Welcome to Year 2 – Y2LN
During this term, we will be learning about important people’s achievements throughout history and exploring the question “What does it mean to achieve?” Through our writing, art and historic enquiries, the children are already off to a stellar start by researching Florence Nightingale and Neil Armstrong.
Find out more by looking at our learning journey.
By the end of the topic, we hope to be able to think of what our own greatest achievement could be and hopefully will have raised money for a very important charity!
In maths, we will be focusing on the place value of numbers. We will then be moving onto using this to help us with our addition and subtraction learning. The children are enjoying working in their maths groups and are keen to develop their arithmetic skills, we have been using different apparatus to help us understand the place value of each number and are beginning to be able to represent numbers in different ways.
In literacy, we are working on our own information booklet on the different achievements of Florence Nightingale and Neil Armstrong. We have been using our research skills to find our own facts and are eagerly putting them into our own reports.
In regards to our timetable, we have PE on Friday afternoons so please remember to bring your PE kit. We have shared the timetable with parents and children, so any queries please get in touch.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss anything, please do not hesitate to see me before or after school. If this is not possible you can also ring the school office.
Friday – P.E Kit needs to be in school.
Friday – Homework and spellings will be sent home. Spelling test will also take place on this day.
