Welcome back to another term year 2
It was great to see all of the children from year 2 again after the Christmas break and listen to them talk about their Christmas holidays.
This week in English, the children have been learning about Speech Marks, and how to use them in their writing. This will prepare them for the new topic which we will start this Monday 'The Home Front' the children will be looking at the features of Newspaper's and how quotes are used.
The children will be researching about the Home Front and the evacuees who fled to the country side because of the war.
In Maths the children have been looking at positional movement and the language used to explain the position of objects and how to move an object. The children will have a 'Maths Week' next week and they will be focusing on Data Handling and the creation of Block graphs, tally charts and the interpretation of data. They will link this to their topic on Rationing and the War Effort.
Hope you have had a good weekend.
