Year 2

Update for Week beginning: Monday 23rd September

Here is what we have been up to and what we are planning for the coming week…

English Information:

Last week, we wrote letters to influential people to try and convince them to make changes to the way they use plastic and recycle waste. We are looking forward to a reply from them!

This week, we will be focusing on using verbs and adverbs to describe characters and how they move. The children will do drama activities to help them understand the character more and will then write a story using this character.

Helpful vocabulary to recap at home:

Verb: An action word (fly, creep, jump, make)

Adverb: A word which describes a verb (happily, gently, quietly, slowly)

Maths Information:

Last week, we spent some time recapping key number skills such as partitioning and finding one more and one less than a number.

This week we will be moving on to finding ten more and ten less than a number. The children will also explore the language ‘greater than’ and ‘less than’ and use this in different contexts. If we have time, we will be moving on to doubling and halving numbers up to 20.

My Maths: My Maths log ins have been sent home. If you have any problems logging in, please let us know as soon as possible. If you are unable to complete MyMaths homework at home, please ask your child to attend maths club in school.

This week it would be useful to complete the ‘Counting 1’ homework.

Other curriculum news:

Watch this space for an exciting new project…!

General Information: 

PE days:

Tuesdays and Wednesdays

Please note: This half term we will be doing golf on a Thursday afternoon. This may mean that some weeks we will not do our outdoor PE on a Wednesday afternoon as it will be replaced by golf on the Thursday.

Library day:

Monday afternoon.

Please note that children cannot take out a new book from the library until their previous book has been returned.

We have a number of children with outstanding books from the library. If you have any at home, please send them back to school.
