Welcome to Year 2
Please note that this week there are two different learning logs or your children to complete. If your child is in Mrs Swatton's Numeracy group, they need to complete the top learning log. If your child is in Mrs Luffingham's Numeracy group, they need to complete the bottom of the two. Should you have any questions, please see your child's class teacher.
In Science this week, we have been learning about what humans and animals need to stay healthy. We looked at the five different food groups and discussed how and why each of these are important and how some things to need to be eaten in moderation. The children demonstrated a very good understanding of why we only eat small amounts of some foods and the effects that these can have. We played games where the children had to sort food into the five groups. Please see the pictures below.
Later in the term, the year 2 teachers will be introducing 'Times Tables Rock Stars' to the children. Please find below an introductory powerpoint presentation to support your understanding of how Times Tables Rock Stars works. Children will spend three minutes per day on their times table questions and their scores/time will correlate to a rock star character. The challenge is to get all 60 answered and correct within the allotted time.
