It has been another very successful and positive week in year 2, with some super highlights!
In English, children have enjoyed writing their own versions of 'The Piano and the Bear'. They have been working hard to use what they have been taught in their writing to make their sentences more detailed and interesting, especially thinking about how to use coordinating and subordination conjunctions to develop their compound sentences. They are really looking forward to next week when we will publish their work and create our own class pop up book, containing all their wonderful stories.
In maths, we have now moved onto learning about multiplication and division. Please keep supporting your young people at home with their times table: it really does help them in their class learning. If anyone needs any support with this, please let us know, and we will be happy to help.
In history, we have been learning all about the life and work of Mary Seacole. The children were quick to recognise the incredible contribution she made, in the face of the many difficulties and social injustices which she overcame. I am sure that the children would be keen to share what they have learnt about this remarkable, historic person, so please do ask them.
Finally, Beech Class has become a new Quiet Room at lunchtimes, where those children in KS1 who would like to spend a quieter lunchtime away from the main playground, can come and work on mindful colouring. A huge thank you to all of those children in year 2 who have used this opportunity so well this week; they set a brilliant example to the reception and year 1 children who have attended. Well done to you all.
Wishing you all a very enjoyable weekend.
