Year 2 Latest News – Autumn 2 Week 3

This week Robin class and the other half of Owl class went on their trip to Croxley Hall Woods! We had an amazing time with the Playrangers. First, we enjoyed a big picnic with all of our friends. Then we created a huge den from scratch, using only sticks we could find in the woods. Even the adults joined in and helped too! The final creation was fantastic and we could even fit all of us inside. We also had lots of fun making a fire in a fire pit and then roasting marshmallows over it. There was also an opportunity to do arts and crafts using woodland resources, such as wood. The next day, we enjoyed discussing all the things we had done.

In English this week we have been introduced to recounts. We learned the main features of recounts such as first person, chronological order and time connectives. We also learned some skills that we need to use in our recounts: common/proper nouns and verbs/adverbs. We practised writing these in sentences and will be using them in our writing next week. You can find out about common and proper nouns here:

In maths, we continued to learn about the inverse and applied this to the context of word problems. We drew part-whole models and used our knowledge of inverse to find missing values in the questions. We then moved on to money. This week, we focussed on recognising different coins and using them to make amounts of money.

In Geography, we have started learning about aerial photos. We discussed that they are sometimes called ‘birds eye view’ photos as they are taken from above. We then looked closely at a variety of aerial photographs and tried to find human a physical features within them.

In PSHE this week we have discussed anti-bullying week and the importance of using our voices to explain when something is wrong. We completed our helping hands by adding 5 people we could go to if we are worried or there has been a problem.
