Thank you

Thank you to all those parents that were able to make it to the Year 2 information sessions. We hope you found these useful but please feel free to come and ask us anything you’re unsure of. We have also sent home an example of a timetable so you can see what we get up to in a normal week.

English

Ginger the guinea pig

This week in English we are thinking about writing recounts- events or experiences which have happened. At the beginning of the week Mr Morgan brought in some special visitors for us to meet but they went missing! Luckily after lots of searching Poppy, Fluffy and Ginger were found safe and sound in the Green Dragons room.

This week we are thinking about using time words such as first, next, then, after that, finally to talked about what has happened. We are also learning about past tense verbs- we looked for the guineapigs; we found them.

Maths

In maths we have continued to look at place value. The children have been working really hard to compare and order numbers. We have been using our knowledge of place value to solve simple problems. We have also been starting to count in multiples of 2, 5 and 10. We have been using numicon, tens and ones and coins to help us to see the patterns in counting. It would be great if you can continue to support your child with this at home. You could…

  • use pairs of socks or shoes to count in 2s
  • collects 2p, 5p and 10p coins to count
  • count in 5s to see how many fingers and toes are in your house!

Science

In science we have been learning about the life cycle. The children worked really well in groups to create a life cycle of a chicken. Can they share the key words with you at home? (Birth, growth, reproduction).
