Wow! It’s half term already!

Well done to everyone for making it through to half term!  It’s a big jump from Year 1 to 2 and everyone has risen to the challenge.  We all definitely deserve a week off!

The week has been as busy as ever.

In English, we have written our own stories of Jack and the Beanstalk.  We are trying to use adjectives to add interest for the reader and a range of conjunctions to extend our sentences.  We are very proud of our stories and our stamina for writing is really improving.

In Maths we have been regrouping ones into tens as a strategy for adding up two digit numbers.  We used dienes equipment to help us.  We are really starting to get the hang of it.

In Geography we have drawn maps of our local area, looking carefully at the shape of the school building and playground and where Hatfield Road runs in front of the school.

In Art we have finished our beautiful Autumn wreaths.  We thought carefully about the Autumn colours and used our cutting skills to cut out leaves, pine cones and flowers to add to them.  Aren’t they beautiful?

Homework for half term will be learning spellings and to compete in the TTRockstars Challenge (Yr2 vs Yr3!). Please check out Google Classroom for more details.  Keep reading too! 🙂

We really hope you have a peaceful, fun half term break and look forward to seeing you all back on Monday 30th October.
