Year 2 (The Starfish)

Week Beginning 9.11.20 - 16.11.20
 

The one and only Mr Willy Wonka has written to ask Y2 to guard a secret recipe. To persuade us to help, he also sent along a sweet shop. We have worked super hard to earn golden tickets which allow us to buy the sweets at the end of each day. They are rather yummy. Miss Struggles and the other adults in class were really impressed with our replies. During our Maths sessions, we have been looking at fractions and how to divide both numbers and shapes equally. We were quite impressive!

In other areas of our learning, we used oil pastels to produce South American inspired artwork of some Amazon Rainforest animals and we had a fun IT lesson using the Lego WeDo to program our devices. We can’t wait to use that again. All in all, we have had a fabulous couple of weeks in Year 2!

Huge congratulations to Harvey, Jude and Verity for being our ‘Stars of the Week’ so far this term. They have all been very impressive!

           

 

 

 

 

 

 

Week Beginning 12.10.20 - 19.10.20
 

What a fabulous couple of weeks we have had in Year 2. It has been filled with more calculations but those have been focused on subtraction and multiplication. We have come to realise that the number line is rather tricky but the more we practise, the better we are getting. As a class, we have thoroughly enjoyed looking at the story ‘A Tale of Two Feathers’ where we looked at the four different sentence types and applied our knowledge of this to create a persuasive poster about a missing feather. Enjoy the half term holiday Year 2 so that you are fighting fit for Term Two.

   


                     

 

Week Beginning 28.9.20 - 5.10.20
 

It has been a busy start to the Year 2 class. We have focused our learning on recalling what we remember from Year 1 and then thinking about what we need to do in Year 2. So far, we have been retelling the fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel, learning about tens and ones along with place value and using this to help us solve addition calculations either with resources or with our structured or unstructured number line. We cannot wait to find out what we will be learning next.
