Y2 Looking Back and Forth 24th March
Friday 24th March 2023 – Looking Back & Forth in Year 2
We have had another super week. In English we have begun writing Oliver and Patch, using noun phrases and powerful verbs to make the story interesting. Phonics focused on adverbs and how they change the meaning of a sentence. In maths we focused on arithmetic skills. In Science, the children explored food chains and discovered signs of Spring in the playground area. In reading we practised the skills needed to answer comprehension questions. In PE we have been active learning hockey skills. Another busy week with lots happening.
