Welcome to this week's Year Two blog.
Our weekly blog aims to keep you informed about what your child has been learning at school and what we will be doing next week. This may help you to support your child at home with their learning.
What we have been doing this week
What a fantastic start to the year! We are so pleased with how the children have settled in to their new classes. One of things you may have heard about is 'brilliant walking'. If not, ask your child to tell you all about it!
The children have had a busy week getting to know each other and their new classrooms. We have had a focus on teamwork and the children have been carrying out teamwork activities such as building spaghetti and marshmallow towers. We have also had an exciting time hunting for the missing class mascots and making wanted posters.
What we are learning next week
Next week we will begin to be 'brilliant scientists'. The children will learning about what humans need to survive and keep healthy.
In writing, we will be learning to retell a story through actions and story maps and begin to write it later in the week.
In maths we will be exploring place value - the value of each digit in a 2-digit number, and looking at different ways to represent these.
Next week we will begin to count the weekly class reads and Doodle maths stars. The top class each week will earn extra play time!
Take a look at the photos below to see some of the super writing that the children have been doing so far this week.
Have a lovely weekend!
