This week in Year 2

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.

Another week has flown by!

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.

Multiplication: groups of, lots of and repeated addition

In Year 2 we have been learning about multiplication. We have been using real life problems to help us to visualise what multiplying looks like. We have drawn pictures to represent the problem. At home, you could have a go, solving your own multiplication problems like ours.
