    Term One

    We have had a fantastic start to the school Year.  Our topic this term has been Weird and Wonderful Weather. Our writing has been based on the story “The Storm Whale” by Benji Davies. The pupils have learnt the story using story maps and then innovated the characters and settings to create their own versions. The classes focused on using interesting adjectives to bring their stories to life.

      In science we have looked at the properties of different materials, using this knowledge to help us investigate which materials were waterproof. The children then created some amazing kites that were based on very imaginative and unique designs which could be flown outside. The children had lots of fun testing the kites out on the playground.

    For maths we started the term looking at place value of two digit numbers. We then progressed to using money and adding amounts using a number line alongside mental strategies. The pupils enjoyed creating shops and selling different items in the classroom.

    Homework will be sent out each Friday and is due in by the following Wednesday. There will usually be a piece of maths work and for writing we ask that the children write a sentence using each of their five spellings from the week.

    The Year 2 team are also looking for adults to come and listen to the children read. If this is something you may be able to help with please speak to your class teacher. Even half an hour could make a big difference.
