In Maths we have continued work on adding by rebalancing and thinking ten. The class learnt how to round numbers to the nearest ten.

In History we started our new topic on The Gunpowder Plot, we learnt who Guy Fawkes was and all about the plot. The class thought about differences in life then and now and wrote some sentences describing the differences. The new homework grids and spellings will be sent out on Friday.

Today in Art, we learnt about hot and cold colours and how to mix colours. We made the colour orange by mixing red and yellow paint together. We then painted the background for our Fire Of London paintings. The next stage is to add the buildings using black paper. The whole class are very excited to finish the paintings. Watch this space for the finished pictures.

Year two loved visiting the library today, they enjoyed looking at the new books especially the Lego ones! All the children have chosen a brand new library book, these will be changed every Tuesday during the Library slot. Please make sure they look after them. A big thank you to Mrs Cohen who scanned all the books for us. 

12.10.18
We are so proud of all the newspaper reports which the children wrote this week. They are all fantastic and we will be displaying lots more around the board on Monday. Next week we will be starting our topic on diary writing. The children will be taking on the role of Samuel Pepys and will be writing diary entries as if they were at the fire. 

Have a look at our fabulous display and work on The Great Fire of London

In Maths this week we learnt the signs for greater than and less than. We generated lots of two digit numbers and ordered and compared them using the signs. We had lots of fun applying it to measure and in groups we compared and ordered different weights, liquids and lengths. We can tell you how many tens and ones there are in any two digit number.

4.10.18

This week we started our new topic on report writing. We looked at lots of different newspapers and learnt all the features. We are looking forward to writing our own newspapers next week. Look out for the work which will be displayed in the corridor. 

In history this week we produced our own news broadcasts on The Great Fire of London. We have some very talented reporters in the class. Watch this space for the reports.

In Maths we explored counting forward and backwards on the hundred square and learnt how to partition numbers into tens and ones. 

Please make sure you fill the smarties tubes up for the PTA.

Week Beginning 17.9.18

Maths

This week we have been focusing on learning new maths strategies for addition and subtraction. The strategies the children have learnt are 'think 10' for addition and 'think 10' for subtraction (see below for an example). A great way to help your child embed these strategies is to ask them to be the 'teacher' and teach you how to use the strategy to solve a calculation.

English

 

We have started a 2 week unit on traditional tales, focusing on Jack and the Beanstalk. The children have learnt the features of traditional tales through a reading comprehension, and have enjoyed acting out the story. See below for a simple 'story map' that the children have used to help learn the story before they write their own versions next week.

PSHE

 

This week the children have started their new PSHE unit 'New Beginnings'. We have discussed the types of behaviours we would have in an ideal classroom, linked to our school rules.

 

We have also introduced the children to a variety of yoga and breathing exercises to develop  their ability to manage their emotions. These will continue as part of our everyday classroom learning.

The class had a brilliant time in London today, they all behaved excellently and were a credit to the school. They went on a cruise down the River Thames followed by a trip on the London Eye and a 4D experience. The class learnt the names of lots of the London landmarks and they really enjoyed spending the day in London. This trip will form the start of our geographical study of London and history topic on The Great Fire of London.

 We would like to thank our fantastic parent helpers and our security helper. We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

Welcome to Year 2!

 

We hope you all had a lovely summer break. It was wonderful to welcome back all the children. They all had big smiles on their faces and settled back in very quickly.

We are very excited for our outing next week. Depending on the weather, the children will need hats, water bottles and sun cream applied. We will send out a reminder of the times of the trip. A packed lunch will be provided. 

 

We look forward to seeing you all at the curriculum evening next Thursday where we will fill you in on the year.

 

Have a lovely week
