In Literacy, we have continued to use our class Text ‘Traction Man’ to inspire us. This week we have been concentrating on using past tense verbs. We have written letters from the main character to Santa describing all the adventures Traction Man has been on! One of our favourites is when Traction Man saves the dolls!
In Numeracy, we have been creating Superhero potions! We have used measuring cylinders to measure out the correct volume of each ingredient. We have also started to use <,> and = to compare our volumes.
In Topic lessons, we have continued with our ‘Kindness Tree’ creations and have learned all about the use of colour and have sketched some lovely trees. In science, we have continued to make our habitats using a variety of collage materials, they are looking fantastic!
Have a wonderful weekend and thank you for your continued support.
Tuesday 21st November-Non school uniform day
Friday 24th November – Year 2 Celebration Assembly
This week, 2JC have been acting out scenes from our new story Traction Man. We used characters from the story to help us act out the scenes.
What a fantastic week it has been in Year 2!
We began our new story: Traction Man. Please ask your child about all of the amazing characters and the settings in the story book. We have continued to learn about settings, both real and imagined (fantasy).
In Maths we have begun a two week unit of lessons all about measurement. We are getting really good at measuring different objects in cm, using a ruler. You can ask your child to measure some objects around the home using a ruler.
During topic lessons we have been learning about animals and their habitats. Thank you to everyone who has bought in a small box (shoe box sized) for us to use to make an animal habitat. Please keep sending them in this week.
Finally, next week is Anti-bullying week at Shrewsbury International School. There will be Anti-Bullying bands on sale for 100 BAHT. On Monday 13th November, all pupils are encouraged to wear ‘odd socks’ to celebrate the fact that we are #AllDifferentAllEqual.
