This week in Year 2…
There be dragons’ in Year Two this week as we have started a new English learning journey on fantasy stories. We are looking at the books ‘Dragon Machine’ by Helen Ward and ‘George and the Dragon‘ by George Wormwell.
We have been looking back in history to the time of the Gunpowder plot, creating firework artwork and making sure everyone keeps safe for Bonfire night this week. We have also started learning about The Great Fire of London, finding out what the children want to know about this key moment in British history and starting our investigation into what happened in 1666. The children have also been learning the ‘London’s Burning’ rhyme in music.
In Maths, we have started looking at multiplication and division. It would really help your children if you practise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s with them at home, both forwards and backwards and from any number. We’ve kick-started the half term with lots of new and exciting learning!
