Times Tables Rock Stars

Happy New Year!

Welcome back!

Thank you for our generous cards and gifts,

we hope you all have a lovely break over Christmas.

The children have already made a great start to this term especially in terms of following our Golden Values; Being Ready, Respectful, Kind and Safe.

 

 

Take a peak at what last we did in Year 2 last Spring....

Some unofficial homework

During the holidays it would be really helpful if the children could practise;

  • times tables facts for 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s (and 4s as this would help with fractions of numbers)
  • learn off by heart double and halves of 2 digit numbers
  • learn off by heart number bonds to 10, 20 &100
  • practise methods for answering calculations (refer to most recent homework) 

 

Have a lovely Easter!

Science Week 

The theme for this year's British Science week is 'journey's', encouraging young people to think about the different scientific journeys that happen everyday and how they can discover science through their own lives and experiences. It is also a chance for young people to consider how journeys can help us experience more of the world around us.

In Year 2 we chose the following activities;

Journey's on Earth and Beyond

Make it Fly and Sneeze Zone

Electric Journeys

Matilda's Floating Feat

Journey's through Nature

Pollution Sollution and Under your feet and Nature Walk Diary

We've been very busy as you can see below!

Mr Hamblett day

This morning we've had a great time hunting for natural and man made materials under the snow. We have also observed snow carefully and made snowflakes from paper. But the best was yet to come; In the afternoon we toasted marshmallows on the fire pit!
