Our Year 2 staff: Miss Brown and Mrs Sinclair
Friday 11th October:
This week we have been exploring newspaper reports- looking at their features and analysing them. We then created our own, reporting on a dragon that was on the loose in our school! There are definitely some future journalists in Year 2! We also looked at creating WOW sentences by using superlative adjectives!
In Maths, we continued our work on addition and subtraction, so that we thoroughly understand it!
In our foundation subjects, we explored atlases, the life of Saint Bede and investigated macadamisation – wow, what a long word!
We have been working so hard on our Harvest Festival performance so that we amaze you next week! Please be sure to attend, Wednesday 16th at 9:15am.
Head Teacher’s Award: Corey, for a superb newspaper report!
Core Value: Zack, for being proud of both himself and friends!
Friday 4th October:
In English this week we have focused on first and third person, suffixes and expanded noun phrases. We have also completed super diary entries from the perspective of the dragon in our story! We used our new skills brilliantly within our writing.
We have been working on addition in Maths, using place value counters to help us. As well as this, we have recapped and consolidated our knowledge of fact families!
In order to make our classroom even better we have been working on some creative pieces, such as fantastic, magnetic coat of arms!
You should all have had a letter now about our Harvest Festival assembly (exciting!!) and our class visit (even more exciting!!) – please speak to a member of staff if you have any questions!
Head Teacher’s Award: Millie, for fantastic investigation skills in Science!
Core Value (Supportive): Skye!
Friday 27th September:
Our time in Year 2 has started with a few busy weeks but we have settled in brilliantly! Miss Brown and Mrs Sinclair are so proud of the work we have done already!
In English this week, we have continued our work on ‘George and the Dragon.’ After retelling the story last week, we transformed it this week! We had some fantastic ideas and used the skills that we have learnt already. We have been recapping and learning all about adjectives, commas in a list, sentence types and more!
In Maths, we have been working really hard to secure our knowledge of place value. We have been exploring what the part whole model is and representing ones and tens in different ways. We have also been counting in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s and solved some tricky problems relating to this! We are getting really speedy when completing arithmetic questions, too!
Well done for all the fantastic homework projects that have been brought in! Thank you parents for supporting us with this.
Head Teacher’s Award: Scarlett S, for a fantastic effort to improve her handwriting!
Core Value (Respectful): Amelia!
