Marpool Primary School

Believe, Achieve, Succeed

Year 2

Welcome to Wingnut and Elder Base!

 This week, we have been:

  • learning how to create new tints of a colour by adding white;
  • learning more about the features of jungle/rainforest landscapes and the animals that live in them;
  • counting in 2s, 5s and 10s;
  • practising writing Year 2 sentences, including expanded noun phrases and coordinating conjunctions every time we write.

To support us at home, you might: 

  •  Please read at least three times a week. Don't forget Bug Club is still available for you to use!
  • use globes and atlases at home to talk about our planet.  Can you name the seven continents and five oceans?
  • continue to practise your child’s maths skills by using Times Table Rock Stars or Prodigy.
  • practise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s (up to 100) forwards and backwards.
