Year 2 have settled really well into their new year group. They have enjoyed the start of their castle topic and have painted some beautiful knight pictures which are hanging in the cloakroom area. Ideas for their story, based in a castle, are pouring in with problematic quests being planned. Next week is the start of the story writing so I am looking forward to seeing the amount of creativity we have as a class.
In maths we have been doing lots of activities based around place value and have started learning how to count up and down in 10's, 5's and 2's. Any practise at home with this would be great.
In ICT the children have been introduced to an animation programme that they are going to use throughout the term.
In PE the focus was team building and ball skills - leading to mini team games by half term.
