This week in Year 2
Our learning is focused around The Great Fire of London this half-term. We have been writing poetry based on the poem ‘Crackle! Spit!’ The poem focuses on Bonfire Night. We have also been learning about different features of poetry; adjectives, onomatopoeia, similes, and rhyming words. Challenge your children to shout some examples of onomatopoeia! In Maths, we have been recapping and building upon our adding and subtracting skills, using lots of different tools and methods to calculate. The children really enjoyed building paper bridges last week in Science as part of our Properties of Materials unit.
We observed Remembrance Day, learning about why we wear poppies and mixed warm colours to create a sunset remembrance painting. Photographed is Tate C, Tate T, Lily- Rose, Elexi and Phoebe’s masterpieces.
