Happy Diwali!

This week Year 2 have had great fun in English with the story Rapunzel.  We have drawn a class story map and made up actions to help us with the sequence and descriptions.  Next week, we will innovate the story and make it our own.

In Maths we have been trying out a range of strategies for adding two digit numbers together, including exchanging ones for tens when needed (e.g. 36 + 47 = ).

In History we learnt about Florence Nightingale’s life and all her achievements.  We noticed there were a few similarities between her and Mary Seacole, and next week we will investigate this further!

We found out all about how how Hindus, Buddhists and Sikhs prepare for and celebrate Diwali, in RE.  We made some beautiful rangoli patterns and have displayed them on the window.  Happy Diwali!

Have you seen Year 2’s displays in the ‘shared area’? One shows last term’s Geography mapwork and the other our Andy Goldsworthy inspired Art.


Remember to read 3x a week and practise your 2x, 5x and 10x tables on TTRockstars.

Have a great weekend.

The Year 2 Team
