Year 2

Week Beginning 12.3.18



This week in RE we started our new topic : Opportunities

This topic leads us through Lent and into Holy Week and Easter.

The prayer tables have been dressed in "purple" to signify that we hare in the season on Lent.

Children have been talking about creating opportunities during Lent to do something good. 

In Year 2, we have designed and created eco-gardens. The children recycled plastic bottles and filled them with soil. They then planted seeds. We are hopeful that these will grow into vegetables. The children have enjoyed making them and wish to keep them but we will be selling these for £1 and donating the money to CAFOD.


Task: Talk about Ash Wednesday and the importance of Lent. Explain that during this time we GIVE, HELP and PRAY.

Read together the story of Palm Sunday.


English: Grammar and Newspaper reports

This week we learned about the Possessive Apostrophe. Children understand how and when to use this new punctuation and are being encouraged to apply this into their writing.


In Year 2 it is also important to understand the use of an apostrophe in CONTRACTIONS.


I'm= I am

You'll= You will

She'll= she will

won't= will not

They'll= They will


TASK: Complete the double sided sheet on the sheet ( No need for homework books)




In Maths we have been looking at statistics, by collecting data and creating bar charts using the information. 

Children then answered questions about their chart.

Next week we will be looking more at pictograms and tally charts.


Finding the DIFFERENCE between two amounts is tricky.

This involves SUBTRACTING the smaller number from the bigger number. 


TASK: Complete Maths Reasoning sheet.
