Year 2 Blog Week 12

The Year 2 classroom has been a hive of activity this week. In English, we have been learning about The Legend of the Poinsettia. There is an old Mexican legend about how Poinsettias and Christmas come together. The children thoroughly enjoyed finding out about the ‘Flowers of the Holy Night’ and everyone created some fantastic story maps. Thank you to Eric for bringing in a beautiful Poinsettia for our classroom! Watch this space for our finished retellings of The Legend of the Poinsettia. 

In Maths this week, we have been looking at reasoning problems. The children worked well at solving these problems and explaining the reasons for their answers.

Can you solve this number problem?

I am not below 20.     I am a multiple of 5.    One of my digits is 5.     I am above 21.

Add my digits and the total is 7.

Who am I?    12    43    25    6     35    15
