A super first week back in year 2!
Friday 23rd April | 2 comments
Welcome back! We hope you had a lovely break.
This week we started our new topics. The children are really enjoying our class text for this half term, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. This will form the basis of our work across the curriculum. Here is a link to this half term’s newsletter which has also been sent home today:
In English this week we have been describing settings. Through drama and discussion, we have explored some different settings in the story and have written some detailed descriptions. We are really impressed by the children’s developing vocabulary knowledge and how they can choose words carefully for effect in their writing. We created our own imaginary settings based on the chocolate room in the story where everything is edible which the children then used as a basis for their writing.
In maths this week, we have been busy doing lots of measuring. The children have learned how to use rulers correctly to measure in centimetres and draw lines accurately. We have been comparing and ordering objects according to length and have completed some different measuring challenges such as finding out how long the classroom is and how far we can run in 10 seconds!
We have also started learning all about Brazil. We used the knowledge we have gained in previous geography topics to predict what the climate would be like in Brazil. We have learned some interesting facts and are looking forward to finding out more!
Learning Log- Friday 23rd April 2021
We have been measuring in school this week. Carry out some measuring at home. You could make a table to show how long some different objects are. Perhaps you could draw a picture using straight lines and label their lengths.
We look forward to seeing your work.

Have a lovely weekend,
