Another busy week in Year 2!

This week we have learned about another famous nurse from Victorian times, Mary Seacole. Like Florence Nightingale, Mary also helped the British soldiers in the Crimean War. Children learned about her life and played a game to answer questions. The children also compared her to Florence Nightingale and sorted statements about their lives and work.
Here we are engrossed in our activities and discussions!
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 then planned and wrote their own alternative version of this well known story.
We started our new topic on addition and subtraction this week. We have used our number bonds to 10 to find number bonds to 100. E.g If you know that 1 + 9 = 10 you also know that 10 + 90 = 100. We have also been learning other number bond facts and representing these using part whole models and bar models. Knowing number bond facts is really important as we apply these in lots of other contexts. Please learn number bonds to 10, 20 and multiples of 10 to 100.
