Welcome to the Year 2 page
Week 1 -
- We have looked at Paddington Bears suitcase, we wrote a list of what could be inside. We also designed a MISSING POSTER for Paddington.
- Place value, partitioning 2 digit numbers into tens and ones. We used diennes, part, part, whole model, ten frames and straws.
Week 2 -
- This week we learnt about Spectacled Bears. We read facts, sorted the information into 5 headings and wrote a fact sheet. The headings were Diet, Appearance, Habitat, Reproduction and Behaviour.
- Place value, creating an addition number sentence e.g. 67 = 60 + 7 85 = 80 + 5 and comparing two numbers using the more than/less than symbol.
Week 3 -
- This week we completed a cold write, which involved writing the beginning of a story The Three Little Pigs. We found a smashed scone with cream and jam all over the place & a story about Paddington. We acted out the story of Paddington with props and completed some hot seating designing questions we would ask the characters.
- We ordered 2 digit numbers looking at the tens and then the ones. We counted in 2's, 5's, 10's and 3's. We used a 100 square and worked out numbers that were 2 less and 2 more, 10 less and 10 more.
Week 4 -
- This week we had to learn the story that we were left. We were given symbols to show the key points of the story and as a class we had to come up with actions to match them e.g. hands on hips for Mrs Brown
- We looked at fact families in Maths this week e.g. 3 + 4 = 7
4 + 3 = 7
7 - 3 = 4
7 - 4 = 3
We also compared number sentences using the more than and less than symbol.
3 + 4 = 2 + 5
5 + 2 more than 3 +3
Week 5 -
- This week we had to change the main parts of the Paddington story like Paddington, Mr & Mrs Brown, the station, Paddington's hat etc. We then had to write the beginning of the story with all our changes.
- We looked at adding and subtracting 1-digit and 2-digit numbers, just looking at the ones then the tens.
Week 6 -
- This week we have looked at alliteration, rhyming words and shape poems. All the children have written a poem about a London landmark to enter a competition. The poems were acrostic.
- We looked at adding a 2-digit number to a 1-digit number when you have to carry the ones into the tens column. T O
