Year 2 Weekly Review
Friday 1st December 2023
We have had yet another very busy and productive week in Year 2. We completed our DT unit based all around building a strong and stable chair for Baby Bear, learnt about the Hindu celebration of Diwali in RE, used the knowledge we have accumulated during our Science topic ‘Shaping Up’ to decide on which materials would be best suited to making a range of different objects, as well as continuing with The Little Wandle spelling scheme, which the children are all very enthusiastic about.
This week in Maths we have consolidated our work on the unit focused on adding and subtracting 10 to two-digit numbers. We used part-part-whole models to highlight the relationship between subtraction and addition equations. The children were brilliant at using their ‘fact families’, so we then looked at adding multiples of 10 to 2 digit numbers.
In English we started the immersion stage of our new text ‘If All The World Were…’ by Joseph Coelho and Allison Colpoys. It is a book of poetry, filled with the most beautiful illustrations and the children have greatly enjoyed looking at the pictures and discussing some of the poetic devices used in the text.
In PHSE we looked at what we can do to help develop a growth mindset, as a way to deal with the challenges we all face every single day, both at home and school. We are encouraging the children to look at mistakes as a vital part of the learning journey, rather than a failure and reason to give up.
