This half term, we are learning all about animals and their habitats. We went into the Wildlife Garden to find lots of minibeats. We explored their different habitats and we talked about why we think they might like living there. We also added some twigs, leaves, branches and mud to the Bug Hotel, and we are going to check on it each week to see what is living there.
We are learning how to partition 2-digit numbers into tens and ones. We have used dienes and counters and we have really enjoyed doing it. Have a look at our work below!
During our first week back to school, we learned all about Endangered Animals. Our chosen animal was a Polar Bear. We learnt lots of facts about Polar Bears, such as their skin is actually black and they have see through fur! Ask us why they look white and we will be able to tell you! We did lots of writing about Polar Bears and did some lovely paintings using watercolours, salt and cling film. You can see some of us with our paintings below.
Below is a list of words the children are expected to be able to read and spell, by the end of Year 2. They are called 'Common Exception Words', because they don't necessarily follow a particular spelling pattern. If you want to do any extra spelling practise, use these words as a starting point! I have also attached the Year 1 list, just incase you want to recap.
By the end of Year 2, children are expected to be secure in their 2, 5 and 10 times tables. The Maths Chase website is a brilliant tool you can use to help your children with their times tables. Click on the link below to access the website.
