A message to our blog readers around the world

In year 2 we regularly check to see which countries have had a look at our blog. The children are always amazed by this and it really shows them the power of the internet and how far it reaches. So a huge thank you from myself and the children for taking the time to read what we have been up to and have an incredible Christmas!

Next week's learning

Next week we will be starting a unit in maths on time and measurement. We will be making little watches but if they have their own analogue watches it would be lovely if they wore it to school for the week. Nothing too expensive though please as they do tend to take them off to show/share!
In English we are writing our reports. The children have all chosen something they would like to write about so if you could talk to them about this, it might give them some more facts to write about.
We are still working on the Christmas play and you are in for a treat! We will be wanting to slowly reduce the use of scripts over the next few days so the more practise the better please!

A day in London

I went to London. I saw a disco bus with people and Trafalgar square. I went on the London Eye and the people looked like ants.

We've got mail!

Thank you Marcus Rashford! We were so excited to receive another delivery. A signed Manchester United book! We were so pleased with this so we went to show the other classes our special delivery. 

This weeks PE lesson

We are currently developing team ga,Es and learning how to work more effectively as a team. We are talking about defence and attacking skills with our group and how to ensure our team stays in the game. You can see how much fun this is but also how serious these team talks are!

Next week's learning

Next week in maths we will be learning about multiplication and division. We will be using number lines to count on in groups for this. We will also look at counting into groups using objects-lentils or small toys would work for this at home.
In English we will be starting a new unit on reports, the children will need to think of an animal they are really interested in so if you could talk to them about this at home that would be great.
We will also be sending home the passwords for Prodigy in homework books on Monday as some of you have asked for these. This isn't an app we have used in year 2 so far but the children enjoyed it so much last year we thought that they could continue using it from home.
We are starting our rehearsals in the hall this week so if you can work on the children's lines with them that would be amazing-the costumes are starting to come out of storage this week but if you have any spare bits we would really appreciate it!

Remembrance art work

We thought you would enjoy some of our art from the last week. We are excited as we showing this in our assembly today. We used oil pastels to create our pictures and then blended using our fingers (sorry if we came home slightly multi-coloured!).
