Year 2

Year 2 Preview Learning: 21st October 2019

Our common exception words for this week are plant, path, bath, hour, move, prove and improve.

In phonics we will consolidate work on the /j/ sound, looking at the –ge and –dge patterns used at the end of words, and the ge, gi and gy spellings elsewhere in words.

In maths we will spend some time revising place value, including some reasoning and problem solving challenges.

Your child’s Brilliant Buildings topic project is due in to school on Wednesday 6th November. Please do not send items in before then as we have limited space to store these wonderful creations! We are looking forward to a special showcase after the holidays.

Many thanks for your continued support, Miss Harwood

 


Year 2 Preview Learning: 14th October 2019

Our common exception words for this week are after, fast, last, past, father, class, grass and pass.

In phonics we will revise the /j/ sound, spelled as “-dge” at the end of a word and learn how this sound is spelled “g” elsewhere in words before e, i and y as in

gentle, ginger and gym.

In maths we will be using our knowledge of addition and subtraction to solve missing number problems. To increase fluency in number bonds, please see https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button and select the games for number bonds up to 20 or up to 100.

Many thanks for your continued support, Miss Harwood

 


Year 2 Preview Learning: 30th September 2019

This week in our English lessons we will be learning about joining sentences using co-ordinating conjunctions such as and, or, but, so.

For example:

Anna went to the shops. She bought a box of chocolates.

  • Anna went to the shops and bought a box of chocolates.  

Would you like pizza for tea? Would you like sausages?

  • Would you like pizza or sausages for tea?      

Simon likes coffee. Andy likes tea.

  • Simon likes coffee but Sally likes tea      .

It was cold outside. I put on my coat.

  • It was cold outside so I put on my coat.

Our Common Exception words for this week are old, cold, gold, every and everybody.

In phonics we will be looking at the /j/ sound, spelt as “-ge” or “-dge” at the end of a word as in large or fridge.

Maths lessons will focus on addition and subtraction. If you wish to support your child at home you could look at page 6 in your CGP Maths Workbook. Consolidating work on place value is useful at any time, and pages 1 – 5 are useful for this.

Many thanks for your continued support,

Miss Harwood
