Welcome to Year 2!
What a fabulous start to the year the children have made. The adults in Year 2 have been so impressed by the sensible behaviour and learning effort being made in the first 7 days of the school year.
In English, the children have been exploring the traditional tale “The Three Billy Goats Gruff”. We have retold the story and then explored exciting vocabulary to describe the troll. Ask your children all about the words ‘stubborn’, ‘monstrous’ and ‘sly’ and see if they can explain what they mean!
In maths, we have been really thinking about numbers and the number system. The children have been representing numbers using a range of tools such as numicon, dienes and place value counters, and have been demonstrating their understanding of what each digit is worth.
This term our topic is ‘This way or that way’ and we will be learning about countries, oceans and continents. We will share more about our learning over the course of the term.
In science, we are learning about living things and their habitats. This week we developed our scientific thinking by sorting items in different ways, then identifying which were alive and not alive. We discovered that living things all breathe, grow, move and reproduce.
We would like to just remind you that our welcome meeting will be at on Thursday 16th September at 4pm. We look forward to seeing you then.
