Welcome to Year Two!

WB 9.11.20

 

The children enjoyed Interfaith Week, particularly learning about Sikhs and participating in lots of group work and practical activities enabling them to understand Sikh beliefs and values. A big thank-you for the recycling you sent in, the children made some fantastic junk models of Gurdwaras.

In maths this week we will be learning different strategies to add and subtract 2 digit numbers with 2 digit numbers. In English we will be learning about the features of non-fiction books in preparation for creating our own non chronological reports, 'All about India'! In Science we will be learning about Charles Mackintosh and how his discoveries help us today. 

 

Reminders: PE is now on a Friday and reading books are to be handed in on a Monday so we can have them ready to hand them out to you on a Wednesday smiley

 

Have a super week, 

Mrs Turner x 

 

Our learning!

Learning a poem about people who help us!
