Rapunzel, Rapunzel let down your hair!

Welcome back to school after half term.  We hope you all enjoyed the break.

Year 2 have come back with lots of enthusiasm and energy and have had a full week of fun and learning.

In English we have read an alternative version of Rapunzel by Bethan Woolvin.  During the week we have made predictions of what we thought the story was going to be about from looking at the mysterious cover and written some great character descriptions of Rapunzel and the witch.

In Maths we have been placing numbers on number lines by working out what the benchmarks are.  We have also been using the greater than and less than signs.  We have done really well with our Maths this week.

In RE we have found out all about Diwali and the story of Rama and Sita and had a fabulous time making puppets and bringing the story to life in a group puppet show.

We made some super lever mechanisms with cardboard and split pins in Design and Technology.  There were some very creative ideas, including: waving hands, moving pumpkins, jumping cats and mini hoovers!!  Next week we will create a design for a different one.
Year 2 are enjoying their library time, in our lovely school library.  It is a perfect time to spread out, choose a book and enjoy a peaceful read!
Don’t forget your homework on Google Classroom and always remember to read your books 3x a week.  Login to TTRockstars too and spend some time practising your timestables (2x, 5x and 10x).
Have a lovely weekend.
The Year 2 Team
