Year 2 have had a wonderful week and we have been blown away with their creativity and dedication to learning.
In English, we have continued looking at the book ‘Journey’. We have used the book as a stimulus to write free verse poetry and the creativity has been wonderful! Children imagined themselves as different objects and used adjectives and verbs to make their writing interesting. We also worked on oracy skills and the children built up to performing their poems. In phonics we have been looking at different ways to make the /e/ sound.
In Maths, we have been looking at addition when bridging 10. We have focused on using different representations to show this: part-part-whole models and tens frames. This is a tricky concepts but the children are doing wonderfully! To insure fluency, we started with lots of practical application of skills using resources before going on to written methods. We have attached this weeks independent activities that were completed in lesson. Maths Sheets Week 4.
