Welcome back Year 2. This week we have been learning all about turns. We have learnt about quarter turns, half turns, full turns and clockwise and anti-clockwise. The children showed great perseverance during these lessons as this was a tricky concept to grasp. In writing we have been learning a new story all about a young girl called Katie and her brother Jack and their visit to London. We have also been using all of our knowledge gained for far about London and the Great Fire to create our first double-page spread. Well done Year 2 for a great start back.

This week we have been thinking about our mental health and how connecting with nature can help us feel better. We took part in a mindfulness exercise, where we took ourselves to our mind’s garden. We thought about all the positive emotions that would be in our garden and the negative emotions that would be the weeds or storm clouds. We also went outside and spent some time looking at the clouds and listening to the sounds around us. In maths we have been looking at measuring length in cm and m and comparing them. This week we have become journalists. We have been looking at newspaper reports. identified their key features and planned our own newspaper report on the Great Fire of London. We have also been looking at symbols in RE. We have identified symbols around us and then created symbols that represent us. Well done Year 2, this has been a very busy week and you have all worked extremely hard. Enjoy the weekend and I look forward to seeing you all next week.
