We have all settled really well into the new school routine and have begun our Year Two learning with great enthusiasm and concentration.
We have kicked off our 'Monsters' topic by reading about 'Morris the Mankiest Monster'. He is a friendly but disgusting monster and we have written some fantastic character and setting descriptions, thinking about using interesting adjectives and remembering our punctuation.
In Maths we have revisited the greater than and less than signs and have been practicing using our mathematical vocabulary to explain how we know a number is greater. We also had a go at counting in 2's, 5's and 10's forwards and backwards as this is a special Year Two skill. Any practice of this at home would be great!
This week we have been focusing on Science in the afternoons, investigating and exploring different materials. Once we had found out about the properties of some materials, we then thought about how we could design our own desk chair, carefully choosing the materials that would make it comfortable as well as strong.
