Year 2

Update for Week beginning: Monday 18th November

We are now half way through our exciting superhero missions! This week we will be continuing our superhero challenges where the children will be putting their brains to the test in range of challenging situations. The children will earn a superhero badge for every challenge they complete. We are excited for them to fill their booklets and take part in our superhero party treat!

English Information:

This week we will be completing a spelling superhero challenge. This will test their ability on key skills such as:

  • phonics knowledge
  • alternative sounds
  • putting what they’ve learnt into independent learning

Maths Information:

This week we will be completing an arithmetic and reasoning superhero challenge. This will test their ability on key skills such as:

  • adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing
  • counting in multiples
  • adding and subtracting ten
  • word problems

Other curriculum news:

We have been busy creating superhero theme tunes, exploring theme tune of the past and composing new ones for specific characters. It has been a lot of fun (and noisy) but we’ve loved learning key terms such as tempo, beat and rhythm.

We have also been testing everyday materials to see if they are fit for making a superhero costume. We have discussed whether materials can be squeezed, squashed, bent or twisted.
