Year 2 Weekly Bulletin

Literacy

This week we will be reading ‘and responding to ’The Egg’ and ‘The Dragon Snatcher’ by author M P Robertson. We will be looking at the vocabulary used in these stories in preparation for writing our own stories.

 

How to help at home

 

When reading with your children pick out interesting words and phrases and discuss them.

What does it mean? Why do you think the author has used it?

How does it make the reader feel? You could try putting some of them into a sentence.

 

Maths

  This week we will continue our work on number facts. We will be learning to apply number facts to solve calculations in the most

efficient way.

How to help at home

 

Continue to practice number facts with your children such as doubles and halves and number bonds to 10 and 20.

You could try topmarks.co.uk for lots of fun games to practise number facts.

Encourage children to use     number facts instead of counting on their fingers.
