Year 2 – Week Beginning 26.9.2022

In Science, we will be continuing out topic on animals including humans. We will be researching and discussing the things we need as humans to maintain a healthy lifestyle. In D&T, we will be generating a design of a healthy snack for playtimes. We will use our previous research and linking back to what we have learned in our Science topic to help us decide on the important features of a playtime snack.
In maths this week we will be comparing numbers using our knowledge of place value and using <, > and = symbols. We will also have a go at solving problems, using A.P.E (Answer It , Prove It, Explain It) to ensure we explain our thinking carefully.

In English, we will be building on our work from last week, using the story of Pip and Egg by Alex Latimer and David Litchfield. We will be creating our own expanded noun phrases to help us to write a setting description using illustrations from the book.

Please check the website each week for homework and further updates.
