Welcome to Year 2

Welcome to our class page.

Take a look at what we have been very busy doing in Year 2.

This half term our Learning Challenge is:

Why can't Meerkats live in the Arctic?

We have been learning about the seven continents and five oceans of the world. The children really enjoy learning through song and dance to the very popular continents song!


The book we have started to explore is 'The Day the Crayons Quit' by Drew Daywalt. The book is based on a story about poor Duncan who just wants to colour. But when he opens his box of crayons, he finds only letters, all saying the same thing: We quit! Beige is tired of playing second fiddle to Brown. Blue needs a break from coloring all that water, while Pink just wants to be used! We are going to be writing letters from other points of view, learn about different sentence types and continue to work hard on our spellings to improve our writing. 


We have started looking at addition and subtraction. We have been learning how to use a 100 square to count forwards and backwards in tens and ones. We will continue with addition and subtraction, learning different methods we can use.
