Autumn 1:

Wow what an exciting start to year 2! Although this has been a huge change for this class they are now beginning to cope with the year 2 workload. They are a lovely class and I am so pleased to have them again. XX

In literacy the children enjoyed their experience day when they pretended to board a train to the seaside. We also had a day where we brought in scooters, skateboards and bikes. We looked at how they work and Sharon brought in her electric bike for us to look at too. We are writing a fiction narrative about a balloon ride and a non -fiction book about bikes.

In our topic work the children have learnt all about the history of transport. They have looked at Viking longboats, steam engines, hot air balloons and are now beginning to learn about the first aeroplanes.

All this excitement about travel has developed a keen interest and the children are eager to learn about space – the names of the planets etc. so we are continuing our topic after the holidays.

In our maths lessons we have been looking at addition and subtraction. We are using the part, part whole model to partition numbers into tens and ones. We are also beginning to use the column method for our addition and subtraction calculations.

Thank you for helping all this learning and events be fun!

In Computing this term, year 2 have been learning all about Coding and Programming!. They have learnt how to create algorithms using scratch JR. They have learnt all about blocks and used these to programme a character, using blocks and variables.
