Autumn Term

Our learning for week beginning 23rd November 2020

English

 

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.

 

 

 

 

If you child is self isolating, here are the resources for home learning for English this week.

Maths

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.

 

Topic

 

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.

If your child is self isolating, here are the resources to support their learning.
Here are some extra websites that can help with your child's learning
In our phonics lessons we are learning the short sound i and the long sound I, the short sound o and the long sound O.  We will be looking at the hard and soft sounds for c and g.  We will be reading and writing these sounds in words and sentences. The tricky words we will be learning are little, one and said (spelling) and water, where, who (reading).

 

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!
