October 2021 in Year 2

In English this month, we have been exploring poetry. We looked at lots of list poems and created our own based on different characters. We also enjoyed following a session with the poet Simon Mole about our dream day.

In Maths, we have been exploring place value. We found the amount of tens and ones in numbers and have begun to look at addition and subtraction to 20. We are looking forward to exploring more addition and subtraction next half term.

In Topic, we have finished exploring castles by looking at the people who worked there. We then looked at houses through history and plotted them on a timeline.

We really enjoyed our science topic of materials and experimented with different materials, finding out if they float or sink.

We have also finished the month with a fun art week, exploring the work on Monet and Van Gogh. We used colour mixing and mark making to recreate some of their famous pieces of work.

We are really looking forward to next half term, learning our play lines and exploring our acting skills.
