Year 2 Blog
Friday 20th April 2018
We hope you all had a lovely Easter break! We have had an exciting and busy first week of the Summer Term!
Wednesday 18th April – Kingfishers’ mufti day (Kingfisher parents won the parents’ quiz evening, well done to them!)
WHAT WE'VE BEEN DOING THIS WEEK:
We have launched our new topic “Inventors and Investigators”, and started reading our new Literacy text, which is “George’s Marvellous Medicine”! In Science we learned about Germination and planted some seeds of our own in-class! In Maths we worked on some challenging worded questions.
Thank you to those of you who attended the Year 2 Maths Workshop for parents. Click the link below provided to read the notes from the session.
WHAT WE'LL BE DOING NEXT WEEK:
Our next term’s topic ‘Investigators and Inventors’
As it is Science Week next week, we will have a continuous Science observation of the seeds we have planted.
We will be looking at George’s Marvellous Medicine in Literacy, and revisiting any writing techniques used in Year 2 so far.
In Maths, we will be learning about different measures (time, money, volume etc.) and building on what we know and Maths Language to prove our answers.
Literacy: Remember to read with your child every day and revisit any tricky words (Please don’t forget to bring in your child’s Reading Journal with their books every day). Also, practice the new spellings ready for the weekly spelling quiz (Your child can move on to the Spelling Extension once practiced!)
Maths: Please continue to play Times Table Rock Stars online! Can you think of any ways to remember the 2, 5 and 10 times table? Practise halving and quartering quantities of items, eg Lego, beads
