Week Beginning 14th November 2016

I hope you all had a weekend. Don’t forget this week is parents’ evenings.

In English this week we will be continuing with poetry writing.

In Mathematics we are continuing with work on multiplication and division. This will be our focus for the next couple of weeks. In Y2 pupils are taught to

  • recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables, including recognising odd and even numbers
  • calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division within the multiplication tables and write them using the multiplication (.), division (÷) and equals (=) signs
  • show that multiplication of two numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and division of one number by another cannot
  • solve problems involving multiplication and division, using materials, arrays, repeated addition, mental methods, and multiplication and division facts, including problems in contexts.

Our handwriting focus is the l group of letters – l t h b d f

In phonics/spelling the focus is silent letters. We continue in all lessons to develop and reinforce the use of different spelling strategies.

In RE our unit of work is called Good News. The key questions of the unit are - How does the Bible show Jesus living his life as good news to people? How do you know when you feel better? On the outside? On the inside.

In Science we are continuing to look at Materials. We have been using observation skills around school and learning how to record work. We have set up an experiment to test materials and we be conducting some further experiments either this week or next depending on how time goes.

Our PE days are now Monday and Wednesday.

Reading Books
The children are welcome to change their reading book as often as they like but I would ask that you sign the reading record book when they have read to you or to themselves at home.
