What a lovely week we have had in Year 2!

In English, we used our book ‘The Comet’ to create contrasting paragraphs about cities and the countryside. We used appropriate adjectives and our senses to add to our descriptions. Next week, we will be starting our new book and looking at non-fiction writing.

In Maths, we learnt to add by making 10. We used ten frames and part-part-whole models to help us:

Please find the worksheets here: Maths Worksheets W4 blog  Next week, we are learning how to add three 1-digit-numbers.

Also, here is a link to a maths game where your child can practice their bonds to 10.

In Geography, we started using grid references to locate different landmarks in London. We also revisited our continents using the continents song: Seven Continents Geography Song – YouTube

In Phonics, we have been learning the /oe/ sound this week. Please see below some of the words we have been learning to read, write and spell.

goat, show, bone, though

In STEM, we have learnt how different animals are adapted to their habitats around the world. Please see extra information on habitats here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zx882hv
