This week in Cornwall

Week beginning Monday 19th September

In English this week, we continued reading our half termly text - Look Up! We were introduced to Rocket's family and some fantastic facts about space. As a class we learned some wonderful facts about meteors and wrote them in our books making sure we showed off our beautiful handwriting, capital letters and full stops. Can you remember any of our facts to share with your adult?


In maths this week, we continued our work on place value, in particular looking at number lines. The children were introduced to the term 'interval' and used this understanding to read different numbers lines from 0 to 100. 


In science this week, we learned about nutrition and what elements make up a healthy diet. We also discussed the five main food groups and created our own food diary outlining what we ate the day before. Can you remember the five main food groups? How many of those have you eaten today?


Lastly, in history this week, we continued to look at significant individuals throughout history ranking them based on who we felt was most significant. Can you remember who you thought was the most significant? Explain your thoughts to your adult.

Our Year 2 Team:

This term's first home learning will be set on Thursday 22nd September and will be due the following Tuesday 27th September.
