This Week's News

Week ending 13.9.19

The children have settled well into Year 2 and have been working really hard this week.  We have enjoyed making Great Fire of London cakes and then written some detailed instructions of how to make them using imperative verbs (bossy verbs: put, roll, pour....).  Next week we will start looking at the Great Fire of London, learning about what happened and the timescale of this.  

In Maths we have been looking at the value of each digit in a 2-digit number and placing them in order.  Next week we will be starting looking at addition and subtraction where we look at adding and subtracting single digit numbers from any 2 digit numbers.

The children did their first spelling and times tables test this week and tried really hard.  They should have brought new spellings home in their spellings books and there is also a note in their times table book to tell you which ones to learn for next week.

Have a great weekend!

The Year 2 team.


Week ending 6.9.19

We hope you have all had a great summer!  It has been lovely to welcome the children back into school this week and to start their Year 2 journey.  We have enjoyed hearing all about their summer holidays in the recounts they have been writing in English.  Next week we will be starting our Great Fire of London topic looking at life in the 17th Century.

In Maths we have been learning to read and write numbers up to 100 and next week will be looking at partitioning numbers into tens and ones.

We have sent home our first set of weekly spellings. Spellings and times tables will be tested each Thursday and new ones will be sent home the following day.   All children will be starting with the 2 times tables including 0 x 2 up to 12 x2.  We have also sent home reading diaries which we ask you to fill in when you have heard your child read.  Expectation in Year 2 is for children to read with you a minimum of 4 times per week.  Thank you for your support with this.  

Our PE days this year are Monday and Tuesday so please make sure children have PE kit ready for the start of next week.  PE may take place indoors or outdoors so please have appropriate kit.

We hope you have a great weekend!
