What time is it Year 2?
Friday 31st March | 1 comment
This week we have started to learn how to read the time on an analogue clock. We can all now read and write the times: o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. We have also started to look at time in 5 minute intervals.
Please practise reading the time over the holidays. We will continue to master time on the first week back!
We have really enjoyed the story ‘The Lemur’s Tale’ by Ophelia Redpath. We really enjoyed listening to the story and thinking about the character’s feelings. We wrote in detail from the lemur’s point of view and talked about how his feelings changed throughout the story. We have been really impressed with how the children are now including different features of writing and applying skills independently without prompting! Well done!
We have now finished our Africa topic. We have really enjoyed learning about the differences between Africa and the UK and finished our topic this week by comparing the life of a child living in rural Kenya with our own lives.We wrote some fantastic diary entries.
After the holidays
After the Easter break, we will be starting a new topic based on the Roald Dahl book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It would help if your child was familiar with the story either from reading the book or watching the film.
There is no learning log homework set for over the holidays. Please continue to choose activities from the books we sent out last week, keep up with reading and practising reading the time.
Thank you for your support this term. We hope you all have a lovely holiday and look forward to seeing you after the holidays.
