Welcome to Y2 Oak!
Your teacher is Mrs Edwards and your teaching assistant is Mr Thind.
Our P.E. days are Wednesdays and Fridays.
Please bring your P.E. kit to school and take out any earrings either before school or before the lesson if you can manage it by yourself.
This half term we will be doing gymnastics and dance as well as playing some fun teamwork games that get our heart rates up.
Our focus for learning this half term is Into the Woods.
We have been reading lots of different versions of the story Little Red Riding Hood and practised describing the characters and settings.
Over the next couple of weeks we will have a go at writing our own version of Little Red Riding Hood, with vivid characters and exciting setting descriptions.
Will your story be about a sweet, kind girl and her walk through the dark, gloomy forest?
Or will your character be a boy or an animal? Will they zoom through the noisy forest on a scooter and arrive in time to save Grandma? Will the wolf be mean and fierce, or is he a kind, gentle creature in your own traditional tale? Mrs Edwards is looking forward to reading your stories to find out!
In maths we are looking at place value, addition and subtraction.
We have looked at numbers to 100 and practised ordering them and building them with our maths apparatus. We are getting really good at knowing how many tens and ones are in a 2-digit number.
Over the next few weeks we will be practising using this knowledge to add and subtract some big numbers. Well done mathematicians of Team Oaks!
In our Learning Journey we have looked at how humans change and grow as we get older, and compared this to other animals.
We have our own class caterpillars and they're getting very big! Just like the Very Hungry Caterpillar they have been eating and eating and will soon become chrysalides (creatures inside a chrysalis) and begin their transformation. This process is known as metamorphasis, and in Team Oaks we have been using our fabulous science skills to predict when the changes will happen. Watch this space for some pictures of our chrysalides very soon!
