This week in English we have been looking at using subordinate conjunctions to create subordinate clauses. In maths we have identified fact families and used this knowledge to solve missing number operations. As a class we have begun to discuss the internet and how to use it safely.
Homework will be set next week.
We have achieved so much in the last eight weeks, from exploring a new coding app ‘Hopscotch’, where we got to use inputs to create an algorithm for a character, to writing our own limericks. In maths we have been exploring mental strategies for addition and subtraction while in science this week we looked at how we could answer a scientific question.
Over the holidays we would like children to continue to develop some of these skills by keeping a food diary for a day or two. They can present their work in any way they like i.e. report style, pictures and explanations. We talked about identifying some of the nutritional content in the items they eat and using the traffic light system.
Please can we ask that homework is returned the first week back.
Have a lovely break and we look forward to seeing you all after half term.
This week in English the children have been looking at features for a set of instructions and have been focusing on imperative verbs while in maths they have been using the strategy ‘think 10/100’ to support their mental addition. All children enjoyed their visit from Warburton’s and know a lot about healthy foods.
We will be sending homework home in a two weekly cycle. The date the homework will be discussed with the children will be identified followed by a description of the task. A maths challenge will also be included as a verbal fun task, this does not need to be recorded.
Friday 5th October 2018
English/maths: Write a set of instructions that show how to use the ‘think 10/100’ method to solve addition calculations. Pictures can be included, remember to use imperative verbs (bossy verbs) in your instructions.
Maths challenge: Hit the button 2, 5, 10, 3 times tables
Friday 12th October 2018
Citizenship and Ethics: We have been talking about a healthy diet and lifestyle. Last week we started to introduce some class yoga. Complete some yoga and have some quiet you time this week. Take photos/ draw pictures and write a caption to go with each.
Maths challenge: Think about sharing items equally. Make sure everyone has an equal amount i.e. cutting the pizza equally, sharing treats, sharing toy, sharing the amount of time you and your siblings have on the IPaD.
Please can we have homework books back by Friday 19th October 2018. If it is completed before this date please feel free to hand it in.
We’ve had a brilliant and busy start to the year. In English children have watched, role-played and written a retell of a fable, while in maths we have been looking at regrouping numbers using our knowledge of hundreds, tens and ones. Our topic this term is healthy bodies. We have started this topic by looking at the scientific names of the bones found in a human body.
Wow! What an amazing year we’ve had! From our pirate adventure to the performance of ‘An Inspector Calls’ to name some of the things everyone has enjoyed. It has been a pleasure to teach this year group and look forward to see them grow in the coming year.
Thank you to all children and parents for their thoughtful words and generous gifts. We wish you all a relaxing summer holiday with lots of sunshine we can enjoy.
We are not setting formal homework over the holidays but here are some ideas of things children can do and share with their class in the first week back:
- Summer reading challenge – library
- Write a diary for one week of the summer holidays
- Count forwards and backwards in 2s, 5s, 10s, 3s
- Go on a bike ride
- Visit a museum
- Topmarks website – maths game
This week the children have been challenging themselves in maths with two step word problems that have addition and subtraction in them. They have spoken about the language and solved them in groups. In literacy they thought of some brilliant for and against arguments for a dilemma when reading Horrid Henry. They took part in a conscious alley and used the information to write the ending of a story.
The children loved book day, especially the DEAR (Drop Everything and Read) part!
What a busy week in Year 2!
Thank you so much for coming to our fantastic production of An Inspector Calls and for all the time spent learning lines and song lyrics. We are so impressed with the children who worked so hard and did a brilliant job.
Our trip to Kew gardens saw us up in the trees and climbing over logs with a lovely picnic in between. The children behaved brilliantly and enjoyed walking around the beautiful gardens.
