WHAT WE'VE BEEN DOING THIS WEEK:
We really enjoyed meeting you all at our parent teacher meeting!
Our Maths focus for this week has been place value. We have been focusing on understanding the value of each digit in a two digit number. We have used visual resources to help us to understand this! In Literacy we are using the book, ‘Tell Me a Dragon’ with a focus on similes and expanded noun phrases! Ask your children about clap, shee, clap!
LITERACY – We are going to be watching ‘How to Train your Dragon’ as a basis for learning to write imperative verbs (commands).
HOMEWORK: Currently, we are only sending home Year 2 spellings. Just a reminder that your child does not need to bring their spelling sheets into school. You may wish to keep these at home for help with spellings in the future!
MATHS: We will be learning our knowledge of place value to compare numbers using the greater than and less than symbols.
SCIENCE: We are going to be investigating the properties of materials making spaghetti and marshmallow towers.
Year 2 P.E days will be taught on the following days:
Swan Class – Monday and Tuesday
Kingfisher and Woodpecker Class – Monday and Wednesday
Please send your children to school in their P.E kit.
Wednesday 27th - If anyone happens to have any spaghetti packets lying around, we would really appreciate it for our Science lesson!
We will shortly be sending a letter explaining this terms special activities and school trips!
