Year 2 Weekly Update – 01/10/21

Dear parents,
This week in Literacy the children have been learning to retell the story of the Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch both orally and in writing. They have also been learning about our key reading skills – prediction, inference, retrieval, vocabulary and sequencing and trying to apply these skills when looking at the Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch.
In Maths the children have been learning how to use a place value chart and also a part-whole model to separate a 2-digit number into tens and ones. The children have been learning how to create an addition sum from this eg 90 + 1 = 91. They have also been learning how to partition a 2-digit number in alternative ways eg 80 + 11 = 91.
In R.E the children have been reading and retelling the story of Abraham and Sarah.
Home Learning – For home learning please help your child to learn the following words:
They will be tested next Wednesday. Please also complete the Maths activity, which has been set for your child on Purple Mash
Please make sure to listen to your child read every day and sign their reading record.
Thank you for your support.
Best wishes,
Miss Fielden and Mrs. Whyatt
