Year 2 Weekly Updates on Learning 2023 - 2024

Friday 17th May

 

This week in English we have read the poem The Treasures by Clare Bevan.

We listened to music to inspire us as we wrote poems about a lark.

We have also revised the suffixes ful and less and used the words we have created to make our writing really interesting.

colour---colourful

colour---colourless

 

 

In Maths, we have continued to think about positioning in geometry.

We also learnt about right angles and made our own right angle checkers

The children have been learning and applying the following vocabulary:

position

left

right

forwards

backwards

quarter turn

three quarter turn

clockwise

anticlockwise

right angle

 

In RE this week we have continued to focus on The Fruits of The Holy Spirit. We have looked at the different ways that the Holy spirit is represented (wind, fire water a dove) and responded to how they make us feel.

 

                            “God’s love poured into us by the Holy Spirit.”

Friday 10th May

 

We applied what we learnt last week about fact files, in our RE writing this week.

We have revisited homophones, investigating words that sound the same but are spelt differently and have different meanings.

EG their there they’re

      too to two

 

In Maths, we have been using positional language to locate people and objects and to solve problems.

The children have been learning and applying the following vocabulary:

 

position

left

right

forwards

backwards

quarter turn

three quarter turn

clockwise

anticlockwise

right angle

                                                                                                               

In RE this week we have been looking at Saints and how the fruits of The Holy Spirit were reflected in their lives. The children then wrote fact files about their chosen saint. We continued to reflect on how Christians receive the attributes of these gifts when they are received into The Church at Baptism.

Paul said “The Spirit produces love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility and self-control.”

Friday 3rd May

 

We started the week by looking at the features of a fact file. We then collected information and created fact files about chicks in anticipation of our chicks hatching next week.

We continued to look at poetry, focussing on The Sound Collector by Roger McGough. We thought of a huge bank of sounds and then wrote our own sound collector poem.

 

In Maths, we have been looking at fractions.

We have used the key vocabulary

numerator ,denominator and vinculum ( the line that separates the two) equal parts/groups

          The numerator is how many groups you need

                             The denominator is how many equal groups there are altogether.

 

 

We have started to look at non unit fractions where the numerator is greater than 1

E.G. ¾ , 2/3, 2/4

We had great fun making non unit fraction pizzas and then moved onto finding fractions of numbers.

¾ of 12

The denominator tells us that we need 4 equal groups

 

 

The numerator tells us that we need to count 3 of those groups so…

¾ of 12 =9

 

In RE this week we have learnt about St. Paul who was originally called Saul. He became a Christian and spread The Good News. He told The Galatians all about the fruits of The Holy Spirit.

Paul said “The Spirit produces love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility and self-control.”

 

Friday 26th April

This week in English we investigated the features of a recount. Following our exciting trip to Thriftwood the children wrote a recount of their day remembering to:

  • Use past tense verbs
  • Focus on a few important events
  • Write in chronological order
  • Use emotive language
  • Include a beginning, middle and end
  • End with a reflection

We have continued to work on division this week in Maths.

The children are seeing the relationship between multiplication and division and have been applying their knowledge of the 2, 5 and 10 times tables to solve and check division problems.

30 ÷ 5 =

5 X 6 = 30

So 30 ÷ 5 = 6

 

We started our new R.E. topic this week, To the Ends of the Earth. The children learnt about The Ascension and reflected on how the disciples felt when Jesus had gone back to heaven. They also wrote a diary entry recording the events of Pentecost when they were filled with The Holy Spirit as God had prophesised.

Friday 19th April

 

This week in English we have started our new Power of Reading book, Poems to Perform by Julia Donaldson.

We listened to The Rhythm of Life by Michael Rosen and wrote our own poems following the same style.

 

In Maths we have started to look at division by grouping.

 

12 ÷ 2 = 6

 

We have learnt that 12 is the dividend the total that we have.

We have learnt that 2 is the divisor the amount in each group we have created.

We have learnt that that 6 is the quoitient  the number of groups that we have created.

 

  2       2      2       2       2      2

 

The children have applied their knowledge of counting in 2s 5s and 10s to help them solve these division problems.

 

In RE our topic Desert to Garden has come to a close. The children reflected on all that they have learnt and thought about how good and bad choices can always be forgiven.

