This week we have continued to look at the Wizard of Oz and have been writing character descriptions in English. We are trying to encourage the children to start their sentences in different ways.
We have had a measuring week in maths and have explored length, capacity and weight. The children have been reading scales to find how long something is, how much liquid is in a container and how many grams/kilograms different objects weigh.
In our topic work we have looked at how we can protect our planet.
After the Easter holiday…
We will be looking at the book Meerkat Mail and will be writing non-chronological reports about meerkats.
Please continue to hear your child read regularly and practise spelling the words that are in the front of their reading journal.
We have sent a maths activity home today, which reinforces the year 2 maths curriculum and is what we have taught this term. If you feel that some of the calculations are too tricky for your child then please feel free to change them!
As we are learning about meerkats after Easter we would like the children, if possible, to find out some interesting facts about them. We will then share these together during the first week back.
We hope you all have a lovely break.
