This week in Year 2:

Friday 8th September 2017.

It has been fantastic to welcome all the new Year 2's back to school. They have settled in well and are getting used to a new classroom and new expectations.

In English we have written about our summer holiday and learnt how to edit and improve our writing. We have also begun our class text: The BFG.

In Maths we have worked on counting. We have sung songs, performed actions and played games to practise counting in ones, twos, threes, fives and tens starting from different numbers and going forwards and backwards. There has been some brilliant teamwork, especially when playing number ping pong as you can see on the photos below.

We have also made a timetable wheel which will help the children to be more independent and help you to know what happens on which day. The children will bring them home next week.

Most children have brought home a reading book and library book today. On the inside cover is their password for an app / website called Sumdog. They can play games on this that will help with Maths so it is worth having a look at!

Finally, you should have received a variety of letters and information today. One of these is the new class dojo. This is where the children are awarded their house points so you can connect at home and see how well they are doing. You can also see photos and messages that I post or send me a message if you need to know anything. Please find your code and connect and I will say hi!
