What a brilliant week we've all had in Year 2...
In English, we started a new unit on letter writing. We started with a cold task to show off our skills so far. From this, we thought about how to write questions and how to use conjunctions within our writing. We focused upon and, or and but. This helped us to develop our sentences. We will begin to write our letters next week.
In our handwriting, we continued to join letters using the boat and washing line joins. Well done, team!
In reading, we changed our challenge books and continued with phonics and steps to read.
In Maths, we concluded our short unit on statistics. We used our new knowledge of tally charts and pictograms to help us answer a range of problem solving questions. On Friday, it was NSPCC Number Day! We drew our characters, played TTROCKSTARS and even did some very fun practical Maths. It was a super fun day.
We also started our "Daily 10" fluency questions this week. It was brilliant to see your super speedy Maths on show!
During PSHE this week, our focus was on everyday heroes. We played a game of guess who to help us think of lots of everyday heroes and how we can appreciate these in our lives. We also continued to be secret kindness agents and helped to be kind to others throughout the week.
In R.E it was a very special week. We focused upon Inter Faith week and loved learning about new religions and faiths. We looked at and compared Christianity, Buddishm and Sikhism. We learnt about the golden rule of loving thy neighbour across these religions. We learnt about three separate stories all with a similar message of how we should not be greedy but instead giving. The Golden Swan, The Sermon on the Mount and The Silver Needle shared a beautiful message.
In Computing, we completed lesson eight of our coding journeys. We looked at loops this week, and realised these are great to use to be efficient coders. We programmed different sprites using loops to be quick coders. Super work!
In History, we continued our unit all about farming. We built a timeline thinking about 0 and things that were BCE. We put neolithic farming here. We also spoke about how farming burst into life in the 1800s due to the industrial revolution. We drew our own timelines and looked at pictures that would go into each era of farming!
Hands, Feet and Heart was the song title of our song this week in music. The lyrics made us think about music being part of our soul, how it can make us happy, and how it can make us want to dance.
During Forest School this week, we observed the mole hills closely whilst also collecting nature in the Forest School area. We learnt about the different plants and materials in our school grounds. Well done, team!
Have a lovely weekend,
