Year 2 - Our Learning

Autumn 1

Dear parents, we've had great fun in year 2 this half term! We have made a great start to the new school year and most importantly, we've learnt lots of new things! 

Enjoy looking at some of the things we have been doing below...



We began the new school year by exploring postcards and letters. The children wrote some fantastic recounts in the form of a letter to Mrs Walsh. We were so impressed with the standard of writing, so early in the school year. After this, we started our work on Warning Stories. Using Talk4Writing we learnt the story of Little Red Riding Hood before inventing our very own warning stories. Take a look at the children retelling the story of LRRH below...

Maths has been a little bit tricky but we have made excellent progress. Our understanding of place value within 2-digit numbers has developed well and we are now able to add and subtract these numbers with some confidence! 


Don't forget to complete your maths homework on Education City...

In science we have been learning all about the uses of everyday materials. We talked about the suitability of different materials and even did an experiment to find out which materials would be the best to make a house from! We even went on an exciting trip to Platt Fields Park. See what we got up to in the photos below...

In music we have had great fun following beats and rhythms. We have also been learning to follow a simple beat with musical instruments. Ask your children if you can play "don't clap this one back."