Friday 22nd March

 

We created our vegetable soup in our DT learning this week. We applied all the skills we had learnt to create a soup that we then tasted and evaluated.

 

Thank you to those who donated vegetables.

 

We then wrote a set of clear instructions explaining what to do it.

The instructions needed to be:

  • Numbered
  • In sequence
  • Contain ‘bossy’ (imperative) verbs

 

 

In maths we have returned to our multiplication topic.

We have investigated and created our own rules regarding the value of factors.

Eg If one of the factors is 0 the product will also be zero.

 

0X1=0

0X2=0

If one of the factors is 1 the product will be the same as the other factor

Eg

 

1X5=5

1X8=8

 

In R.E this week we read the story of Easter Sunday. We created Easter cards and wrote a diary entry from the view point of the ladies who visited the tomb.

 

 “He’s come back to life again just as He said He would.” Mathew 28:1-8

Friday 15th March

 

In English this week we have continued with our theme of Diary writing recording the adventures of the snail in different locations. We also thought about the different emotions that she would have experienced along her journey and used a thesaurus to find more words with the same meaning.

 

In Maths we have been telling the time.

We have remembered to piece the clues together like a time detective.

  • Look at the long minute hand

Is it on the past or the to side of the clock?    past

How many minutes?    (30)      half

 

  • Look at the short hour hand

Which number has it gone past or to?    9

  • Add the clues together    Half past 9

 

We have learnt o clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to.

 

We have also moved on to using units of 5 minutes.

  • past
  • 20
  • 9
  • 20 past 9

 

In R.E this week we read the story of The Last Supper. We talked about the important words and phrases that Jesus used and how they are words that we hear at church every week. We looked at how this important story has been depicted in art work. The children responded by creating their own Last Supper drawing, applying the skills that they developed in our drawing topic last term.

The Last Supper by Leonardo Da Vinci

 

 

“This is my blood to take away sin. Drink from this, all of you.”

Matthew 26:20-29

 

Friday 8th March

 

This week in English we have written diary entries from the point of view of the snail from The Snail and The Whale. We thought about this style of writing and remembered to include:

· the date

· Dear Diary

· past tense verbs

· first person I

· information

· thoughts and feelings

 

In Maths this week we have continued our multiplication topic.

We have used the language factor and product and know that

Factor X factor = product

We have investigated the factors and worked out that multiplication is commutative

4X 2= 8 and 2X 4 = 8

 

In RE this week we have thought about Forgiveness, how it feels to be forgiven and how it feels when we forgive.

We read the story of Jesus entering Jerusalem on Palm Sunday and recreated the story with puppets.

Friday 1st March

 

In English we started our new Power of Reading book The Snail and The Whale by Julia Donaldson. We thought about where we would like to travel to if we had itchy feet like the snail in the book. We thought about how she was feeling as she embarked on her journey and wrote character descriptions about the snail based on all that we know about her so far.

 

In spelling and grammar we have continued to focus on Year 2 high frequency words and also looked at words that end in ‘tion’. See if you can spot any in your reading books.

 

In Maths this week we have started our new topic of Multiplication.

We know that multiplication is equal groups of.

We have drawn equal groups with jottings, have recorded using repeated addition and have created arrays using counters, jottings and even ourselves!

 

In R.E. we have started our new topic Desert to Garden. We have reflected on our Ash Wednesday service and why we chose our Lenten promises.

We have listened to Kyrie Eleison and learnt that it means Lord have mercy.

Friday 16th February

 

In English we wrote a story based on the Princess and the White Bear King.

 

In Maths this week we have been learning about subtracting a 2 digit number from a 2 digit number where the ones bridge 10.

We have followed these steps

34-26=

· Partition the 26

20+6

· Draw a number line.

· subtract the 10s

34-20=14

· subtract the 1s

14-4=10

10-2=8

 

This week’s Maths has brought together the skills of subtracting multiples of 10, subtracting 1s and using a numberline.

 

In R.E. we have completed the topic Galilee to Jerusalem.

We took part in an Ash Wednesday service and wrote Lenten Promises.

Friday 9th February

 

In English we predicted what we think might happen at the end of the story.

