The children have settled well, back into Year 2. We have now started on our new Topic, Knights and Castles, where this half term we will be concentrating on the monarchy. The children have learnt the meaning of monarchy, as well as knowing that Queen Elizabeth II is the reigning monarch. They have also thought about what they would do if they were King or Queen. Some ideas were letting children drive cars and having chocolate whenever we want.
In Literacy we have been reading the Paper Bag Princess, comparing the dragon, princess and prince with ones we know from books and films. This also relates to our word of the week, which is 'stereotype' as we found the ones in this book are different.
We have been carrying on with addition and subtraction in Maths. We are using the column method as well as using number lines.
With the cold weather, please can children have tracksuit bottoms in the PE bags as well as shorts.
