Welcome back to our blog!

It's been another busy week in Year 2!

In English we have continued to look at Julia Donaldson's The Troll. The children have written their own version of the story, linking it to the Three Billy Goats Gruff. We have also done some comprehension work on the story, thinking about how the characters feel. Next week we are starting a new book!


In Maths we have been ordering numbers and comparing numbers using the greater than and less than symbols. 


In Topic we have looked at a timeline of Wigan. We have learnt when buildings were built and when Wigan became a town. 


During our Science lessons we have looked at different life cycles. This week it was the human life cycle. We looked at all the different stages of the cycle and what happens during each stage. The children will be carrying out an investigation next week!


Love all the staff in 2W


Welcome to Year 2!


Welcome back to our class blog. What a busy couple of weeks we've had in year 2 so far!


In English we have been reading the story 'The Troll'  We have been describing the troll and thinking about how it is similar to other stories such as 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'. We decided to write our own version of the story including our own animals such as cats, dogs, hippos and even unicorns. 


In Maths we have been working on place value. We have been ordering numbers and spelling their names. We have also been partitioning numbers to find out how many 10s and 1s are in them and are getting really good at it.


In Science we have been learning about animals including humans. We have learnt about the different groups of animals - mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds and fish. We have also been thinking about animals and their babies, and how they change as they grow.


Our topic this half term is 'Wonderful Wigan'. We have been learning about what makes our town so wonderful! We have been learning about the famous people who have come from Wigan and the surrounding areas such as Richard Ashcroft, Sir Ian McKellen, George Formby, Theodore Major and Sir Bradley Wiggins. 


Thank you for reading
