Year 2 - Lions
Mrs Theobald, Mrs Grant, 

Autumn 1 week 2
14th September

We have completed our first whole week in Year 2 and what a lot we have learnt already!

I expect there will be some tired Lions this weekend... Make sure you get lots of rest!

In English, we read the story of Little Rabbit Foo Foo who is not very kind to the other forest creatures. We practised writing clear sentences using capital letters, finger spaces and full stops correctly. We also learnt that there are four different types of sentence: a statement, a question, a command and an exclamation. 

We have been revising our knowledge of place value in Maths and thinking about how we can draw pictures to represent 2 and 3-digit numbers. This will help us to improve our mental addition skills in a few weeks' time. 
We played some number games and carried out an investigation with our learning partners to see how many different numbers we could make using the numerals 2, 4 and 6.

We have enjoyed our swimming sessions this week - everybody in Lions can jump into the pool!

In Art we are learning to sketch by looking carefully at lines and shapes. We sketched some beautiful self-portraits.

We have been carrying out our ambassador duties really sensibly. Well done everyone.

Enjoy the weekend.

Autumn 1 week 1
7th September

We have had a great few days in Lions!

The children are looking so grown up now that they are in Year 2.

Everyone has settled back into school life well and we are learning lots of new rules and routines.

We are looking forward to seeing you at our 'Meet the Teacher' meeting on Wednesday at 7pm.

Have a lovely weekend...
