What a lovely first week we have had together in Year 2. The children have settled into the school year well and have tried their best all week.
We are celebrating Diversity at Pope Paul School this year and the children have been learning that Diversity means differences. In class the children have shared what makes them unique and how our differences make us special.
In Maths, the children have been looking at regrouping and two digit numbers. They have used many different ways to represent numbers using resources, pictures and number sentences. In RE the children have been looking at and discussing our school mission statement.
We have had a lot of fun in PE, learning new games and solving problems together. Our PE days will be on Tuesday and Wednesday this term. Please ensure your child comes to school in their Pope Paul PE kit on these days. Despite it being very hot this week, the children have enjoyed playing outside together.
Our first English task was to describe ourselves – these pieces of writing are proudly on display in the classroom. The story we are using for our first English unit is Aliens love underpants, written by Claire Freedman and Ben Cort. The children have edited sections from the story and completed comprehension task based on it. Next week they will be using their ordering and describing skills.
Reading – next week your child will bring home their reading record and book. Thank you for sending in their Y1 reading records. Their reading days will be the same as they were in Y1 for now.
