The children have had a very busy few weeks. In Literacy, we have been planning and writing our own stories using expanded noun phrases and a range of conjunctions. In Numeracy, the children have been practising number bonds to 20 and are now really confidently identifying tens and ones (and sometimes hundreds) in a given number.
The children really enjoyed their walk to Pleasley Country Park, where they looked at the variety of trees and brought back lots of leaves for our lovely new display.
Monday 1st October
This week in Literacy we are looking at instructions. The children will be following instructions to make various items and writing their own recipes. Could you please send in any empty butter/margarine tubs so that we can make bird feeders next week?
I'm sure the children have been telling you all about the things we have been making as part of our learning about writing and following instructions. We have had so much fun! Take a look at some of the photos!
Happy Half Term!
What a fabulous first term I have had in Year 2! The children have worked so hard and I am incredibly proud of all they have achieved.
I would like to wish you all a happy half term holiday and look forward to seeing the children next term.
What a busy week! As it has been anti-bullying week, we have been looking at aspects of bullying in traditional tales. The children have explored feelings through role-play with puppets.
Last week we had a visit from a fire safety officer.
Year 2 have been working really hard in Literacy. I am so impressed with their written recounts of a story we have read.
In maths we have been learning about shape and patterns, direction and statistics. A lot of new skills have been taught but, as usual, the children have worked super hard.
Year 2 have been learning about Julia Donaldson in Literacy. We have read The Gruffalo, The Rhyming Rabbit, A Squash and a Squeeze, Monkey Puzzle and The Snail and the Whale and also looked at a selection of other books by this fantastic author.Ask your child to review one of the books for you.
Ashton won for Anthony Bek at the KS1 X - Country event in Shirebrook. Well done Ashton, we are really proud of you!
We had a great day out on Monday and learnt so much about other faiths.
Zack and Grace got married in a Jewish wedding ceremony!
Wow, what a busy week! We are all so proud of our wonderful Y2's for their focus and effort this week during their assessments. You are amazing!
I can't believe we are in the final term! Year two have so much to look forward to this term with sports day, the summer fair and of course our trip to Cleethorpes!
I'm sure you have heard that our topic is dinosaurs. We have really enjoyed learning about dinosaurs this week and I have lots more fun activities planned to support our learning over the coming weeks. Please ask your child what they have learnt, I think you will be surprised by their knowledge!
