Next week in topic we’ll be writing instructions on how to bake bread from 1666 and we’ll be comparing clothing that they used to wear back in the 17th century to modern clothes.
Next week in maths we’ll be comparting numbers from 0-100 and using the greater than, less than symbols in our comparisons. We will be discussing why 13 is less than 31 and we’ll be linking this to our learning from this week on place value.
This week in topic we have been learning about The Great Fire of London. We have learned the key dates and facts; and we’ve written them. Moreover, we made bread using a recipe from 1666, it was so much fun! We hope you enjoy tasting it at home!
This week in maths we have consolidated our knowledge on place value and what each digit within a number represents. We have also practised our number bonds to 10 and began looking at partitioning numbers. Make sure you keep practising at home.
This week we are beginning our topic ‘Fire Fire’ where we will learn about The Great Fire Of London. We are going to make bread using a recipe that is very similar to how they used to make bread in 1666. In Maths we are revising our place value knowledge and working with numbers up to 100.
The children settled into Year 2 last week very well. We spent the first week getting to know our new classrooms and adults and sharing our holiday news. We spent a lot of time talking about friendships, how to solve problems and worries and developing relationships with each other.
We hope you have all had a lovely summer. We are looking forward to seeing the children back at school this week.
