A Fantastic First Half Term in Year 2!

Thursday 24th October | 1 comment

It’s been a super first half term and we have been so impressed with how well the children have settled in. Thank you for all your support at Parents’ Evening- it is very much appreciated!


We have continued with our work on descriptive writing this week. The children have learned the terms: expanded noun phrase and subordinating conjunctions. They have also learned how to use a comma when separating a list of adjectives.

expanded noun phrase:  a phrase which gives extra information about the noun e.g.  a large hat/ a large, black hat/ a large, black hat with silver stars on.

subordinating conjunction: when, if, that, because are examples of these.

We thought of expanded noun phrases for a witch’s potion:


We have continued our work on addition and subtraction in maths this week. We have used number bonds to help us add to the next multiple of 10. We have also started to look at strategies for adding and subtracting ones and tens to a 2 digit number. We enjoyed using stories to help us understand what the numbers in the calculation represent.

Can you think of a story and ask a question?

Can you make up your own stories to add or subtract ones or tens?


In history this week, we learned all about Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot. The children were detectives, considering and discussing lots of different evidence.

We also learned about Firework safety and made our own rules.

Have a lovely half term holiday.
