Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!

Miss Harwood and Mrs Hay would like to welcome you to Year 2.

Year 2 is a great year, full of new experiences and big achievements, and we feel lucky to be sharing this part of your learning journey with you.

It’s been a little while since we have all been at school together but don’t worry, we are here to help you settle back in. Please come and talk to us if you do have any worries or if there is anything you are unsure about.

We are so happy to be welcoming you back to school and we’re really looking forward to getting to know you all a bit better. We’ll work hard together, learn lots of new things, and most importantly we’ll have plenty of fun!

See you soon,

Miss Harwood and Mrs Hay

 


WHAT ARE WE DOING THIS WEEK? – Week Commencing 30th November 2020

In maths this week we move on from adding 2-digit numbers and multiples of ten (31 + 10, 64 + 20 etc.) to adding two 2-digit numbers using ‘partitioning’. This involves separating the 2-digit numbers into tens and ones before adding/subtracting, and is an important step towards using the more formal column method.

The following BBC Bitesize video explains partitioning nicely (with dinosaurs!)

In our English lessons we will use Talk for Writing techniques to innovate a set of instructions based on the model text that the children have been learning in class.

And of course, there will be plenty of Nativity-related singing and dancing!

We are very proud of how hard the children have been working to learn not only their lines, but also the songs and dances for our play. Well done Year 2!

Many thanks for your continued support,

Miss Harwood & Mrs Hay
