Year 2 News 7th – 11th January

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!
In maths this week we have just starting looking at multiplication, in particular how multiplication consists of groups with equal numbers. We also completed an Arithmetic paper so that we could assess any gaps that the children may have. We were very pleased with the progress the children have made as many more than doubled their scores!

In Literacy we have been looking at traditional tales ahead of the whole school trip to see Aladdin. In particular we looked at personality traits of Little Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks. We decided, as a class, that Little Red Riding Hood was a good character but Goldilocks was a bad character who walked into someone’s house and messed with their things without their permission!

Our topic for this half term is the Great Fire of London and we began this by looking at London landmarks and created a timeline so the children could see how many hundreds of years ago it took place. We are in the process of turning our book corner into the bakery in Pudding Lane with a burning London in the distance. When it is finished we will post a picture.

On the Year 1 page there is a list of very useful web pages to support the children’s learning in this topic.
