Year Two - Miss Loftus

Welcome to 2SL


A very warm welcome back and a Happy New Year to you all! We hope you have all had a great holiday. The children have settled back in and it’s already been a fantastic start to 2017 with lots of brilliant work produced already! We have got lots of exciting things planned this half term. This is our class page where you can find out about all of the fantastic and wonderful things we are doing in 2SL. It will be updated regularly with work and photographs so do come back and visit. 



The Odd Egg

We came back after the holidays to find an odd egg in the playground! Where has it come from? What might be inside?!

We enjoyed writing about our eggs and the creature growing inside! We sent a newsletter home to parents to tell them all about our exciting week! There might be more eggs so keep a look out! :)

In writing we are learning:

- to form all letters correctly

- to use more punctuation e.g. exclamation marks, question marks and commas in lists of words

- to continue to vary the connectives we use to extend sentences and develop ideas

- to use adjectives and nouns to describe in more detail.

- to spell Year 2 common exception words correctly

We will be writing stories, character descriptions, letters, instructions, reports and recounts!



In maths we are learning:

- to know and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 tables

- to understand the place value of numbers including tens and units

-to measure the capacity of containers and use scales

-to name and describe 2D and 3D shapes, how they relate together and to find them in our environment

-to solve problems involving money including giving change


In reading we are learning:

- to continue to use different strategies to read words

- to describe features of non-fiction texts e.g. contents page, titles, and compare these to fiction texts

- to retell stories and explain why things have happened

- to make predictions about what they think will happen as well as explain how characters may be feeling and why

- to answer questions and find evidence in the text to support their answers


Books we are reading in class:

- The Odd Egg

- George’s Marvellous Medicine

- The Dragon Snatcher

-The Egg

- Again

-From Egg to Chicken

-I Want my Hat Back

We will be beginning our new topics in History, Geography and Science. 

In History we are starting our topic, 'The Great Fire of London.' I think it is something the children are all going to find interesting and enjoy learning about. 

Parents are welcome to come and visit our classroom to take a look at the super topic work that will be displayed as we begin to get creative and inspired in our learning.
