Year 2's busy time of learning

Date: 23rd Jan 2017 @ 2:39pm

We are always busy in Year 2 and we would like to show you some of the exciting learning that has been taking place.

We have been using laptops to make graphs from tally charts that we made when we collected information. We have been making a human pictogram to show results in our science work about the weather and have even been outside and used chalk to make our own pictograms to show all the different things we found on the playground.

For our spelling work, we have been trying different spelling games and activities which have been really useful in helping us to learn different ways of how to spell words. This week we have used magnetic letters to build grotty words that we cannot sound out.

Reading Challenges - Everyone in Year 2 has a Reading Challenge to try and read every night after school and colour in their chart. Each morning they get a sticker and at the end of the challenge there will be prizes, awards and certificates for our children who are reading at home and putting in the extra effort. So far, everyone has made a great start!

Keep watching to see what other exciting things we are doing in Year 2.
