In maths the children are learning expanded column method to add complex numbers. For example 46 + 18 = The children add the ones first ( 6 + 8 = 14). Then they add the tens ( 40 + 10 = 50). Finally they add the answers together ( 14 + 50 = 64). And it looks like this:
In English the children have written their final postcards and they are fantastic. The children were able to use sequencing words such as first, next and then, conjunctions such as but and because, and some children included an exclamation. What brilliant postcards! They will finish decorating them this week so they can be displayed in the classroom (keep an eye on the website for photos).
We hope you have a wonderful half term.
From the Year 2 team.
