Year 2 Blog

Welcome to Year 2!

We have had a great start to Year 2 so far and we have been very busy! We have already had: visits from Brunel and a nurse called Emily who taught us all about her job; scooter training so now we are safe to scoot and we started our weekly recorder lessons.

In our Reading and Writing lessons we have been using our acting skills. We have been learning to retell a losing tale and have had a go at acting as some of the characters from the story. In our Writing lessons we have been learning to punctuate sentences correctly and up level sentences to make them even better! We have also just finished writing our stories based on The Magic Finger. We are trying hard to use capital letters, finger spaces, noun phrases and full stops in our writing.

Next week, we are starting to write a non-chronological report on Brunel. Good job we had a visit from him a couple of weeks ago so we already know lots of facts!

Also, we have been looking at plenty of inspirational people as part of our topic, such as: Kandinsky, Florence Nightingale, Louis Armstrong and Bob Marley. We are excited to learn about influential people as part of ‘Black History Month’ that starts on Monday.
