 2 digit numbers and identifying the tens and ones. They have been using their tool kits to help them with this. This is something they can continue practicing at home alongside counting in 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s.

The children have their new spelling books to take home and use for practicing their common exception words which we will give to them each week on a sticker. The children are aware of all the different ways they can practice spelling their words.

Just a reminder on Wednesday 12th September at 3.30pm in the year 2 classrooms there will be a welcome meeting for all parents/carers to find out all about year 2.

Have a lovely weekend.
