Year 2 Week 38 2012

We have been very busy this week in Year 2!
In Literacy, we have been working hard to describe characters using lots of talk for writing.  We have thought about using interesting adjectives to describe appearance and personality. We have also been extending our sentences using connectives (and, but, because, so).
In Maths, we have been talking about numbers using the vocabulary more than, less than, greater than and equals. We have been taking great care forming numbers and have been recording our work using +, -, =.
We continued our topic work this week by looking at maps and aerial photographs of camp and the local area.  The children thoroughly enjoyed studying the maps and were able to identify lots of different places.
Reminders: Please remember to sign your child’s journal when you hear them read.  2C have PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 2N now have PE on Thursdays and Fridays.  Please ensure your child has their full PE kit in school.
Homework: We have added Maths homework to your child’s book.  We have also sent home spelling logs today.  Children are to practise each spelling by looking at the word, saying it, covering it over using their booklet, writing it on the paper opposite and then by checking it (Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check). Please practise these as often as possible and send them into school daily so that new words can be added when necessary.
