Welcome to Year 2!
Teacher: Miss Rebecca Squires
A great first half term in year 2. When we look back over our learning, we can’t believe how much we have got through in six weeks.
In Literacy, we have been working on adding adjectives and similes into our writing to add description and make it more interesting for the reader. The children have written descriptions of a funfair, a character description of a wolf and adapted the story ‘Tadpole Promise’ when writing their own narratives.
In Maths, the children have worked hard on their place value skills and counting in steps of 2, 5 and 10, before moving on to addition and subtraction. They have all been using a number line or an empty number line to add 2-digit and 1-digit numbers, before solving some tricky word problems!
They have produced some wonderful art work this term; from animals made out of fruit and vegetables to African sunsets with silhouettes of their chosen animal.
Not to forget their brilliant recorder playing with Mrs Stock. I hope you enjoyed their tune of 'Mary had a little lamb' in assembly.
