October 2019

We had a fantastic trip to a local allotment and found out how plants need water, light and a suitable temperature to grow and stay healthy.  We were really amazed at the height of the sweetcorn!

We also visited the Wetland Centre to discover the invertebrates that live in land micro habitats. 

Following this trip, we designed and built bug hotels on our DT Day and made bird pud to hang in the orchard and in the Rainbow Garden.

We ended this half term with Poetry Week and enjoyed our poetry workshop and reading and reciting different poems.  We are all feeling very proud of our ‘Animal Voices’ poems which we wrote this week in class.

In maths we have been recapping how many tens and how many ones are in a number.  We have used this to help us with our addition and subtraction – we had fun practising empty number lines outside using skipping ropes and chalk!

Thank you again for all your support at home.  It was great to speak to so many of you at Parents Consultations about how your child has settled into Year 2.  Also thank you for your generous donations on ‘Wear It Pink’ day and items for the Kingston Foodbank which were collected for our Harvest Assembly. 

Our topic next half term is The Great Fire of London.  Please see the Y2 Newsletter to find out what your child will be learning and also to take a note of the important dates.

We hope you all have a lovely half term holiday.
