Year 2's trip to Kew Gardens
Year 2 had a great time on their recent trip to Kew Gardens. Have a look at the photos below.
Our School Council representatives are Chloe and Kofi, who are two great role models. They will continue to attend weekly meetings in school. They will feed back any new ideas or concepts related to school life back to the class.
During the final term we will be revising all the number skills we have learnt so far in Year 2. This will include solving problems using the 2,3, 5 and 10 times tables and using the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) in a number of different ways. Children will continue to become more familiar with using the inverse to solve problems. Children are expected to count in 2's, 5's and 10's from 0 and to use counting strategies to solve problems. Therefore, it was very important for all children to continue to learn their times tables at home. I have attached some useful maths links at the bottom of the page.
In English, we will continue with story writing and poetry. Children will continue to build upon their knowledge of story writing. Children will focus on including noun phrases, statements, questions, commands and exclamations in their writing.
They will also include contractions and a range of suffixes in their writing.
The texts we will be reading this term will be 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' by William Shakespeare and 'The Golden Egg' by Brothers Grimm.
Our topic this term is 'Plants'. Children will have the opportunity to learn about a variety of plants. They will choose a root vegetable of their choice then plant their own seeds. They will work in small groups to look after their assigned plant pots.
During this half term, we will be learning all about 'Rules'. We will be thinking about forgiveness and how we can forgive and be a good friend like Jesus.
Literacy homework is given out on a Friday and due in the following Monday. Numeracy homework is given out on a Wednesday and due in on the Friday. All homework must be completed in pencil and brought in on time.
