September 2017 in Year 2

What a busy month we have had in Year 2!

In maths we started the year with a week of inspirational maths, focusing on a positive attitude to our learning. Then have been looking at place value and finding 1 more, 1 less, 10 more and 10 less. We have been thinking about what each digit means in 2 digit numbers and finding equivalent and non-equivalent numbers.

In English we really enjoyed writing letters after we had read The Day the Crayons Quit. We have also looked at how to write a non-fiction text and written information books about castles.

In Science we have been exploring different properties of materials and learning about absorbent and waterproof materials.

In DT we designed and made bunting for a castle, thinking about how we can join materials. We are really looking forward to our castle day next month.
