One Childhood, One Chance

Team Turquoise and Team Cyan Weekly News w/b 7th June

It has been lovely to have year 2 back for the summer term! We have been so busy, here’s what we got up to.

Guided Reading

This week we began reading Grace and Family by Mary Hoffman. We began the week by using clues on the front cover to predict what the story might be about. We then came up with some excellent questions to ask Grace and practised hot seating. We also practised answering comprehension questions using the book to help us.


We have produced some fantastic writing this week inspired by Grace and Family. At the start of the week, we wrote about our own families and described them using lots of fantastic adjectives. Later in the week, we learnt how to use emotive adjectives to describe how Graces feelings changed through out the story. We wrote our own recounts of an exciting day we have had recently and how our emotions changed.

Next week, we will continue to use adjectives in our writing and we will be learning to use conjunctions.


In maths this week, we have been learning all about fractions! We have recapped how to find fractions of shape and fractions of amount. We used fraction walls to learn about equivalent fractions. Then challenged ourselves to compare fractions of amount with our learning partners. Finally, we were learning to count in fractions.

Next week, we will be focusing on statistics. 


On Tuesday, we were learning all about aspirations and spoke about what our dream jobs would be and why. We learnt about lots of different jobs and why they were important. We then spent an afternoon designing our dream library, we thought about the budget we had and what items we would be able to afford.

Towards the end of the week, we moved onto RE and learnt about Sikhs and what they believe.

Next week, we will be starting our new topic Ready Steady Sow and Grow!