Most of us wished for a happy, fairy tale ending to the story but others decided that The Troll Queen would rule the kingdom! We also compared what we had predicted at the beginning of the book to what we predicted near to the end.

 

Our spelling rule this week soft c.

 

The rule is;

The c is soft if it is followed by a y, i or e

 

city   spaceman    circle   cyber

 

In Maths this week we have been learning about subtracting a 2 digit number from a 2 digit number where the ones don’t bridge 10.

We have followed these steps

34-21=

  • Partition the 21

20+1

  • Draw a number line.
  • subtract the 10s

34-20=14

  • subtract the 1s

14-1=13

 

This week’s maths has brought together the skills of subtracting multiples of 10, subtracting 1s and using a numberline.

 

In R.E. we have continued the topic Galilee to Jerusalem.

We read the parable of The lost sheep that explains that God loves and forgives us all.

“Heaven is filled with the angel’s songs of joy whenever one person comes back to God.”

Luke 15: 1-10

Friday 2nd February

 

In English we wrote a diary entry pretending that we were the princess on her journey to the glass mountain.

We included past tense verbs, information and thoughts and feelings and remembered to write in the first person using I.

 

Our spelling rule this week was compound words.

Compound words are words made when two words come together to make a completely different word.

 

butter+ fly=butterfly

 

stop+watch =stopwatch

 

In Maths this week we have been learning about adding two 2 digit numbers where the ones add up to more than 10

We have followed these steps

34+27=

  • Partition the 27

20+7

  • Draw a number line.
  • Add on the 10s

34+20=54

  • Make the next multiple of 10

54+6=60

  • Partition the ones

7 is made of 6 and 1

  • Add on the ones.

These are all skills the children have learnt and this week we have brought them all together to solve problems.

 

In R.E. we have continued the topic Galilee to Jerusalem.

We read the story of Noah’s Ark and thought about the symbolism of water, cleansing and forgiving.

Friday 26th January

 

In English we wrote sentences to justify who the princess should listen to and why.

 

The princess should listen to the bear because he might be lonely.

The princess should listen to her mother because the bear might be a troll.

 

Our spelling rule this week was looking at how contractions are formed.

 

A contraction is a shortened form of a group of words.

An apostrophe is used where the letters have been taken away.

 

he is------he’s

they are ------ they’re

would not ------ wouldn’t

 

In Maths this week we have been learning about adding two 2 digit numbers where the ones add up to less than ten.

We have remembered the strategies we have learnt for adding by following

  • Write the equation      24+23=
  • Circle the operation
  • Partition           24=20+4

                        23=20+3

  • Add the tens    20+20=40
  • Add the ones    4+3=7
  • Combine the tens and the ones     40+7=47

We applied this strategy to answer word problems.

In R.E. we have continued the topic Galilee to Jerusalem.

We read about Jesus calling his disciples  Mathew 10 1-23.

 

“These were the men who would spread God’s Good News.”

We wrote prayers to say sorry and ask God’s forgiveness for our sins.

Friday 19th January 

 

In English we thought about the princess, what she looks like and how she feels. We then used all our describing words to create a character description.

The children came up with some well thought out sentences including:

 

She has long, smooth hair..

She has beautiful eyes that shine like the stars.

She feels emotional and angry because she did not get the crown she really wanted.

 

Our spelling rule this week was to add the suffix ‘ly’ to change an adjective into and adverb

 

Quick + ly = quickly

Slow+ ly = slowly

 

We also applied the rule that if the adjective ends in a y you change the ‘y’ to an ‘i’ and add ‘ly’

happy  - happi - happily

crazy – crazi - crazily

 

 

In Maths this week we have been learning about polygons.

A polygon is a 2D shape with only straight sides that meet at a vertices.

 

The important vocabulary this week is

polygon

straight sides

vertices

We have looked at regular polygons and created our own irregular ones too.

Polygons we have named are;

Triangle, square, rectangle, quadrilateral, pentagon, hexagon and octagon

 

In R.E. we have continued the topic Galilee to Jerusalem.

We have listened to the story of The Temptation in the wilderness (Lk 4: 1-15)

We thought about good choices and bad choices and how Jesus made good choices even though He was tempted by the devil.

