This week in Year 2

Run! Run! As fast as you can!

This week’s learning in English launched our unit on The Gingerbread Man, where we started by the children going on a scavenger hunt to find these items…

The children were then able to rightly identify the story they all came from! It would be great if they could read or listen to some other versions of the story. See if your child can retell the story from memory at home this weekend.

In maths we have been learning to subtract 10 from any number. We have been using dienes to help the children to identify what happens to a number when we subtract 10. We have also begun thinking about taking away 10p in the context of money. At home, it would brilliant if you could get the 10ps out and practice adding and taking away 10p from an amount.

In topic we have followed on from last week’s map drawing by creating our own maps of Waterlooville! If you have any maps at home, it would be great if you could look at them with your child and encourage them to notice what is similar and what is different about them and the other maps we have seen.

We would like to remind you that Friday 1st October is an Inset day.
Have a lovely weekend!
