Welcome to our Year 2 page.
Please visit regularly to find up-to-date information from our year group.
There are two classes in Year 2; Moles and Squirrels.
This term we have been learning all about The Great Fire of London. We learnt about how the fire started, when and where it began and how long it lasted. We learnt about buildings then and tried to create our own Tudor houses using cardboard boxes. It was so much fun!
In English we have been working hard to write a problem resolution narrative based around the story of ‘Stuck!’ written by Oliver Jeffers. We also wrote a very persuasive letter asking the mean farmers from the story of Fantastic Mr Fox to give back Mr Fox’s tail. Fingers crossed, he should be reunited with it once again.
In Maths we have learnt all about multiplication and division. We have been working hard with our times tables facts and use them to help us solve problems. We have also learnt all about Fractions, how to read them, and work out fractions of amounts using the bar model to help us.
We love to read. It is our favourite past time and we just can’t get enough. We use our sounds to help us and the pictures as clues. Some of us have moved onto chapter books and we can’t put them down so we take them out to play with us and we spend rainy days with our noses in a book.
This Autumn term, we have been extremely busy in Year 2.
For our Talk 4 Writing we have explored and written our very own repetitive poems. We looked closely at the journey tales and problem resolution tales so that we were about to write our own. We have also learnt about recounts and instruction texts. It was great seeing all the parents using our instructions when supporting us with our shoebox dioramas.
In Maths, we have spent a lot of time learning about the place value of numbers and what each digit represents in a 2 digit number. We have investigated properties of shape, explored time and solved addition and subtraction problems using concrete objects and pictures to help us.
During Topic, we have learnt about people who have been famous for more than five minutes. We learnt about Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong to name but a few. We then did some exploring of our own around the school grounds and went on a deep sea mission. Exploring is so much fun!
