Year 2

Year 2 RM Learning Log 

13th September 2019

This week we have started our new literacy unit based around the novel: Once Upon an Ordinary School Day.  The children have been learning how to write complex sentences that use a noun, capital letter, full stop and a connective.  We can't wait to write our own story influenced by the novel.

We have been working on place value, partitioning and taking away in maths.  Some of us have been working with numbers in the 100s, very impressive!

We have also been working on several My Time activities, focussing on how to present our work with the date, L.S and evaluating, not just our own work but our peers too.

Perhaps most exciting, has been the preparation for 'Undy Sweet Treats,' our transactional role play.  The children have created all the decorations and all the sweets to sell in the shop Monday-Friday until 3:15.  However, the children were very keen to sell real sweets too.  After consultation with Mrs. Willis and reviewing our Healthy Schools Policy we have decided that the occasional treat, as part of a healthy diet, is okay.  As such, the children have planned and ordered what is needed, budgeted using Sheets and marketed their sweet shop.  We will be selling pick 'n' mix and treats that the children make as part of our 'Let's Bake' provision.  We will be asking for donations for a bag of sweets/treats and will be based in the Infant Yard on each Friday after school (3:20-3:40).   We will be manning the school so please do not feel obliged to stay, however, if your child would like to help sell and you do not mind staying after school, you are, of course, welcome.  

Have a wonderful weekend.

These are some things you could do any time at home to help you learn....

Read your school book and anything else which interests you regularly!

Practise writing... You could write shopping lists, invitations, letters or even a diary so you can remember all the fun things you do on the weekends!

Practise spelling any words you find tricky and also red words...

Practice writing your numbers, counting, adding and subtracting. We will be checking these each week in our Beat That Test on a Thursday morning. Please help your child learn them so they can quickly recall the answer.
