We have had another busy week in Year 2. We have finished our Africa and fractions topics. Please find the White Rose Maths fraction booklets in your child’s bookbag. This is for you to complete at home as consolidation if you wish.

## English/Geography

We have been writing about what life is like for children in rural and urban Kenya this week.

We listened to the story of Evangeline who lives on a farm in rural Kenya. We talked about her day and how her life is both similar and different to ours. We then wrote a diary of her day.

We also found out about Nana who lives in urban Kenya, the capital city Nairobi. We compared life in urban and rural Kenya and used conjunctions such as and, so, but, whereas.

## Maths

This week we have been working on reading and writing fractions sentences involving amounts. We have also learned about equivalent fractions. We finished the week with a topic assessment. The children have found this topic quite tricky. If you do have any spare time, please have a look at the questions in the White Rose maths booklet.

## Art

In art this week, the children have created some beautiful African silhouette sunsets.

## Other activities

We enjoyed working as a team to look for Easter eggs hidden around the school grounds. Each team had their own clue sheet which gave the order to find the eggs. We then had to run to find each egg and back to our team in order. Thank you to Miss Carter for organising!

## After the holidays

• We are looking forward to talking to you at parent’s evening. Please make sure you have booked your appointment.
• We will be starting a new topic based on the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It would be great if you are able to watch the movie over the holidays.
• Maths after the holidays will be measurement including time. Can your child tell the time to o’clock and half past on an analogue clock?

Have a lovely break. Let’s hope we have plenty of sunshine to enjoy!

Stay safe
