Welcome to the Year 2 Bakery!

This week we have started our new topic based on Meerkat Mail. It is a lovely story based on a Meerkat who decided to leave home and writes a series of letters to his family during his adventures. This week we learnt about proper nouns. We could spot lots in the book and then used them in our own writing. We also thought about what we would pack if we were Sunny the meerkat and learnt how to use commas in a list to write a packing list.

In Maths, we have continued learning about different units of measure. This week we focused on volumes of liquid and practised reading in litres and millilitres. We also learnt about measuring temperatures. We linked this to the weather and thought about what times of year we might have different temperatures.

Over this half term we have been learning about bread. Last  week, we designed our bread and thought about whether we would like them to be sweet or savoury.  This week, we turned the classroom into a bakery and made our breads. We all started off by making a simple bread recipe and using our measurement skills we have learnt in maths to weigh out the ingredients then added our individual flavours. The children then plaited their bread ready to cook.

Reminders:

  • Spelling tests are every Monday and are based on the previous weeks phonics lesson. Please ensure you are practising these multiple times at home.
  • Reading at home must be done at least 3 times a week.
  • Homework is set on a Friday on Google Classroom. Please make sure the children are doing this as it is based on their learning in school.
