Year 2's letters to Father Christmas

We have been preparing for Christmas in our classes. This week we wrote our letters to Father Christmas. We told him what we would like for Christmas, but also what we have done to deserve it. All of us finished our letters with a Christmas wish for the world. Some of the children wrote such thoughtful wishes and thought about those other people in our community. We think they definitely deserve a visit from Father Christmas.

Everyone decorated an envelope ready to pop in the post box on the way home!

Christmas Jumper Day

 

 

Maths

We have been learning how to subtract 2-digit numbers. We have learnt lots of different methods to help us. Today we used our dienes to perfect the column method. This was a good, visual way to help us understand how to exchange/rename when subtracting. 

The Dark

We have just started our new English text called 'The Dark', written by Lemony Snicket and illustrated by the wonderful Jon Klassen. We begun this topic by studying the illustration on the front cover. We then started to predict what we thought the key themes of the text may be. We acted out how we thought the main character might feel...

We also used our imaginations to draw what we thought might be down the creepy, dark basement! 

We predicted what our main character might be thinking and feeling. Have a look at what we wrote down in our thought bubbles!

We also looked at similes! We wrote different similes to describe the dark...

Anti-bullying Fortnight

Year 2 kicked off Anti-bullying fortnight by wearing their odd socks to school. We then had lots of discussions and carried out activities about standing united and what actions we can take to prevent bullying.
