We have had another busy week in year 2.
In English we read the traditional tale ‘The Little Red Hen’ and have looked at the alternative version ‘Mr Wolf’s Pancakes’. We found out that in both stories the main character wanted to make something but their unhelpful friends refused to help them. The children are now busy planning their own alternative version which they will write next week. Can they tell you about the ideas they have planned?
In maths we have continued our work on place value looking at comparing and ordering numbers as well as counting in 2s,3s,5s and 10s. Keep practising these at home!
Mathletics: We are all now up and running with our Mathletics passwords and have had a chance to learn how to use the website at school. Please log on at home and see if you can earn enough points for a bronze certificate. You never know, you may be our top point scorer and earn our Mathlete of the Week trophy!
We have been enjoying PE lessons with Mr Little. On Mondays and Tuesdays, we are developing our gymnastics skills focussing on being able to hold a position and balancing. On Thursday’s outdoor session, we have been working on SAQ skills (Speed, agility and quickness).
We have started to create some food plate collages in art this week. Thank you to all of those parents who have sent in foil, sponges and other bits. We will be working on these over the next few weeks and hope to make a display in the dining hall with our finished work.
Do you get your 5 a Day? This week we have learned why we need to eat (or drink) 5 a day to keep healthy and have learned what a portion looks like.
Thank you for all the brilliant learning logs. We really enjoyed looking at them and finding out how you keep healthy at home. We have sent home a new learning log today.
Have a lovely weekend,
The Year 2 Team