“You should not test The Lord your God. Now go away. I’m not going to do what you want. I’ve come here to do what God wants.” (Lk 4: 1-15)

 

We also began to recognise that the miracles of Jesus are signs that Jesus is the Son of God. We listened and responded to the story of Jesus curing the paralysed man.

Friday 12th January

 

In English we have started our new power of reading book, The Princess and the White bear King. We looked at artefacts and predicted what the story might be about, designed and created crowns fit for a princess and wrote a letters to the king explaining why he should choose their crown.

We included adjectives and conjunctions in our writing.

 

In Maths this week we have been learning to subtract multiples of 10 from a 2 digit number by applying our knowledge of bonds within 10

We have continued to remind ourselves that:

the tens change but the ones stay the same.

43 - 20=

We have used the following rules:

Partition the 43into tens and ones

43=40+3

Subtract the multiples of 10

40 - 20=

We know that 4-2=2 so we also know that 40-20=20 (4 tens - 2 tens = 2 tens)

Recombine (add the ones on)

20+3=23

 

In R.E. we have started our new topic Galilee to Jerusalem.

We have listened to the story of John the Baptist and looked at art work that depicts John baptising Jesus.

Jesus is baptised

Jesus went down into the water. When He came out, He was praying. Suddenly, its seemed as though the sky had split in two! God’s Holy Spirit had come. It looked like a dove as it hovered over Jesus. This showed all those watching that Jesus had the Holy Spirit in Him.

A great Voice spoke from the sky, “You are My Son. I have always loved You. You have always pleased Me.” It was the Voice of God. He was telling the people they should listen to Jesus. Luke 3:21-22

 

 

 

Friday 8th December

In English we have been learning about the rules of adding the suffix ly to change an adjective into an adverb.

quick + ly = quickly

soft  + ly = softly

We have thought about the very beginning of the story about Traction Man and have started to wonder about how the boy’s original Traction Man became broken through a parachute accident! Did he get tangled up in the clutches of Terrible Tree, was he chewed by the next door neighbour’s dog Nasty Gnasher or did he get captured by Ferocious Frog who lives in the depths of the garden pond?

 

In Maths this week we have been learning to add multiples of 10 to a 2 digit number by applying our knowledge of bonds within 10

We have continued to remind ourselves that:

the tens change but the ones stay the same.

23 +40=

We have used the following rules:

Partition the 23into tens and ones

23=20+3

Add the multiples of 10

20+40=

We know that 2+4= 6 so we also know that 20+40=60 (2 tens + 4 tens = 6 tens)

Recombine (add the ones on)

60+3=63

 

In R.E. we have learnt about The Visitation when Mary travels to see Elizabeth to share her Good News. We read the scripture Mary’s Song which recalls how she feels. Mary’s Song

Mary was so happy, she sang a song of praise to God.

“God is so good. My heart is full of joy,

I give thanks and praise to God,

For God has blessed me very specially.

I am poor and unimportant

Yet God has done great things for me.

Holy is God’s name.

God is so strong.

God’s love lasts for ever.

God looks after everyone.

God is with the poor and hungry.

God is always very close.

God never forgets anyone.”

(based on Luke1:46-55)

We have also thought about how Mary and Joseph would prepare for the arrival of their special baby, Jesus Christ.

Friday 1st December

In English we have been revising all the spelling rules for past tense verbs. We then included all our great past tense verbs when we wrote a letter from Scrubbing Brush to Traction Man.

 

In Maths this week we have been learning to add and subtract 10 from a 2 digit number.

We have learnt that when we add or subtract 10 the tens change but the ones stay the same.

14+10=24

24+10=34

34 +10=44

44+10=54 etc

 

67-10=57

57-10=47

47-10=37 etc

 

In R.E. We have read about the prophet Isaiah

Isaiah 9: 2-6

Once a long time ago, people felt as though they were living in the dark.

Then something happened.

It was as though a great light brightened up their lives and brought them joy.

A child has been born to us.

A son is given to us. And these are the names he has been given;

Strong friend

Powerful God

Ever-loving Father

Bringer of peace

 

We reflected on this scripture and thought about how it made us feel. We also listened and responded to the story of The Annunciation.

Friday 24th November 

In English we have been thinking about the way Traction Man feels in different parts of the story. We wrote letters pretending to be Traction Man, to Granny, to say thank you and to explain what he really thought the Christmas present she gave him.

