Weekly News w/b Monday 7th November- Team Indigo and Team Royal
Another fantastic week of learning from Year 2 this week!
As previously mentioned, some children will be completing RWI and some have started English with their class teachers.
In English this week, we have started to look at The Gruffalo's Child by Julia Donaldson. This week we have focused our learning on reading skills such as reading with expression, considering questions we would ask the characters, completing comprehensions on the book and later in the week we started to sequence events using time conjunctions such as first, then, later, next, after that, meanwhile, finally.
In Maths this week we have been looking at multiplication! We started the week by looking at odd and even numbers. We learnt that is we look at the ones digit, this will help us to know if a number is odd or even. If we can divide that number by 2 and for there to be no remainders it would be even and if there was a remainder the number would be odd.
We then moved our learning on to learning about repeated addition. We looked at pictures and created repeated addition calculations such as...
We then linked this learning to multiplication. We used language such as lots of, groups of, multiplied by and times. This array would show 5X 3 as it is 5 lots of 3.
Next week we will be looking at division focusing on the grouping and sharing method.
In PSHE this week, we have been looking about kindness and anti bullying. At the beginning of the week we celebrated gratitude by creating our own gratitude jars where we had to fill them with all things we were thankful for. It was a very heartwarming lesson to hear all the children's wonderful ideas! We then discussed the definition of bullying and discussed what bullying might look like, sound like and how it might make you feel. The children showed so much respect and maturity when discussing these subjects. We finished the week by reminding the children who they can talk to in school if there is ever a problem or they feel like something hasn't been resolved.
