Its been another busy week in year 2! The class have engaged in our new topic fantastically. World Ocean Day was a fantastic introduction to our seaside topic and we continued our learning this week by looking at the geographical features of coasts, determining whether they were ‘physical’ or ‘human’. The class also had a brilliant Bio Blitz session on Wednesday morning with Mrs Richards.
In English this week we have been looking at the text ‘The Disgusting Sandwich’. We have read and learned the pattern of the text and started to collect a bank of the super description in the story and will use this to generate our own description! Next week, we will be imagining our own disgusting sandwiches based on ‘The Disgusting Sandwich’ story. We will also begin learning about prepositions and prepositional phrases to describe where something is in relation to something else.
In maths we have continued our unit on telling the time. We have looked at o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to and have even started telling the time to 5 minute intervals. We will continue with this next week!
Next week we will be taking part in sports day. Children are asked to come to wearing their team colours.
Green – Emerald
Yellow – Diamond
Red – Ruby
Purple – Amethyst
Blue – Sapphire
They will wear PE shorts and plimsoles/trainers with their Team T shirt (don’t worry if you haven’t got one as normal PE tops will be okay) I will send home PE kits on Tuesday.
* What can you do at home to support your child’s learning?
Keep reading and recording in your child’s reading diary.
Keep hammering mental arithmetic. A great website is: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button
Try one of the task from the Topic Home learning Grid.
Keep the children thinking about time, using a clock face to practice working out the time at 5 minute intervals.

It would be great to have parents to help walk the children down to the playing fields Wednesday morning and back at lunchtime. Let me know if you are able to join us!
