Year 2 - Tigers
Mrs Ball, Mrs King, 

14th September 2018
This week, we have been learning the new routines for Year 2 and managing really well.
In English, we have been reading about Little Rabbit Foo Foo and rewriting the story in our own words. With their learning partner, the children thought of adjectives to use in their writing. We have also been learning about different types of sentences and the appropriate punctuation for each.

We started reading 'Matilda' by Roald Dahl for our class reader. 

In Maths we continued learning about place value and using jottings to represent Dienes rods in our books. We also investigated how many two and three-digit numbers we could from a given number. We then ordered them. 

In Art, we have been sketching self portraits and comparing them to those we drew at the beginning of Year One. We saw lots of development in ability and observation.

In Science we got stranded on a desert island and had to think about the things we wanted and the things we needed to survive. You will be pleased to know that mummies and daddies were mentioned quite a lot.

Next week we start learnikng about Florence Nightingale and why we remember her.
I hope you have a great weekend.


First days in Year 2
We have had two grrrrreat days settling into Tigers.
In English the children have been writing a recount of their favourite part of the summer.

In Maths we have been thinking about number and place value. We also learnt how to set out our numbers correctly.
It was lovely to see such confident swimmers in the pool today. It was such good weather and a real treat for the first week back at school.
We have been learning about growing our brains and the need for challenging learning. We watched the Growth mindset dojo videos on Youtube if you would like to have a look.
Next week we are developing our understanding of place value and retelling a popular story. We will also be listening to the children read individually.

Have a great weekend!
