Year 2 Weekly review
REVIEW OF THE WEEK (week ending Friday 26th April 2019)
This week we have introduced our new text – Maximus and the Beanstalk. It tells the well-known tale of Jack and the Beanstalk from an entirely new perspective. We have been using drama to explore the viewpoints of different characters in the story and have made predictions about what we think might happen next in the story based on what we already know of the famous fairy tale.
We revisited our work on time and are consolidating our skills when reading quarter past, half past and a quarter to the hour. We are now reading the time in more detail using our five times table knowledge to count in increments of five.
This half term we will be looking at animals (including humans) in greater depth and thinking about what all animals need to live and reproduce.
Next Week (week beginning Monday 29th April 2019)
Next week we will be completing Maximus and the Beanstalk and writing our own versions of the story. We are thinking carefully about apostrophes for possession and commas in lists of adjectives at the moment.
We will be learning how to identify at a variety of different shapes and thinking about different properties of shapes.
We are very excited to be welcoming our new classroom caterpillars into school next week. We will be following their transformation into beautiful butterflies as the term progresses!
We are all looking forward to what looks like a wonderful summer term!
Miss Austin, Mr Westland and Miss Lapish.
