Year 2 Blog

Autumn 1 Blog - Week 8

Year two have enjoyed a wonderful half term of learning. In reading, the children have read a range of text types and have enjoyed exploring their background knowledge and making predictions. The children have learnt how to answer simple retrieval questions which they have enjoyed. As part of their writing learning, year two children have innovated stories from texts such as ‘The Bad-Tempered Ladybird’ and ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. The children have generated and used a range of powerful adjectives to make their writing more interesting for their audience. The pieces of writing have been published in our learning environments as well as on the app, ‘Book Creator’. The children look forward to sharing their narratives with their friends in year one next half term. In maths, we have focussed on number and place value. Through the use of concrete resources, the children have explored the concepts behind number, place value, addition and subtraction. They have then applied this understanding to reasoning and problem solving activities which are helping to build their maths fluency. Our wider curriculum focus has been based on the theme, ‘In The Garden’ and the children have studied Geography and Art as part of this. The children have studied the location of the United Kingdom, the human and physical features of the United Kingdom and how land is used in our local area. From these lessons, the children expressed an interest in the development of more trees and Green Spaces in our locality. Interestingly, the children have become very passionate about the current environmental issues and therefore, we will be staging our own ‘March for the future’ march in our area. These lessons have also linked to our science learning which has focused on plants. As part of these lessons, the children have identified parts of a plant, identified what a plant needs to grow and have planted their own bulbs which they are daily looking after.

As you can see, Year two have had a wonderful half term. We are very excited to continue our fantastic learning next term. Have a lovely break.

Autumn 1 Week 7 - The Bad Tempered Ladybird

This week, year two have been writing their innovated stories based on the story of 'The Bad Tempered Ladybird'. The children have innovated their character to match an underwater setting. Some characters are, 'The grumpy turtle', 'The mardy mermaid' and 'The irritated stingray'. We look forward to using the app 'BookCreator' to make our innovated stories into picture books that we can share with our friends and family."
