Year 2 - Week beginning 21st September 2020

This week in maths we have been using place value charts to make numbers and comparing objects.  In English we have continued writing our story about Toby and the Great Fire. We have practised writing lists and using the correct punctuation within our story.  In Art we have been learning about the life of Georges Seurat and his particluar style of painting - called pointilisum.  We have had a go at creating a layered and texture picture using acrylic paint of tudor houses, flames and smoke.  

 

Reading 

The reading expectation for Year 2 children is 10 minutes daily.  In order to ensure that books are set aside for a quarantine period we now need to manage the distribution of reading books carefully. 

 

* Mrs Brand and Mrs Knight - Books to be returned on a Monday and new books handed out.  

 

* Miss Aldridge and Mrs Day - Books to be returned on a Thursday and new books handed out.

 

Please ensure that your reading books are returned on the day specified as we will be unable to change books on any other day.
