This week in Year 2

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!

Happy Friday!

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.



This week in Year 2

Hello everyone, We had a great week of learning in Year 2. We solved our disgusting sandwich mystery and are now reading the book The Disgusting Sandwich by Gareth Edwards.

In Maths, we have been learning how to represent 2- digit numbers using our Maths toolkits. We are getting better at positioning numbers on a blank number line.

We have attached the PowerPoint from the Welcome Meeting

Your Children will come home with a Reading Passport this week. Please complete this with your children over the course of the term.

Welcome to Year 2!

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.
