What's Been Happening in Year 2
The Year 2 Team wish you all a very happy new year! We hope you all had a relaxing Christmas break.
We have had a busy start to term 2 this week. We have been continuing our ‘Let’s Celebrate’ enquiry unit by researching our chosen celebrations in our classes and have been starting to present our findings in groups. We are using sub-headings and paragraphs to help us clearly organise our information.
In Writing, we have been piecing together a non-chronological text that has got muddled up. We are then going to investigate the features of this genre of writing. We will do a ‘Cold Write’ to show what we already know about writing non-chronological reports and will then learn some new ‘Writing Secrets’ to help us improve our skills.
In Maths, we have been continuing to look at multiplication; understanding this as ‘groups of’ and as ‘arrays.’ We will also look at how multiplication is the same as repeated addition. Once we have gained confidence with multiplying, we will start relating our understanding of multiplying to help us divide numbers.
