We have had a great week. Everyone is now fully settled in to Year 2 life and our learning has got off to a brilliant start. Spellings have been sent home this week, along with a spelling chart and the common exception words. These are for the children to learn at home but there will be no spelling test, only whether they can transfer this learning across to their written work.
In Literacy we have been watching a clip called 'Marshmallows' about a monster who loves marshmallows. We have began to learn how to edit our own writing for full stops, capital letters, spellings and interesting vocabulary. Next week we will continue our Monster topic by finding out about the Loch Ness Monster!
In Maths we have been practicing our adding using tens sticks and unit blocks. We learnt how to add on tens numbers to a 2 digit number quickly by drawing the tens and units. Next week we will focus on subtraction.
In Science we investigated man-made and natural materials. We went on a wander around the classroom and playground to find different materials to fit into these categories. A home learning sheet went home to further our learning. These can be stuck into Home Learning Journals for Miss White to see on Friday.