 

In Maths this week we have started to add a single digit to a 2 digit number.

We have used the following check list.

  • Circle the operation
  • Draw a numberline
  • Make 10 (the next multiple of 10)
  • Partition
  • Add the second part

18+3=

 

We have also had great fun as it has been PIRATE MATHS WEEK.

We solved number problems, played pirate maths games, solved Pirate maths challenges and followed a set of instructions to make a pirate hat all on our own!

 

In R.E. We have started our new topic Preparing. We have written lists of the things we need to do to prepare for Christmas and have all made an Advent promise that we will strive to keep during Advent.

Friday 17th November

 

In English we have been looking at what makes a good diary entry.

We know that it needs:

  • the date
  • Dear Diary
  • past tense verbs
  • to be written in the first person    I
  • to include information
  • to include thoughts and feelings

We then wrote a diary entry pretending to be Traction Man.

 

This week we have also been looking at homophones, words that sound the same but have different spellings and different meanings

e.g. to   too   two

      there    their    they’re

 

In Maths this week we have continued to apply known facts to solve addition and subtraction equations.

If I know that 3 + 4 = 7

Then I know that 13 + 4 = 17

I can work out    23 +  [    ] = 27

or 27 = [        ] + 23

and  44 + [      ] = 47 and so on

 

This week was Inter Faith Week. We found out about Judaism and how Jewish families prepare for and celebrate Shabbat.

We know that Shabbat means      and He rested.

We wrote lists of all the things that are needed to get ready before the special meal.

 

 

Friday 10th November

 

This week in English we have carried on with our new Power of Reading Book Traction Man. We have been thinking about how Traction Man always manages to save the day! 

We have been looking at irregular past tense verbs. For example, run- ran, is- was. Next week we will be looking at homophones. 

In Maths we have thought about addition and subtraction. We have been identifying patterns. 

For example, 6 +2 = 8, 16 + 2 = 18, 26 + 2 = 28… What will come next? 

 

In Science we have been identifying how materials can be changed. We sorted materials into those that can be stretched and those that cannot.  

In PE we have enjoyed creating yoga flow sequences. 

Friday 3rd November 

This week in English we have started our new Power of Reading Book Traction Man. We have been predicting what we think is going to happen in the book, thought about a voiceover and learned about Proper Nouns. We have had great fun adding voice overs to things that are happening around the school.

 

This week’s spelling rules

We have been working on past tense verbs and have learnt the following rules;

Just add ed      play---played

If the root word has a short vowel sound, double the consonant and  add ed   hug---hugged

If the root word ends in e , take off the e and add ed

If the root word ends in y, change the y to an I and add ed  cry---cried

Next week we will be looking at irregular past tense verbs.

 

In Maths we have thought about subtraction as difference.

We have investigated consecutive numbers and found that they have a difference of 1.

we have investigated consecutive even numbers and found that they have a difference of 2.

We have investigated consecutive odd numbers and found that they have a difference of 2.

 

Our Signs and Symbols topic came to an end. We celebrated and went forth to spread the word with our candles decorated with the signs and symbols of baptism.

Friday 20th October

 

In Maths we have continued to subtract a single digit from a 2 digit number.

We have been successful by following these 3 steps;

  • Draw a number line
  • Make 10
  • Partition

12 - 4

12-2 =10

 

10 -2 =8

 

Friday 13th October

 

In English we have been writing our own poetry.

We went on a lovely Autumn walk around the school, collected autumn leaves and watched and videoed leaves falling from the trees.

We then thought about amazing adjectives and interesting verbs that we could use to describe them.

We then used all our ideas to create an Autumn leaf poem.

 

This week in Maths we have continued to add 2 single digit numbers using the ‘makes ten’ strategy but with the addition of an empty number line to help to see the process.

We have used the following check list to help us to be successful

• Write the equation

• Draw a number line

• Make ten

• Partition the second number

• Add the second part on

 

7+5=

 

 

Although this seems a rather long process it is a skill that will really help them when working with bigger numbers and harder maths problems.

 

Key vocabulary;

makes ten, addition, and, plus, together

 

In RE we have continued to look at the rites of Baptism and the importance of the symbols reflecting Baptism. This week’s sign was the door to the church that opens and welcomes the baby into God’s family.

