Year 2 News

Welcome back! We hope you have all had a fantastic summer holiday. We were really excited to see all of the children this week looking smart in their new uniforms with big smiles on their faces ready to start the new term. We have had a great few days beginning our learning and having fun in our new class. It has been lovely hearing all about the children’s holidays and we look forward to getting to know them and their families more over the next few weeks.

Congratulations to Erin for winning her bronze star award. She is a great example of our Learning Behaviours, especially happiness. It is rare to find her without a big smile! Who will be next? Good luck everyone!

Also congratulations to our new School Councillors, Eco Leaders and Play Leaders who were presented with their badges last week.

School Councillors – Dylan and Erin

Eco Leaders – Poppy and Caitlyn

Play Leaders – Daisy and Hugh

Maths

We have moved on from Place Value now and are working on our addition and subtraction skills. This wek we have been looking at fact families. For example:

5 + 7 = 12, 7 + 5 = 12, 12 – 5 =7, 12 – 7 =5
