Year 2 – Week Beginning 22.11.2021

Christmas Play rehearsals are in full swing in Year 2! The children are doing a fantastic job of learning their lines – please continue to practise these at home as much as possible. Remember to send your child’s costume into school on Monday 29th November ahead of the dress rehearsal and performance the following week, too. Thank you.

This week in Year 2, we will be beginning our History topic on journeys in the past around Birmingham. We will be talking about the importance of Birmingham’s network of canals.

In Maths we will be beginning our topic on money. We will be identifying British currency and combining the totals of coins and notes. To deepen our knowledge further, we will be using our new learning to solve word problems.

In English this week, we will be planning and writing up our Autumnal poems, thinking carefully about expanded noun phrases and similes.

Our vocabulary for the week is:
