Year 2 Newsletter

Friday 6 March 2015

What have we done this week?

We have:

  • completed reading, writing and maths assessment tasks
  • talked about attributes a person needs and made 'jelly babies' to show these amazing people we want to be!
  • thought carefully about what makes a good story
  • corrected a story that was missing punctuation to make it readable!

Next Week

We will read the story of Robin Hood and begin to explore who he was and whether he really existed or not! The children will also sequence the story and re-tell it in their own words before exploring alternative versions of the story.

In Maths, Ms Bintcliffe's group will be looking at adding 2 digit numbers using a blank number line and Miss Macdonald will be looking at fractions.
