Our PE days are Monday and Tuesday could you please make sure your child has their full PE kit on these days please.
Homework books are given out on Fridays and they need to be back in school by Wednesday. There will be a treat at the end of each term for the children that have completed their homework consistently.
To start our new Topic, we took on the role of a historian and explored the artefacts in the classroom. Our task was to discover what our new Topic is. We wrote down our evidence on post-it notes and shared this with the class. We were able to find out that our new Topic is all about World War Two and we are all really excited to learn all about this historical event!
This week in Maths, we have been looking at measurement. We used rulers and tape measures to measure a range of objects in centimetres. We then used these measurements to order a group of objects from shortest to longest and compared the differences between them.
Year 2 had lots of fun at the school disco dancing with their friends and singing along to the music.
October is the month of the Rosary. In Year 2, we have been exploring Rosary beads and identifying the prayer for each bead. We enjoyed making our own decade of the Rosary and used these during our collective worship.
In Maths we have been busy partitioning two digit numbers into tens and ones and counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. We are now moving on to learning our 3 times tables!
In English we have been using our imaginations to explore a range of texts including Journey by Aaron Becker and The Bear and the Piano by David Litchfield. We worked in small groups to role play the journey we might take on the magic carpet and what we might see and do whilst we're there. Next we created our own wordless books and now we are currently writing an adventure about a lost item.
