Welcome to Owl class!
Welcome back I hope you all had a lovely summer break. The children have all settled nicely into the new routine of being in Year 2. We have spent some time getting to know each other and reminding ourselves about our class rules.
In English we have written a non-chronological report about owls and found out lots of information about their habitats, eating habits and how they care for their young. Over the next few weeks we will be looking at the 'Percy the Park Keeper' stories. We will be comparing the settings in different stories and describing the characters we meet. We will be using this to help us create our own stories.
In maths we have been learning about place value and using our knowledge of the number of tens and ones in a number to solve problems. This week we will be looking at addition and subtraction, and thinking about how the number bonds can help us to find the answers more easily.
Our PE day is Thursday. Please make sure your children have a full PE kit including suitable footwear for going outside, which is fully labelled.This year, spellings will go home on Thursday so you have all weekend to practice them before our tests on Tuesdays!
Reading books are changed on a Monday but please bring your books and reading diaries every day. Finally as the weather is still quite warm please make sure that the children have a labelled water bottle in school every day.
