MESSAGES

  • On the 16 June the Year 2 children will have a rainforest dress up day. All the children are encouraged to dress up as a rainforest animal. This will also be the day of the Year 2 learning showcase.

Literacy

In Literacy this week the children will become poets. They will begin the week by exploring how nouns, verbs  and adjectives can be used to create descriptive sentences. Once they have explored this concept they will begin to write silly poetic sentences. At the end of the week the children  write poetic sentences about the rainforest. 

Maths

In Maths the children will complete work on addition and subtraction. The focus of this week’s learning will be ensuring that the children can add and subtract  using a consistent method. The children will either use a pictoral method, choose to break the numbers down through partitioning or draw a number line to help them bridge to ten.
