It’s been a very busy term so far in Y2. the children came back from their holidays refreshed and ready to learn! They have been totally engaged and inspired by our topic; The Great Fire of London and have been bringing in some amazing home projects. Thank you!

In English, we have been learning  lots of  new skills for writing non-chronological reports. The children have worked hard on their types of sentences (statement, question, exclamation and command), past tense/past progressive tense, punctuation and spellings. They are beginning to plan their reports and we look forward to seeing the final edits!

To support your children in their writing- encourage them to re-call facts about the Great Fire of London and say/write them in different ways.

There will be a focus on spelling this term and we encourage all children to practise their weekly spellings at home! It makes a huge difference in their writing!

In Maths, children have been recalling and using their multiplication and division facts. They have also been estimating and measuring length/weight and volume.

To support this at home- encourage the children to weigh food and measure items within the home.

We have been building our ICT skills; painting a scene from the Great Fire of London. The children have produced some fantastic pieces.

It’s been a wonderful start to the term! Well done Y2!
