September 2020 in Year 2

This month we have started our topic on the Great Fire of London, children learnt about the events that led up to the fire and how they put the fire out. Children sequenced the events and wrote about what happened on each day.

In English we have been reading the book ‘Journey’ by Aaron Becker. We explored the emotion of the story and explored the idea that our facial expressions are important in showing how we feel. We created our own mood monsters thinking about what their face might be doing to show the emotion.

We have also sequenced the story and thought about how she felt at different times of the story.

In Computing we have been learning how to be creative, we used a program online to create our own pictures. We explored how to use different effects and tools.

In Science we have been exploring materials, we look at the materials that objects were made out of and thought about why they used that material.

In maths we have been looking at numbers and the different ways to regroup them as well as compare them.
