YEAR 2 : Jeffers and Rosen
This term, all of our learning has been around animals and habitats. We have written about a wombat’s day, an adventure story and advertising for a new habitat. Our topic has looked at exploring the question ‘Where is the most suitable place for a tiger to live?’. To answer this we looked at animal habitats, micro-habitats and the food chain. In maths, we have learnt all about place value and the composition of numbers. In PE we created beautiful dances and in RE we have discussed what Jesus teaches people about kindness.
What have we been learning?
Our learning has been around the world and our big question – How can we find out about continents and oceans. We looked at the oceans, continents, United Kingdom and features. In literacy, we used the book called ‘Rough-Face Girl’ to inspire our writing. In maths, we have been working on adding and subtracting through the ten with numbers up to 100. We’ve also started to learn the basics of multiplications. We have also become experts at taking photographs in computing. Finally, we also learned how to sew using a running stitch.
All our learning has been around how animals stay healthy, answering our question – What keeps animals and people going? We recapped what animals need to survive then moved onto nutrition, exercise and hygiene. In literacy, we wrote our own ‘Little Red’ traditional tales and wrote a recount of some fun activities in the playground. In maths, we have been working hard on learning our 2, 5 and 10 times tables. We ended the term with a day focused around being safe online and also learned to prepare fruits smoothies!
We have introduced Year 2 to Times Table Rockstars this term, which will support them in learning their times tables but please still encourage them to use Numbots too!
We also had an exciting day learning all about Spanish culture!
