Sandwiches, doctors and dentists!
Friday 6th October | No comments yet
In English this week, we have been learning how to write a set of instructions about how to make a healthy sandwich. The children have learnt to use time connectives, imperative verbs (bossy verbs) and conjunctions such as and, as, so, until, because when writing instructions.
Can you spot the features of instruction writing in these instructions?
The children had fun putting a set of instructions into the correct order:

In Maths this week, we have been using our number bonds to 10 to help us to work out number bonds to 20 and number bonds to 100. Try the game below: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button
This morning we were very lucky to have two special guests. Haris’ mum came to talk to us about what hospitals are like nowadays and Rosie’s mum came to talk to us about looking after our teeth.
When we learned about Florence Nightingale, we found out that hospitals in the Victorian times were not very nice places. They were dirty and smelly! We asked Haris’ mum lots of questions about the people who work in hospitals and how hospitals are kept clean nowadays. The children listened very well and even had a go at a tricky wordsearch with lots of hospital departments such as gastroenterology!
Rosie’s mum talked to us about looking after our teeth. We sorted foods into healthy and unhealthy. We learned that we should brush our teeth twice a day and only have 5 exposures to food and drink in between. We then had a volunteer in each class to have a special tablet that makes the plaque on your teeth purple. Rosie’s mum gave us all a special pack with toothpaste and a toothbrush. Thank you.
Next week we have a skipping workshop on Thursday and the harvest assembly on Friday to look forward to.
Have a great weekend,
The Year 2 Team
