Week 4

We’ve had a lovely few weeks settling into Year 2.

In English we have studied and edited Farmer Duck and wrote a character description for the Enormous Crocodile. In both pieces we have focused on improving our writing by adding adjectives, expanded noun phrases and lists. Next week we are writing a diary entry from the viewpoint of one of the characters in the Enormous Crocodile by Road Dahl.

In Maths we have studied the place value of each digit in a 2 digit number, recalled our number bonds to 10 and learnt how these can help us with our number bonds to 20. Next week we are focusing on our number bonds to 100 and adding and subtracting 10 from any given 2 digit number.

In Topic we have learnt about the different types of animals, discussed what animals need to survive and learnt about life cycles. Next week we are focusing on birds and fish.

As well as all of this, we have had PE dance sessions with Mrs Hayward, logged onto the computers safely and securely, made Christmas cards (I know!), had a wonderful Golden Time and much, much more!

Have a lovely weekend!
