Welcome to Year 2!
Class teachers: Ms Cartmill and Miss Driver
Please see below for key information and documents (newsletters, expectations of year 2 children, topic overviews).
We are currently learning how to write postcards which the children are really excited about.
We are continuing to use:
- Writing on the line
- Using finger spaces
- Using SMALL full stops
- Using top to bottom capitals
- Starting each letter on the line (using lead in lines)
- Using full stops at the end of each complete sentence
- Using a capital letter at the beginning of every sentence
To help your child start/practise using lead in lines, please see the sheet attached below.
We are currently learning about fractions.
We are focusing on finding and representing:
- 1/2, 1/3, 1/4
- 2/4, 3/4
Understanding the equivalence of 1/2 and 2/4
We are doing this by looking at shapes, logos, objects, amounts of things and numbers.
What is 1/2 of 8? If I had 1/4 of 24 apples, how many would I have?
Would you rather have 1/3 of £32 or 1/4 of £36?
