Autumn 1

Week beginning 14th September 2020


Welcome back to school everyone.

We have had a very busy week in Year 2!

In our English lessons we have been exploring our outdoor areas and then writing poems about our experiences using adjectives eg

Wet grass under my feet 

Fluffy clouds floating by

Crunchy leaves on the ground  

We have tried really hard with our letter formation, remembering to use our 'leads' so that we will be able to join our handwriting later in the year!


In Maths we have been counting, reading and writing numbers to 100.

We have also been consolidating our understanding of place value eg

69 = 6 tens and 9 ones

75 = 70 and 5

1 ten and 3 ones =13


In our Topic lessons we have been learning about the 7 continents of the world.

We have found out about some of the physical and human features of each of these continents and the kinds of animals that live there.


Please continue to practise your sounds using the cards sent home before lockdown.

Your child will be tested on these later in the Autumn term. Thank you.


Have a lovely weekend.
