Year 2

2024 is off to a flying start! Our Year 2’s have come back to school with a spring in their step – ready to learn and be their best. Here are just a few of the fantastic things we have been up to in Year 2:

 

Maths

It’s times tables time! The children in Year 2 have been learning their 2, 5 and 10 times tables! Currently, Rowan class are #1 in the school for TTRockstars with Poplar class not far behind. The children have been using counters to show equal groups as a way of visualising their times tables. Please encourage your child to login to their TTRockstars account so that they can develop fluency in maths.

 

Computing

We started off the year learning all about spreadsheets. The children collected data from their class about the types of houses that children live in. We then presented this data on our computers. Here are some of our pictograms:

 

PE

The children have really been enjoying learning about balance through their gymnastics unit in PE. They are making sure that they perform quietly and with pointy toes – all whilst making sure that they are showing balance.

 

English

If your child has come home talking about giraffes in the swimming pool then this will be because of our English unit. We have been writing to inform in English. We have written to parents to explain the dilemma of giraffes in the pool and we will soon be writing to parents as if an animal of their choice has invaded too! Here is the video that the children were shown:
