Celebration of Work
Last week, Year 2 worked hard to write acrostic poems about autumn. We have now moved on to writing a letter to Queen Victoria as if we are either Biff, Chip or Kipper who are in our story 'Victorian Adventure'. In maths, we have started looking at addition and subtraction and are trying our hardest to use our number bonds to 10 and 20 as well as comparing number sentences. In topic, we have been looking at Victorian jobs and considered which job we would like to do if we were a child in the Victorian times.
This week we have been busy enjoying a wide variety of activities and learning.
In English: we have studied, followed and created our own instructions.
In Maths: with the help of our Part Whole knowledge we have been experimenting with creating inverse stories.
In Science: we researched the famous Charles Mackintosh and tested how waterproof Miss Walter's clothing was with the help of water balloons! Some of the clothing was more waterproof than others!
Year 2 have settled well into the new academic year!
This week Year 2 have been working hard to master counting forwards and backwards in different multiples as well as using the resources to understand place value in numbers.
In English, we have been exploring the class text, linked to our Topic for this Term. This has given us the opportunity to retell a story, discuss characters and settings and create some great descriptive sentences.
In PE we have begun learning the basic rules and skills needed to strengthen our throwing and catching capabilities.
During Topic lessons we are learning different aspects of the Victorian Era.
