Year 2 (The Starfish)

Weeks Beginning 14.10.19 - 4.11.19
 

We have had a busy few weeks in Year 2. We have been looking through some of our strategies for multiplication, division and fractions and we have even started to apply these to problems.

We have looked at the story ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ completing activities such as drama, hot seating and using this to help us write a letter to the crayons from Duncan.

It has been so much fun completing out DT project for Children in Need and we have been covered in glue and paper mache (which made the classroom smell, not in a nice way!).

          

 

 

Fortnight Beginning 30.9.19 - 7.10.19
 

We have had a busy two weeks in Year 2. We have been challenging our calculation skills by looking at the unstructured number line in addition, subtraction and multiplication. We used a map to search for clues to find different sentence types that were hidden in the playground and we have been learning about the story of a God that has an elephant head. Yes, we said that right, an elephant head! We are trying really hard to include all of the Year 2 objectives we have learned so far to make our work interesting for the reader. At parents evening, you will be able to see our attempts at re-telling the story.

                             

 

Fortnight Beginning 16.9.19 - 23.9.19
 

We have had a busy two weeks in Y2. It has been our first chance to attempt some challenge papers and for our first go we have done the best that we can do. It has been fun to show Miss Struggles, Mrs Kilner and Miss Godber where our learning is at present. We look forward to seeing where our adults take our learning next.

Maths has been fun looking at the unstructured number line and adding numbers using our tens and ones. It was tricky adding on the ten but we are continuing to get better at this.


                     

 

Fortnight Beginning 2.9.19 - 9.9.19
 

What a fantastic start for the new Year 2 children!

We have reminded ourselves about place value and moved our learning onto partitioning numbers into tens and ones. This has in turn helped us to work out addition calculations on the unstructured number line. This, though, has been a bit tricky.

In writing, we have looked at the make-up of sentences and focused on the terminology nouns, adjectives, verbs and determiners. This will help us in our future learning to write coherent descriptive sentences.

This term we are lucky to have sessions with JB sports and Eco again. We can’t wait to see where this term will take us. Don’t forget your wellies or an old pair of shoes on a Friday.
