Year 2 News
Friday 28th September | 1 comment
We have had another busy week in year 2.
In English we read the traditional tale ‘The Little Red Hen’ and have looked at the alternative version ‘Mr Wolf’s Pancakes’. We found out that in both stories the main character wanted to make something but their unhelpful friends refused to help them. The children are now busy planning their own alternative version which they will write next week. Can they tell you about the ideas they have planned?
In maths we have continued our work on place value looking at comparing and ordering numbers. Can you explain how to use the symbols < > = to an adult?
Mathletics: We are all now up and running with our Mathletics passwords and have had a chance to learn how to use the website at school. Please log on at home and see if you can earn enough points for a bronze certificate. You never know, you may be our top point scorer and earn our Mathlete of the Week trophy!
We have been enjoying our PE lessons. On Mondays and Tuesdays, we are developing our gymnastics skills focussing on being able to hold a position and balancing. On Wednesday’s outdoor session, we have been working on SAQ skills (speed, agility and quickness).
On Friday afternoons, the children have been taking part in different activities:
- In RE children are finding out how Christians and Muslims welcome new life – thank you for sending in your baby pictures.
- In coding, children have been programming Beebots and learning about simple algorithms.
- In food and cooking, the children have been learning more about food groups and sorting food into categories.
- Mrs Kenny is working with groups of children every week to make the garden area outside Year 2 more attractive and to encourage wildlife. The photos below show the children making bird feeders.
