Monday 20th September
This week's Special Mentions go to:
Leah for taking pride in her English writing
Jonah working independently and for making the right choices.
Maths - this week we have been practicing the ‘think 10’ method. We have learnt that sometimes it is tricky to do a sum like 8 + 4 and it can be easier to change the sum to 10 + 2!
English - we are continuing our learning on traditional tales. This week we have practiced using adjectives (describing words). We have also been focussing on neat handwriting.
History - we found it very funny dressing up as firefighters from 1666! We realised that firefighters in the past didn’t have much protection and are much prepared to fight big fires in the present time.
10/9/21 - This week we have enjoyed starting our topic in English on traditional tales with a specific focus on Jack and the Beanstalk. The children did a brilliant job of writing neatly in their English books for the first time in Year 2!
In Maths we have been learning to regroup numbers up to 20 and we will continue with this next week (e.g. 5 + 5 + 3 = 13). We have also learnt that = doesn't just mean 'the answer' - it can also mean 'equal to' or 'the same as' (e.g. 3 + 4 = 5 + 2)
In History we have started our topic on The Great Fire of London and we have been looking at London in the past.
A few reminders;
- water bottles MUST be sent in on a Monday.
- P.E day is Tuesday
- Spellings (not starting just yet)
3/9/21 - We have had a fantastic few days settling in to year 2. We have loved learning about the artist Keith Haring and creating our own inspired pieces.
