Welcome back to Term 2!

We have had a busy first week in Year 2 and have enjoyed embracing our new topic -'Journeys'. Our English work has been based on the beautiful book 'Journey' by Aaron Becker. It gives us the opportunity to be really creative as there are no words. We have used our imaginations to ask questions of the characters this week and explore our interpretations of the pictures. In Maths, we have been getting really whizzy at adding multiples of 10 to any 2-digit number and have extended this to adding near 10s using 2 steps on our hundred square. 

Next week, we will begin to story map our own versions of 'Journey', breaking the parts into five key sections (using a method we call 'Boxing up'). In Maths, we will be thinking about giving clear and simple directions and we will be measuring using decimetres. 

Spellings - we are really pleased with amount of home learning taking place. A large number of children are well prepared for their weekly test and this gives them great confidence. We hope to see these words spelt correctly within the children's writing too. We have now created three spelling groups to ensure your child is focusing on appropriate spellings for their level.

Homework - new homework tasks will be sent out next week. The theme for these is Journeys/Christmas.

For those of you who were unable to make our 'Meet the Teachers' event, here is the presentation we shared - if you have any questions, please do ask.

Have a lovely weekend,

The Year 2 team.
