Year 2 Bulletin

For the week commencing Sunday, 21st October


The children will continue to learn about following and writing instructions and what the ‘Steps to Success’ for writing good instructions are.

This includes

  • time conjunctions e.g. first, next, after that
  • verbs e.g. put, mix, stir, get
  • adverbs e.g. quickly, carefully, sensibly
  • correct order
  • present tense

Each class will make hummus. They’ll discuss what ingredients are needed, what equipment will be used and the exact steps needs to make it. The children will then work in groups to create their instructions for how to make hummus, making sure they are following the ‘Steps to Success’. This will lead into them presenting their instructions as a cooking show, to the rest of their class.


The children will begin to add 2 two-digit numbers, crossing the tens. For example 64 + 17. Again this will involve partitioning the numbers into FAMILIES of TENS and ONES. The children will use the number 10 as our special number to exchange the ONES to TENS.

We will then move onto subtraction. This will involve the inverse of addition. The children will now need to exchange the TENS into ONES so that they can subtract numbers. For example 22-7=

Children will use the 10 as our special number by subtracting 2 to make 20 and then take away 5 to get to their answer.

This can also be shown on a blank number line as

This week the children are in for a surprise with a full day of topic all about jobs. The children will get to hear about different jobs from parents who have kindly volunteered their time to come and speak about their job.

The children will also enjoy a carousel of activities all about different jobs. At the end of the day the children will write a job application saying which job they like and why they think they would be best suited for that position.

As part of the day the children are welcome to come to school dressed in their smart clothes ready for a job interview.
