Welcome to Year 2!
We have had a great start to the new academic year! It has been amazing to see the children looking relaxed and raring to go. The children have so far taken Year 2 in their stride and have settled into their new classrooms, new routines and with their new teachers and TA’s extremely well.
Next week in English we will be writing the Flat Stanley story that we have spent this week rehearsing orally and planning. They will be using their plans to help them and we will be focusing on using the correct punctuation that has been taught so far. In Maths next week we will be revisiting simple addition and looking at adding tens by recognising its relationship to adding ones. For example 2 + 4 = 6, 20 + 40 = 60. In Art we will be learning about the Dutch painter Piet Mondrian and we will attempt to make our own cubist style master pieces! In Science we will be noticing that animals, including humans, have offspring that grow into adults. We will be mapping out the different stages of growth along a timeline and investigating whether children get faster as they get older. In PE we will be continuing to work with Miss Dean on our netball skills.
