Year 2 Bulletin

For week commencing Sunday, 16th September

literacy

What is an information text?

This week in Literacy, the children will be exploring different information texts. They will spend time identifying the features of an information text and to then try and recreate an information text, making sure the features are put in the right place.

  • Do you know what a caption is?
  • What is a fact box?
  • What is a sub-heading?
  • Do you have an information text at home?

maths

This week in Maths the children will continue to partition numbers using a part-whole model. They will explore different ways of partitioning, for example, 58 is made up of 5 tens and 8 ones or 4 tens and 18 ones, or 2 tens and 38 ones.

Children will end the week by using the addition sign to show partitioning of numbers. For example, partition 24, 2 tens and 4 ones can be written as 20 + 4 = 24
