Year 2

Weekly Update Friday 23rd February 2024

A Summary of Our learning:

Welcome to Spring term part 2! This week the children LOVED the Fire and Plague workshop. What an amazing way to start learning about The Great Fire of London. The children enjoyed writing a recount about it in English. The children also learnt the new talk story in English- The Elves and the Shoemaker. The children learnt how to use the suffixes -ment, -ful and -less. In maths, the children finished their learning about mass by learning how to answer word problems. In science, the children learnt about living things, things that once were living and things that were never living.  

Our learning next week:

 

English

the children will be using subordinating and coordinating conjunctions when writing sentences about the Elves and the Shoemaker. They will then move on to writing their own versions of this story.

Spelling

Their spelling words are usual, treasure, measure, pleasure, television, new, knew

Maths

The children will learn about temperature.

Science

The children will learn about local habitats.

 

Homework:

  • Reading
  • Times Tables
  • Discuss the temperature using the correct language (warmer, cooler, Celsius)

Notices & Reminders:

  • PSHE- In the first 2 weeks after half term, the children will be having their annual PANTS lesson. This is an important unit that teaches children how to identify safe adults, how to ask for help if something is worrying them, recognise that some body parts are private, be able to name the private parts, and learn that no means no.

 

  • Ferris Wheels- this half term, the children will be making Ferris Wheels, and this requires a lot of adult assistance! Please look out for more information on when we would some parent volunteers to assist with our constructions!
