In Year 2 we have been learning all about the amazing landmarks of London. We can’t wait for our trip on the London Eye and our cruise up The River Thames!
Later this half term we will be learning about The Great Fire of London and we will write our own diary entries like Samuel Pepys.
We have all been working very hard in maths to develop our understanding of place value. We have worked with our partners to find different ways to make a range of numbers.
Year 2 are very excited about the whole school times table challenge and we have been trying very hard to learn our 2, 5 and 10 times tables.
In our computing lessons we are learning to be Photographers. We have taken lots of interesting pictures of everyday materials and we are going to create our own comic strips.
