We are healthy in Year 2
Friday 13th September | 2 comments
This week in Year 2, we started our new topic “Be Healthy”. We talked about what we need to do to keep our bodies healthy. We thought about what we typically eat and drink in a day and if we choose ‘5 a day’. We have sent home a 5 a day chart; please can children complete these and bring them back to school for a ‘Be Healthy’ dojo!
In English this week we have been using our senses to help us generate vocabulary for poetry. We particularly enjoyed using our senses to write a poem about different fruits!
This week in maths we have been partitioning 2 digit numbers. We used part whole models to show how to partition a number into tens and ones.
We have thought about different ways to partition numbers. For example:
36 = 30 + 6
36 = 20 + 16
36 = 10 + 26
We used this activity in class today to practise partitioning 2 digit numbers into tens and ones. Choose the TU numbers option.
On Friday afternoons, the children have started taking part in different activities:
- In RE children are finding out how Christians and Muslims welcome new life.
- In coding, children are programming Beebots and learning about simple algorithms.
- In food and cooking, the children are practising cutting skills.
- Mrs Kenny is working with groups of children every week to keep the garden area outside Year 2 attractive and to encourage wildlife. They have made bird feeders today!
Next week we are looking forward to welcoming parents into the classroom on Wednesday after school. This is a chance for parents to see some of the work the children have done already and to ask any questions.
We are also looking forward to our Florence Nightingale workshop on Thursday. Please can you make your contributions on ParentPay if you haven’t already done so.