Friday 6th October

 

In English this week we have been writing poems.

We read and performed a poem about hedgehogs and then wrote a nonsense poem about a funny thing that we might see on the way to school.

On the way to school I saw a dinosaur.

A spotty dinosaur.

A spotty, tiny dinosaur.

A spotty, tiny, laughing dinosaur …

We tried to include interesting adjectives and apply the spelling rules that we have been learning about adding suffixes.

 

This week in Maths we have been adding 2 single digit numbers using the ‘makes ten’ strategy.

7+5=

We know that 7 needs 3 more to make 10.

5 is made of 3 and 2

 

 

So 7+3=10

     10+2 =12

We are teaching the children to use calculation strategies rather than just counting on.

Although this seems a rather long process it is a skill that will really help them when working with bigger numbers and harder maths problems.

Key vocabulary;

makes ten, addition, add, plus, together

 

In RE we have continued to look at the rites of Baptism and the importance of the symbols reflecting Baptism. We went on a walk looking for signs and symbols that are important to our school.

 

We have started our new History topic on Black History Month with a particular focus on Martin Luther King. BBC bitesize has some good information, a puzzle to make and a quiz to test their knowledge.

Who was Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.? - BBC Bitesize

Friday 29th September 

 

In English this week we have been writing our own version of Max’s first crossing with the lollipop lady.

We have thought about using great descriptive language, interesting verbs and conjunctions to extend our sentences.

 

This week in Maths we have been comparing numbers using the inequality and the equals signs. 

We have looked at the number of tens as a guide as to which is the greatest number and explain this using the correct mathematical vocabulary.

EG

23> 17

23 is greater than 17 because 23 has two tens and 17 only has one.

We also used our knowledge of comparative numbers to reason where numbers up to 99 would go on an empty number line.

EG 

I know that 50 goes half way between 0 and 100.

I know that 49 goes next to 50 because 49 is one less than 50.

 

In RE this week we were inspired by St Paul’s letters and wrote a letter in the same style explaining why God had created us and how special we are.

We ended our Beginnings topic and planned our celebration.

 God Loved us and chose us before the world was made to be holy. Because he loved us, God decided to make us his own children

Based on Ephisians 1: 4-5

Friday 22nd September

 

In English this week we have been using descriptive language to describe how Max is feeling. We have also looked at suffix endings for ing.

 

This week in maths we have continued to work on place value. We have partitioned numbers into tens and ones using a part part whole model and a bar model. We said or stem sentences to help us create an addition number sentence. We then investigated that you can add two numbers in any order.

10+7=17

and

7+10=17

This is called  commutativity.

We thought about writing addition number sentences with the whole at the front

17=10+7

17=7+10

 

In RE this week we have read  psalms and given thanks to God for all of the things he has created in our world. We sang Laudate Si to remind us that we are taking care of all of the wonderful plants and creatures.

Friday 15th September

 

In English this week we have continued to read The Hodgeheg by Dick king Smith. We used adjectives to describe the park and everything that Max found in it. We acted out Max trying to cross the road and wrote sentences about how he felt and following his accident we had great fun writing mixed up sentences.

 

This week in Maths we have continued to work on place value. We have partitioned numbers into tens and ones using a part part whole model.

We then said

My whole is 17

One part is 10

One part is 7

Together I have 17.

We then used this to create addition equations.

10+7=17

We repeated all the above using numbers to 30.

 

In RE this week we have read  Psalm 139 we hear how God created us and was there at our very beginning in life.

We responded to the psalm  with You loved me and you know me.

We also wrote our own prayers to say when we start each new day.

Friday 8th September

In English this week we have been learning about the Hodgeheg. We thought about what we already knew about hedgehogs and what we would like to find out. We also looked at suffix rules for adding ‘s’. For example, dog- dogs, cat- cats. Our homework this week is reading a Bug Club book.

 

This week in Maths we have been working on place value. We have partitioned numbers into tens and ones using a part part whole model

 

                                                                    

 

We then said

My whole is 17

One part is 10

One part is 7

Together I have 17.

We repeated this for all teen numbers and some in the twenties too.

 

In RE this week we have been thinking about times where we have started something new and how it made us felt.
