Reading books will be sent home every MONDAY and are due back by the following FRIDAY please (they then have the weekend before being handed back out)

Maths 

We have been looking at place value since starting Year 2 and have used lots of concrete resources to help us. 

We took our Maths lesson outside and completed our comparing numbers with leaves, twigs and rose buds. 

For the next 2 weeks, we will be using the resources and our pictorial skills to subtract 2 and 1 digits from numbers. 

Phonics

In light of Year 2 having to take their phonics screening test this half term, we have sent home phonics booklets for you to work through at home. We are also practicing our phonic sounds everyday. See below some of our sounds we are working on this week.

English 

Our second text for Year 2 is called 'Sir Charlie Stinky Socks and The Really Big Adventure'. 

A young boy named Charlie packs up his suitcase and heads into a deep, dark forest. We are so excited in Year 2 to find out what happens on Charlie's really big adventure.

To begin with, we have made predictions about what we think the book will be about. We predicted that it is a fiction book, there is a boy as a main character and that on his adventure he might meet a princess who lives in a tower protected by a fire-breathing dragon.

We have listened to the first minute of the book and have used our senses to start describing what we can see, hear and smell.

Curriculum 

'What was life like in Medieval Britain?'

This is the big question Year 2 will be answering over our Autumn curriculum focus.

We will be learning what life was like in Medieval Britain through our History, Art and D&T lessons. 

Watch this space to see what we have been learning. 

We have located when the Medieval times were on a time line of historical events in History and can even tell the centuries that it lasted for.  We have also labelled the parts and defences of a castle 

Something terrible has happened. Lady Adair's castle has BURNT DOWN! She has no where to live! It is so sad and Year 2 have decided to help Lady Adair by looking for a new castle for her.
