We have had another wonderful week in Year 2, and have been particularly excited to see each other’s plants that have been grown for homework – our balcony looks like a mini garden centre!!
In Literacy, we have continued with our gardener poem and the children have had the most fantastic ideas for their own ‘character’ for their poem. Their plans are coming together ready to write their finished pieces next week. They have been using adjectives, similes and alliteration for detailed description.
In Maths, we have started to look at comparing and ordering length and mass. We have introduced the > and < signs and used the related vocabulary. The children have enjoyed this introduction with lots of practical activities.
In Topic, we are coming to the end of our plant investigations and the children are excited to see the results and check if their predictions were correct – we have some surprises!! They have also really impressed us with the time and care they have put into their art work and we have seen some impressive finished pieces.
Thank you for all your support with the Topic homework; the children got a lot from it and are proud of their achievements.
