Hi everyone, we hope you’re well.

This week we’ve started looking at 2D shapes and lines of symmetry. The children did very well to identify vertical lines of symmetry by folding paper shapes and checking the reflection using mirrors. Well done!

In English, we’ve begun writing our diaries in role as the Lion from The Lion in Paris.

Have a look at what Mrs Pitman’s brilliant phonics group have been doing… Perhaps you can practise your own spellings using these creative strategies.

Great work on SumDog this week guys – so far 3 children have completed the Fractions Challenge. How many more of you will earn 100 coins before 6pm on Sunday? There’s also a 20 question assessment looking at everything we’ve done so far this year. Good luck!

Have a wonderful weekend, all!

Hello, everyone! We hope you are all well.

This week in Year 2 we have fallen in love with our latest text, ‘A Lion in Paris’ by Beatrice Alemagna. Both the story and the illustrations are inspiring and we are excited to see what the children will create by the end of the unit. We’ve looked at the difference between ‘verbs’ and ‘adverbs’ and had some fun acting them out when you combine them together! Maybe you can try this at home too.

In Maths, the children have been blowing us away with their grasp of fractions. We’ve had to think up some very tricky challenge questions to give them some brain pain! There’s a SumDog Challenge on Fractions this week too – Can you complete 100 questions by the end of next weekend for 100 coins?

Representing Quarters

Have a wrapped-up, warm and cosy weekend Year 2s. We’ll see you on Monday!

Happy Friday (13th) everyone. We hope it has not been unlucky for you!

This week in Year 2 we have planned and started creating adverts to encourage spectators to come and watch the race between the Hare and Tortoise.

In Maths this week we have begun our topic on division. Look at all the different ways we can represent this division problem.

Pictorial Representations

In remembrance of Armistice Day, we have created beautiful artwork based upon the Christmas Day truce.

Have a great weekend. Take care!

Hi everyone,

We’ve had a great first week back in Giraffe and Elephant classes…

In English, we’ve continued with our story, ‘Hare and Tortoise’. This week we’ve been looking at specific vocabulary relating to each of the characters. Can you remember what a verb is? What about a rhetorical question?

In Maths we’ve been looking at how we can use lots of different concrete resources and pictorial strategies for helping us with our multiplication. Look at our arrays and number sentences… Arrays Flip

Our new topic is ‘This Way or That Way?’ and in this week’s lesson we learnt about the seven continents and five seas. Did you know that George (The Smartest Giant in Town) has a brother named Wilfred who travels the world? Here you can see the journey he took across the continents and seas. Wilfred’s Travels. Your homework for the next couple of weeks is to research the seven continents and think about which one you’d most like to visit and why.

See you on Monday everyone!

Year 2 Team.
