Welcome to Squirrels
Year 2 have had a fantastic start to the school year. To launch our topic, ‘Around the World’ we held our very own Mini Olympics which was great fun. In English the children have been learning lots of new vocabulary which they included when they wrote their own sports commentaries! This week they have included nouns, adjectives, verbs and even adverbs to write amazing Olympic poems. In Geography they have learnt to identify the different continents and oceans in the world and in Forest School we recapped the countries in the United Kingdom. In maths we have been focusing on improving our confidence in solving problems with number. This includes representing numbers in different ways, comparing numbers, extending sequences, doubling, halving and recognising patterns.
