Recommended Reading List
Please find below, a recommended reading list for year 2. Please send a note in, if you would like a particular book to be taken out from the library that week. Hope you enjoy reading these books!
In Maths we have been looking at numbers’ lines up to 100. We drew our own number lines and put the increments in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. Our partner had to identify the number that we had drawn the arrow to. We used 100cm rulers to help us identify the numbers.
We did an investigation to check which different textures of materials would not absorbed the water, if it had absorbed water. We then turned the material around and coloured a patch of material with a crayon to see if it would absorb.
In Literacy, we have been reading the story of the Little Red Reading Hood. We went to our local area park, and pretended we were in the woodlands. We used the Fantastics, to explore the environment through the various lenses. We took pictures to remember what the woodlands looked like, and created a word bank in the park using alliteration.
In RE, we are learning about the Genesis Story, we read the story from the Bible, and had to retell the 7 days of the world being created. We pretended to be the different parts of the things that God created over the seven days in the Genesis Part 2 story. This helped us learn the order of how the world was created over the 7 days.
