Year 2

Weekly Update Friday 7th June 2024

A Summary of Our learning:

This week, we welcomed your children back or their final half term in Year 2- I cannot believe how fast this year has gone! In English, the children were completing writing based on The Great Kapok Tree by Lynn Cherry. They wrote beautiful setting descriptions about the rainforest. They also wrote persuasive letters from the tree’s point of view. In maths, the children were revisiting division of the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. In science, the children were looking at the results of their comparative enquiry to see what plants need to survive.

 

 Our learning next week:

 

English

The children will be learning a talk story based on the Great Kapok Tree. They will also plan their own story based in a new habitat. 

Spelling
