Year 2 Update

We have had a very busy few weeks back in year 2. The children have enjoyed the start of our new topic ‘Our Wonderful World’ and learning about the adventures of Sunny the Meerkat. Sunny lives in Africa but has recently enjoyed a visit to Hatch Warren to see all the sights. From this visit the children wrote super postcards to describe his adventures around our local area.

Supertato has been helping us learn about the importance of healthy eating and exercise. We have looked at the different food groups and from this designed a healthy lunchbox ensuring++ it was a balanced diet. This then linked with our D&T, where we looked at the ingredients needed to make flapjacks and discussed how we could make it more balanced, covering more food groups. We have enjoyed cooking our flapjacks, weighing out the ingredients, chopping up the fruit and will be evaluating these soon.

 

In the children’s homework books this week you will find their logins for our new exciting Times Tables Rock Stars. By the end of Year 2 children need to know their 2’s, 5’s and 10 times tables and related division facts. We have currently set the 2 times table and will add the others in due course.

 

We had the NSPCC deliver our worship on Monday and the children brought home a sponsor form. Please support our class and school in raising some money for the NSPCC. We will be testing the children on Option 1 list 2 next Friday (2nd February). Please help Year 2 to raise lots of money.
