What have Year 2 done this week?
Maths- this week we have continued looking at our number bonds to help us subtract across 10 in different ways. We have looked at bigger numbers this week using our number bond knowledge to help us.
We have used number lines, base 10 and part part whole models to help us with subtracting. As the numbers get bigger, number lines and our number bonds help us to work out the answers more easily.
Here is a useful website which shows how we work out our number bonds to 10 and 100.
We are looking at adding 2 digit numbers together and using our tens and ones to help us.
Nativity- The nativity WAS AMAZING!! WELL DONE TO ALL OF YEAR 2 FOR THEIR HARD WORK.
Home learning- WOW! What an amazing range of creative and interesting home learning we have had at our show and tell this week. It was so great to see how many home made things there were and how hard the children worked on them! Well done!
English- We looked a postcards and wrote our own version of a postcard about our nativity.
Please remember to read each night and log in your new planners! Reading books and menus are ready to be taken home so please make sure you have yours.
Your purple mash and mathletics logins are in your planners now.
*SHOW AND TELL ON THURSDAY 14TH* It can be about anything school or Christmas related!

Have a lovely weekend,
- https://login.mathletics.com/ - You will find work has been set to consolidate the learning that has been happening in class- this will be set soon.
- Do not forget to get rocking and use https://play.ttrockstars.com/ It is a fantastic way to learn all the Times Tables. At the moment we are not doing this in class, but it is absolutely fine if you want to do some at home!
If your child has read a book already or finds any book ‘easy’ then this is GREAT! Repetitive reading will support children’s comprehension and impact their spelling. Children will be changing their own books and if they pick a book they have read before then they should find it easier to read and be confident when reading.

This week's phonics
This week we are going to be reading words with the ‘o’ phoneme . We will be recapping our knowledge of the ‘i’ (grin) sound and the different ways of writing the ‘o’ sound. The children should be confident reading words with o, ow, oe, oa, o-e
This is the way we describe our letters in Year 2 to help us with our letter positioning on the line,
