Week beginning 14th September 2020
Welcome back to the new school year. We have had a brilliant start to the Year in Year 2. Last week we enjoyed our Wellbeing Week. We enjoyed mindful colouring, yoga and learning new skills. I am so proud of all of the children for having such a positive attitude coming back to school. I am glad to see that we are all happy and settled in school again.
In English this week, we started to look at a new text. Our new story is one that I know we were familiar with ‘The Three Little Pigs’. This week we used adjectives to describe the pig and the wolf. We have used time adverbs to help us structure the story and have worked on extending our sentences using ‘and’ and commas.
In Maths this week, we started to look at Place Value and working with numbers to 100. We have been able to count to 100 and on from a given number. We have been able to read and spell numbers in word form and have practised using tens and ones to represent numbers.
This week in topic lessons, we have started our new topic ‘Castles’. The children have all wrote a question about castles that they would like to learn about over the next couple of weeks. We have started off by locating some castles in the UK on a map and ordering castles on a timeline. We have also completed our PSHE unit about positive thinking.
