Numeracy:  We have been focusing on number bonds to 10 this week and are trying to get really quick at them!  We have a special rhyme that helps us - why not ask us about it!  We used our number bonds to solve addition problems, spotting the two numbers that make 10, then adding on the extra ones!
 
Literacy:  We have used our new-found knowledge about the Great Fire of London to create fantastic non-chronological reports.  We checked our information and made notes using laptops and fact books.  Then we included sub-headings, illustrations and a "did you know?" fact at the end!
 
The Christmas atmosphere is already building in Year 2... we have been perfecting our singing and acting skills rehearsing our nativity on the stage and creating some fantastic festive decorations to sell at the Christmas Fayre this Saturday.
