It has been another fun-filled week of creative learning in Year 2. In Religion, we have been focusing on our Lenten practices. Lent is a time when we pray, give up treats and do kind things for other people, as we prepare to celebrate the great feast of Easter. On Wednesday, KS1 came together for our Ash Wednesday Act of Worship to mark the start of Lent. In class, the children thought very carefully about their Lenten promises and placed them on the display in the hall during our whole school Lenten assembly.
In Maths, we have been concentrating on telling the time. We pretended to be clocks, turning clockwise and anti-clockwise. There were lots of hands turning … half turns, full turns, quarter turns. Everyone used great reasoning to prove their times. In English, we are enjoying reading The Adventures of the Dish and Spoon by Mini Grey. The children thought of lots of great questions to ask the characters in preparation for our character hot seating activity next week.
The children brought their favourite characters to life this week as we celebrated World Book Day. All of the costumes were brilliant and it was wonderful to hear the children talking about their characters and books with such enthusiasm. Year 2 proudly showed off their costumes at a whole school assembly. Great fun was had by all!
Home Learning: Maths worksheet mixed problems and Reading comprehension. World Book Day tokens placed safely in Home Learning packs.
