Year 2 have had a brilliant couple of weeks. The children have been working very hard on their reading skills and it has been a pleasure for us to see them improving so much.
As the final week of the half term has arrived, the children have been completing their newest writing unit – persuasive postcards. We have used the book, Meerkat Mail, as an inspiration for this unit and the children have impressed us greatly with their creativity. This week, the children have written their own postcard persuading the reader to visit Bloxwich Academy.
Mrs Watkins’ maths group have been learning all about fractions in their mathematics, Miss Azad’s maths group have been finishing off their place value to 100 unit and Mrs Gandhi’s maths group have been looking at their addition and subtraction unit. Well done to all the children for their effort and hard work this week.
We have been coming to the end of a couple foundation subject units and have been having lots of fun being creative with their final projects. In R.E., we have been learning about Losar (a New Year’s tradition for Tibetan Buddhists). We have completed this project this week by having our own, small New Year’s class party and working together to create our own cham dance. The children and teachers really enjoyed this! The children created flower sculptures at the end of their Art project, using paper plates and felt tips to mimic the sculptural designs of Yayoi Kusama.
Well done on yet another fantastic half term, Year 2! Have a safe and happy Easter holidays. We look forward to welcoming you back to school next term!
