Y2 Looking back and forth 18th November

Friday 18th November 2022 – Looking Back & Forth in Year 2

Looking back:

This week the children have begun to write their own version of A River using noun phrases, past tense, interesting verbs and thinking about sentence structure. In maths we continued to learn about subtraction using a number line and investigated finding the difference. In geography the children continued to learn about the countries making up the United Kingdom. We have been really busy learning the songs for our nativity performance – more on that later!

A busy week, your child should be able to tell you lots more!

Year 2 – Pupils’ Highlights:

  • Music
  • Alien songs!
  • PE – gymnastics
  • Playtimes
  • RE – the Christmas Story
  • My Happy Mind – learning about my characteristics
  • A visit from a baby!

Family discussion/questions:  

What is a noun phrase?

What are the capital cities of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland?

Looking forward:

  • Reading books will be changed on Mondays. The reading folder is needed in school every day. Thank you.
  • PE will be on Tuesday after half term. School PE kits should be worn.
  • If your child goes to football on Friday after school they need to wear school uniform and bring a change of clothes
  • Fluenz on Monday
  • Individual photos on Wednesday
  • Subtraction in maths
  • Science – materials
