Literacy

This half term, we will be exploring the story of The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch. 

This week, we have been writing reviews and beginning to use inverted commas.  

Science

 This half term, our Science unit is Materials and their properties. Over the next few weeks, we will continue to assess different materials properties and their suitability for different jobs. This week, we completed an assessment to see what we have learnt. We have learnt so many new properties and showed great progress!

Some of our favourite properties were transparent, opaque, flexible, waterproof, absorbent, durable, buoyant and breakable.

Safeguarding Week

The whole of Year 2 have been focusing on keeping themselves healthy as part of this year's Safeguarding Week.

The children all enjoyed a visit from Dr Kuhan, who shared lots of interesting facts and tips on the importance of washing our hands and keeping ourselves clean. 2AW are making a great effort to wash their hands before and after eating now that they have taken part in some germ investigations, allowing them to experience how quickly germs can spread.

Maths

This week, we have been developing our place value knowledge further and learnt some new tricky vocabulary, such as "multiples!".

Time is something that lots of children find tricky to conquer. Here are links to some great interactive resources to practise reading o'clock, half past and quarter times at home:
