Santa dash Friday 11 December
School menu change and Christmas meal
For the rest of the half term, we are focusing athletics.
This week, we have been practicing jumping and sprinting.
What amazing athletes we have in Year 2!
Animals and their young
This half term, we have been learning about animals including humans.
In our last lesson, we learnt that animals, including humans,
have offspring which grow into adults.
The children worked in groups to match the adult to their offspring.
Living and Learning: Strong emotions
In our last L&L, we were learning about emotions.
First, we named lots of emotions we might feel.
Then, we focused on exploring and describing what makes us feel unhappy.
The Children then were given the opportunity to explain when they might feel unhappy, and also to practice asking, and listening to, others about what makes them unhappy.
After that, we discussed things we can do when we are feeling unhappy.
Finally, we discussed things that make us happy.
Virtual after-school sport club

Bridging through ten
In our recent maths lessons, we have been recapping bridging through 10.
Bridging through ten is a method that many people use (possibly without realising it!) to add numbers mentally.
The bridging through 10 strategy can also be used to add a one-digit number to a two-digit number, for example:
Can you spot your learning? .
Parents, ask your child to teach you this mental maths strategy.
Expanded noun phrases
In our recent writing sessions, the children have been adding description to their sentences using expanded noun phrases.
An expanded noun phrase adds more detail to the noun by adding one or more adjectives. An adjective is a word that describes a noun.
We will be using these expanded noun phrases in our stories about the Great Fire of London.
