We are now commencing the last week of the first half term. 

Year 2 have worked extremely hard this term in every single lesson.  I have been very impressed!

This week we finished our work on symmetry and began to look at measuring in cm!  

In English they have written a letter to Samuel Pepys and are now focusing on diary entries. 

On Friday we will be having a halloween party. I will provide some treats for the children to enjoy. If you would like to bring in an extra snack to enjoy in the afternoon you are more than welcome!

Please try avoid nuts and gluten.

This week...

Spelling focus: au sound
Our new sound this week was au.
The spellings this week are words with the au sound.
Please remember the three red words (these are words that are trickier to sound out) are not included in Friday´s quiz but are useful for the children to learn.
We are starting to look at letter writing. For next Thursday, please write at least 5 interesting facts about yourself.
This week we have looked at addition and missing addition problems! The children have worked extremely hard.
Take a look at the following addition games. This will help your children to increase their speed and confidence with their addition.
Have a go at the following problems:
  1.     11 + …. = 27
  2.     22 + …. = 35
  3.     …. + 6 = 14
Look closely at your tens and ones. You can use a number line to count on.
For question number 3…
. You can take away 6 from 14.
. count on from 6 until you get to 14.
