Year 2 - Woodside

Weekly Update (Week ending 12.7.19)

A lovely sunny week in Woodside.

We had a lovely trip to the seaside, the children really enjoyed themselves and were very well behaved.


In English we wrote a recount of our school trip and planned our own myth stories.


We continue to read our new class book, which the children are really enjoying called 'The World's Worst Children 1' by David Walliams, so please don't be alarmed if they come home talking about strange children and asking to read the books!


In Maths we have been revising some number concepts. This week we focussed on addition, especially how we can use our knowledge of 10 to add numbers together easily

For example

60 + 20 = 80 (6+2 = 8)


 In topic the children learnt about the job of a lighthouse and the history behind these and how Grace Darling was the daughter of a lighthouse keeper. 




Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Quickenden








Next week in Woodside



We shall revise previous number work and focus on subtraction, division and multiplication.



We will write the beginning, middle and end of our myth stories


Science and Topic 

Our topic is  'At the seaside' 

We shall look 'Punch and Judy' puppet shows and create our own.



Can the children find out the story of Punch and Judy?



Homework (to be handed in on Wednesday)

Last week for homework! I did look at these last week but did not get around to marking them. 

New spellings went home on Friday.


Continue to use Active learning and Times Table Rockstars. 


No library on Wednesday as all books are due in.

We shall also be collecting in the children reading books this week so that the reading scheme can be updated and labelled.
