This week in English we are learning about the key features of a non-fiction text. We will identify features such as the glossary, contents and index pages and we will have a go at writing our own non-fiction booklet about The Great Fire of London. Alongside this, we will look at the appropriate style of writing for an information text and compare this to the style used in a fiction book.
In Maths this week we will be learning about multiplication and division. We will be looking at the 2, 5 and 10 times tables and use these to help us when reasoning and problem solving. We will begin to understand the inverse operation of division and identify the related division facts. We will then use these facts when solving word problems.
This week we are focusing on art. We will be looking at different colours and working out how they make us feel. We will make our own colour wheel and focus on the idea of hot and cold colours. The children will be given the opportunity to do some block printing this week where they create a pattern on a polystyrene board then use this to print with.
We've had another fantastic week in Year 2!
We really enjoyed finding out about different careers. A huge thank you to those of you who answered the questions your children brought home about what jobs you do. We loved seeing all the children dressed up in their chosen career uniform. We had everything from a farmer to a rocket scientist and everything in between! The children were all given a job in their classrooms and got paid! It really was a great week!
