Year 2 Bulletin w/c 2nd Dec
In Literacy this week, the children will continue with the theme of the Great Fire of London and use this to start learning about poems. The children will explore the features in poems, including:
Similes e.g bright as the sun
Alliteration e.g smoke swirling
The children will use their understanding of adjectives and verbs to construct a poem all about fire. The children will also present their poem as a shape poem. Changing their voices and using expression the children will practise performing their poem to the class.
In Maths this week, the children will continue to learn about multiplication and apply their understanding of arrays to help solve multiplication calculations. Whilst exploring arrays the children will begin to understand that multiplication is commutative.
For example
5 x 2 is the same as 2 x 5
2 x 8 is the same as 8 x 2
The children will explore the above calculations using arrays so that they can see that whichever calculation they do, they would still end up with the same answer.
The children will also be introduced and shown how to solve multiplication word problems.
For example
There are 5 bags of apple and each bag contains 2 apples. How many apples are there?
The children can solve this as
5×2 or 2×5
The children will need to follow the process of reading the question careful, underlining the key words and numbers and then drawing their method pictorially and writing the calculation. As shown in the above example, the children will be encouraged to write both multiplication calculations to show the commutativity in multiplication.
The children will excited to spend the week practising for their class Great Fire of London performance which will take place the week beginning Sunday 9th December.
The children will be learning their script, songs and practise acting as the role they’re given and to read their lines using expression and gestures.
Have a go at reading your lines to someone at home.
Can you remember your lines and read them by heart?
