### Welcome to Year 2!

What a fantastic start we have had in Year 2!

We have been so impressed with how well the children have settled into their new classes and how quickly they have got used to their new routines.

We have enjoyed finding out about our class animals. We are all excited about being Year 2 foxes and squirrels!

This week we have been thinking about class rules, the learning hives and how we learn.

We have set ourselves some targets for the year linked to our learning hive. We created some wonderful personal art work.

In topic this week, we shared our holiday stories and used maps to find the places we have been to.

In maths this week we have started to learn more about the place value of numbers. We have shown what we know about numbers by drawing them in tens and ones, using a part whole model, writing the number one more and one less and also writing any interesting facts. We have practised writing numbers using both numerals and words. Today we looked at some different ways of representing 2-digit numbers using tens frames, base 10, straws and place value counters. Can your child show you how to represent a 2-digit number using these?

In English we wrote letters to Farsley Fox and Farsley Squirrel telling them about where we have been in the world and where we would like to go. We did a great job! We learned about using capital letters for proper nouns and using question words and question marks. The children used the question words on the wall.

Can your child remember any of the characters?

You should also have received a paper copy of our September Newsletter with lots of other information about Year 2 and what is happening this half term. Here is a PDF copy too!

Thank you for your support so far. We are looking forward to a really great year!

The Year 2 Team.

### Fun in Year 2

We had a great time at Sports’ Day and the fun has continued this week with a skip-a-thon, more work in our Bee Books and some multiplication revision in maths.

Here we are skipping. The children recorded their scores for how many skips in 30 seconds. We did this for a range of skips and finished with a class skip off! Well done to our class skipping champions!

Next week we look forward to meeting Miss Ellis and Mrs Begum as we go up to Year 3.

Good morning. Here are the resources to support some home learning for those children who are still isolating this week. There are two more pages of the bee book to complete this week, Making Honey and Why are Bees Important? If you haven’t already labelled the bee, here is a powerpoint to support:

## Making Honey

Watch this video clip and look at the flow chart below to find out how bees make their delicious honey.

Here are the teaching slides and resources to print.

## Why are bees important?

Over the next few days, we are going to be learning about why bees are so important. First we are going to do some reading and research. After that, we will write a report about what we have learnt.

Task: to write a report in your bee book about why bees are important, why they are in danger and how we can help the bees.

Listen to this story:

## Honey Biscuits

Listen to the story and follow the recipe to make your own delicious biscuits.

## Final 2 pages to complete next week- Index and Glossary

If children will be in school for the week beginning 19th July, please bring your Bee Book back to school and we will complete these sections in school.

## Blank Page

There is a blank page in your bee book. What would you like to create a page about?

Here are some ideas:

• Did you know facts
• Other types of bees
• Bee Pollination

## Maths

We will be doing some revision lessons in school on multiplication and division to get ready for Year 3. Please can you complete any relevant sections in your CGP books or spend time working through Mathletics and TTRockstars. Please email teachers if you would like any further support or guidance.
