Can you believe we are at the end of our first half term in Year 2?
We have had a great week this week. In Maths, we have been learning about subtraction and learning different methods to subtract. We spent some time learning how to use column subtraction and we were blown away by how hard the children worked. Keep practising with them at home – practice makes perfect!
In English, we wrote our own versions of ‘Look up’. We were focusing on having a clear beginning, middle and end to ensure a good story structure. The children have used some excellent vocabulary to describe Rocket and have begun using conjunctions to extend their sentences.
In History, we were learning how to order key events using a time line. We learnt about lots of significant events that have happened in Space history and were able to order them chronologically. We were fascinated by some of the facts we learnt. Did you know they sent fruit flies into space?
Due to you not being able to come into school we thought it would be nice to show you our displays. We have created a display to showcase our incredible pirate stories we wrote at the beginning of October, a D&T display that represents the children’s design process of creating their rockets, a World Mental Health Day display where the children listed a reason they were amazing and a ‘achievement tree’ to showcase their proudest achievement.
As the children have worked so hard this half term we enjoyed a class treat on Friday afternoon. The children have settled back into school life so well and we are so proud of their positive attitudes towards learning. We can’t wait to see them after half term!
