Celebration of Work
It's been wonderful to see all the Year 2 children back in their classrooms and enjoying their first topic 'Space'. So far, we have been looking closely at the different planets and have made some beautiful collages of the different planets.
In English, we spent some time discussing if we thought there were aliens somewhere in space and, if so, what they might look like. We then used our ideas to write descriptive sentences about aliens using a range of adjectives as well as trying to include some alliteration. Next, we will be writing instructions on how to catch an alien!
In maths, the children have been using a range of manipulatives to explore two-digit numbers breaking the numbers down into tens and ones. We have also been spending time counting up and down in tens.
We are encouraging the children to be more independent with their reading choices and so please support your child with their reading. Remember, we don't expect the children to read a whole book a night but rather spend 15 minutes reading with an adult and enjoying the book they selected.
