Welcome to Year 2!
Here is the update on last week and this week’s learning in year two.
In maths we have completed our first topic on place value and next week we will be starting our first week on addition strategies. The children will be using their number bond knowledge to help them when adding so if your child is still learning their bonds to 10 or 20 please could you practise them at home for a few minutes each day. Keep it very practical for example link 10 pieces of Lego together and then get your child to break into 2, then count how many are in one hand and how many in the other. If they already know their bonds then please encourage them to rapidly recall them in the form of a fun quiz!
The letters we wrote last week to Mr Smith were great and we will now be moving on to non fiction writing linked to our geography topic.
We will be looking at some film clips of a child’s day in rural and urban Kenya and looking for similarities and differences between their day and ours. By the end of the week we will be planning and writing our own ‘day in the life’ script. Please can you talk your child through their day so that they can talk about the chronology of their day to their friends in class.
In Science we will be exploring the need for humans to eat a varied diet, to keep themselves clean, and to take regular exercise. Your child will be planning a healthy meal and looking at ways to ensure good hygiene habits.
A huge thank you to all of you who have sent in paper, tissues, glues sticks and empty containers for us to use in art. All are very much in use!
If you can spare 15 minutes in the morning after drop off to hear readers and are DBS checked, we would love to welcome you into the classroom. Please see your class teacher if you are interested in anyway helping out.
Have a lovely weekend
