Year 2 Bulletin

For the week commencing Sunday, 14th October


In Literacy this week the children will begin a new unit of learning which is ‘Writing for Different Purposes’. We will be focusing on instruction writing, looking at ordering and following instructions. The children will be applying important elements to instruction writing. This includes using time conjunctions, bossy verbs and adverbs.

  • Do you know what these are?
  • At home, can you make a list of verbs and adverbs?

We will also be reviewing the importance of writing a recount. Following our trip to Bahrain Museum, the children will independently write a recount all about their trip, remembering to write in the past tense and using the correct punctuation.

A useful link to help your child with reading at home.


Maths this week will focus on addition. We will begin by adding 2 digit and 1 digit numbers (not crossing tens). This will involve partitioning the numbers into  FAMILIES of TENS and ONES.

For example

12 + 6 =

14.10.18 1

So tens on one side and ones on the other

14.10.18 2

So this will be written as

10 + 6 + 2 = 18

We will then move onto adding 2 digit and 1 digit numbers (crossing the tens). However, this time this will involve learning a new method. Using our knowledge of place value, the children will use the number 10 as our special number to exchange the ONES to TENS.

For example

18 + 6 =

14.10.18 3

The children will be looking at adding two 2 digit numbers. Again we will be using our knowledge of place value to exchange ONES for TENS when adding numbers.

Have fun on these websites with interactive and challenging maths games.


The children will be very excited this week as we will be going on our very first year 2 trip to  Bahrain Museum. We will be looking at Bahrain ‘Then and Now’, focussing on how Bahrain has changed due to land reclamation. We will be discussing areas which did not exist 50 years ago. For example City Centre, Juffair and Amwaj.

The children will also enjoy looking at traditional Bahraini jobs. This will include a pearl diver, weaver, fisherman, baker and many more. We will look at what tools these jobs need and how easy or hard it is to do and why it is a good job to have.


Our Job fair begins on Wednesday, 24th October at 8:00am. Please contact your child’s teacher if you would like to come in and tell the children all about your job.
