Fact families, addition and subtraction bonds to 20 – Y2-Autumn-Block-2-WO1-Fact-families-addition-and-subtraction-bonds-to-20-2019


NEW TEXT: The Boy at the back of the class by Onjali Q. Rauf

Listen to the audio of me reading Chapter 1 –

Task: Make a note and illustrate a character page that could be placed at the start of the book. Who have we met so far? What do you think they may look like?

Add some bullet points outlining what we know about these characters so far.

Handwriting and spelling:

Take some time today to practice your handwriting and spelling. Focus on keeping each letter the same size and sat on the line correctly. You could use your spelling words to help with this.

Spelling words are on the spelling page of the School Website.


We have been focusing on the creation story over the last few weeks. Today I would like you to think about some rules that God (the creator) would put into place to make sure that his creation is properly looked after. What rules would he want us as humans to follow. Remember God put humans on the earth to look after and take care of it but over time lots of people have forgotten this and our planet isn’t the same as it was in the beginning. Think carefully and write down 5 rules you think would be most important.

EG: Recycle our rubbish

In class we have been reading a book about a little boy who gets dressed in his best clothes for a birthday party. Once he is at the Birthday party he has a food fight with one of his friends and ruins his best clothes.

Dear Mrs Smith,

Thank you for inviting me to Tom’s party.

PSHE – Being me in my world – Lesson 4

Think of a time when you were really helpful or somebody was really pleased. How did this make you feel?
Think of a time when you were rewarded or got a treat for something. What did you do? What was your reward? How did you feel?

Look at the picture cards attached:

PSHE Lesson 4

What behaviour choices can they see in each picture? What might the consequence be of this behaviour? Could you think of something these children could do instead to turn it into a more positive situation?




Friday 9th October


We have been continuing with our Number and Place Value work this week. The focus has been very much on ordering and sequencing numbers up to 100.

Children have been using the ‘greater than’ >, ‘less than’ < and equals to =  symbols and vocabulary to order 2-digit numbers.

Eg: 64 > 28 “sixty four is greater than twenty eight because it has more tens”

We extended this by looking at numbers that could complete the below sentence:

64 > _______ > 28 – The aim here is to encourage children to compare numbers and look the sequencing. So the number is ‘less than’ 64 but greater than 28. 53, 42, 29 could be all possible answers.

Using the correct vocabulary is important for the children and we talk about the > and < symbols as if they are crocodiles wanting to eat the bigger number. This encourages the children to look at which way the symbol is pointing and suggest a number that the crocodile would want to eat.

The children should also become familiar with seeing the number sentences in different contexts.
Eg: 72 > fifty three

Seven tens and two ones > Five tens and three ones

72 >  50 + 3


We have been working on recording speech in the first person. The children had to imagine they were a character from our story and writing what they might be thinking at different stages.

Here we are – We used the book this week to look at information texts and we used the WWF website to find out about animals that are becoming endangered. The focus was on retrieving and recording information to answer specific questions such as:
Where does this animal live?

How is it becoming endangered?

Why is this animal so important?



Children have also been working hard in Science, where they are looking at different Materials, RE, PSHE and PE this week.


New spellings have gone home today, TTRockstar results will be in their homework books and children should be reading at home at least 3 times a week if possible.

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Clough.
