Year 2 Bulletin

For the week commencing Sunday, 21st October


literacy

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.


maths

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

Year 2 Bulletin w/c 14th Oct

Year 2 Bulletin

For the week commencing Sunday, 14th October


literacy

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.

https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/


maths

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.

topic

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.


reminders

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.

Year 2 Bulletin

Week commencing Sunday, 7th October


literacy

This week in Literacy the children will be applying everything they have learned over the past few weeks to write their best character description of one of the characters in the story Harry and the Dinosaurs go to school.

Success.pngAs a class the children will attempt to write the Steps to Success for a good character description.

  • What are adjectives?
  • What joining conjunctions can we use to help us extend our sentences?
  • What punctuation must we always have in our writing?

These are a few things the children need to think about when writing their character description. The children will end the week by assessing their final piece of writing against the Steps to Success.


maths

In Maths this week, the children will continue to look at Addition and Subtraction. They will begin by looking at 1 more and 1 less than a number and then challenging them to adding and subtracting the numbers 2/3/4.

The children will also be looking at number bonds to 100 in tens.

For example:

20+80=100

40+60=100

This will nicely lead onto finding 10 more and 10 less than a number

For example:

10 more than 23 = 33

10 less than 46 = 36

Can you see what changes in the number and what stays the same?

Have fun on this website with interactive and challenging Maths games.

topic

In Topic this week the children will enjoy making their own clay thumb pinch pot for a tealight candle. Looking at shapes and lines, they will design the pattern they would like for their pot. The children will then make their pot using the thumb pinch technique and using clay tools they will create their pattern onto their pot. Once their pot is dried they will paint their pot in the colours of their choice. Finally, the children will evaluate their pot by answering the following questions.

  • What do you like about your pot?
  • Does your clay pot fit a tealight candle?
  • Does your clay pot look like your design?
  • How could you make it better?

reminders

To pay, sign and return the permission slip for the Bahrain Museum trip to the class teacher.

The next spelling test will take place on the week of the 21st October.

Year 2 Bulletin

For week commencing Sunday, 30th September

literacy

In Literacy the children will continue to describe Harry from the story Harry and the Dinosaurs go to School. This time they will use all the interesting adjectives about Harry’s appearance and personality, which they generated last week to write a character description of Harry.

Can you remember to put a capital letter at the start of a new sentence and full stop at the end of the sentence?

The children will also be using joining conjunctions to join two sentences together. Can you use the word AND and BECAUSE in a sentence?


maths

This week in Maths, we will begin to look at Addition and Subtraction as related facts. We will be using the part-whole model to demonstrate the relationship between the two operations and how they are inverse and part of the same family.

maths w1

For example

20 + 3 = 23   &   23 – 3 = 20

We will continue to look at the greater than >, less than < and same as = signs, however, this time the children will compare number sentences.

For example

6 + 4    ?    6 + 5

should be

6 + 4    <    6 + 5

The children will also begin to understand how calculations with similar digits are related.

For example

If 2 + 5 = 7  then  20 + 50 = 70


topic

This week, Topic is all about children’s favourite thing- TOYS. We will be looking at toys from the past and comparing them to the toys the children play with today. We will look at playground games and the traditional games played in Bahrain, including Sabah, Sikaina and Khabsa. The children will use the questionnaire completed at home by an older relative to discuss what game/toys they used to play.

If you have an old toy at home, why not bring in it to school and share it with your class.

The children will end the week by creating their own new playground game. They will need to make a set of rules for the game, which they will test and play with other children in the playground.
