Year 2 News

Autumn Term 1 Week 3 - 15 September 2021

We have had a wonderful first few weeks in Year Two. The children came back after the Summer holiday full of enthusiasm, with big smiles on their faces and ready to learn! We began by talking about rules, routines and expectations. The children have helped to create a class charter; thinking about what we all need to do to make sure we have a safe and happy learning environment. 

In Maths, we have been securing our place value knowledge of numbers up to 50. We have spent lots of time making sure we really understand what each number looks like, representing them with practical equipment. By understanding how many tens and ones are in numbers, we are able to compare, order and sequence them. 

In English, we have been reading In My Heart: A Book of Feelings. We have been exploring a range of different feeling and emotions, describing what they might look and feel like. 

In the afternoons, we have been looking at the work of artist Frida Kahlo. We have been building on a range of skills, such as observing and sketching facial features and experimenting with tones and tints for skin and hair. This led us to creating our very own self-portraits. We even had a go at creating our own portraits in nature, using materials and objects that we could find outside.
