What have Year 2 been up to?

Home Learning Links

Y2 have settled back into the routines of school really well. They are becoming a lot more independent and are trying to do things themselves before asking for help. In writing they are trying to use their phonic knowledge to help with spelling.

It was the first full week back and the children produced some fabulous learning.

In English we have been looking at the story of the Gingerbread Man and the children have been learning to use describing words (adjectives) in their sentences.

In maths we looked at counting and regrouping numbers up to 20. They used number sentences, pictures and mathematical diagrams.

In science we sorted things into those that were living and those that were not. We looked at what made them living e.g. could grow, could breathe, could move.

For Roald Dahl Day we looked at the story of the Enormous Crocodile. After watching an animation of the story, the children used adjectives to describe the different characters. In maths we used the more than and less than symbols to compare numbers, but we made them look like crocodile jaws, complete with teeth!

Welcome to Y2.

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

School looks a little bit different - the safety of the children and all the adults is very important, so regular hand washing will be taking place. We (the year 2 bubble - children and staff) have our own area to play on the field / or playground. Packed lunches are eaten in the classroom.

 

On Mondays we have PE with Mr Edwards, so the children will need to come to school dressed in their PE kit (joggers and a jumper with trainers for their feet). Please note that wherever possible, PE will be done outside.

 

Home learning will be sent home on a Thursday and collected in on a Tuesday. Please listen to your child read and ask them some questions about the book to check their understanding - thank you.

If you have any questions, please feel free to come and chat - after school is better.

It was great to see everyone last week, both the children and all the adults. The children were so excited to see all their friends after such a long time.

We began by explaining what was expected in class - e.g. hand washing, playtime and  lunchtime arrangements, where to find different equipment etc.

In maths we did some counting and number recognition to 20, while in  English the children wrote about something they had done in their holiday and completed a reading comprehension about the story 'You're not ugly, duckling. We also did some simple phonics and handwriting. In science we looked at similarities and differences between each other. We also created our class charter.

 

I was very impressed with how all the children got on being back in school - well done to everyone.

 

WHAT WILL WE BE DOING THIS TERM?

Our topic is history based and is all about significant people - 'Nurturing nurses' (Edith Cavell, Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole).

 

Our science topic is all about living things.

Our DT topic (Design Technology) is called 'Moving pictures - traditional tales'
