The children had a great time presenting their inventions to the Dragons last week and we were very proud of how well everyone spoke so clearly and persuasively. A big thank you to those parents who came in to help with this activity and make it such a success.
In Maths this week we will be learning about different measures. We will be measuring weights and length and telling the time. Please continue to spend some time with your child ensuring that they are confident with telling the time on a clock to the nearest 15 minutes. Give them opportunities to use a ruler to draw lines of given lengths or to accurately measure objects. If you are planning to do any baking over the half term holidays then please encourage your child to read the scales using the vocabulary of weight and let them see and feel what a gram, 5 grams or 1 kg of flour or sugar are like.
In Literacy the children will be continuing with their creative writing based around George’s Marvellous Medicine. After creating their own medicine, they will now write a story about what happens to the person when they take the medicine and the impact it has on them.
Please continue to help your child to learn their weekly spellings. Please also pick a few spellings to learn or revise each week from the year two spelling list which was sent home before Christmas.
Our PE lessons will be continuing in all weathers, with netball outside on a Friday and all three classes will take part in their dance lesson on Monday afternoon, where they will be performing their completed dances to the other classes.
In Music we are busy learning some songs ready for a music festival which will take part at the beginning of the Summer term – more details to follow nearer the time.
We hope you will have an enjoyable half term and look forward to seeing you back at school on Tuesday 20th February as Monday 19th is an inset day for all staff.
With Kind Regards
The Year 2 Team
