Our Year 2 children have settled in brilliantly and are already working hard and learning new skills.
In English we are focussing on ‘Stories by the same author’, exploring books by the author Simon Bartram. We’ve enjoyed reading and writing about ‘The Man on the Moon’ and ‘Dougal’s Diary’ so far.
In Maths the children are learning about Place Value and are practising counting in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s too. They’ve started to investigate measures and have used a range of measuring tools for length and mass.
Our topic for this half term is ‘What’s it like to be an explorer?’ and we will be focussing our History enquiry work on Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong. Look out for our exciting Home Learning tasks coming home on Friday linked to this topic.
Our PE days for this half term will be a Tuesday and a Friday.
I look forward to meeting you all on Tuesday night at ‘Meet the Teacher’.
