Year 2 latest news

We have enjoyed our first week back at school after the Easter break and celebrated together with our Spring Parade. We had fun singing songs and showing our special hats, flags and posters.

We have been introduced to our new topic ‘Let’s tour the world’ by reading stories from around the world. We have also written our own version of ‘The Everywhere Bear’ by Julia Donaldson describing a bear’s adventure to different places around the world.

In maths, we have been recapping multiplication and division and explored how the relationship between them can help us calculate the answer. For example; if I know that 4 x 5 = 20, then 20 divided by 5 = 4.
