This week in Year 2

Here is a summary of what we have been learning this week in Fireflies.


We have been learning about adding small numbers together using blocks and mental methods. We have also looked at how these calculations can help us to add together tens. For example 1 + 2 = 3 so we know that 10 + 20 = 30. You can practise some of these at home if you would like.

We have also looked at 10 more and 10 less than a number and noting how the number changes.


We have started looking at the wonderful Meerkat Mail story by Emily Gravett. You can view a version of the story online: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DcwuTRQ16MU . We will be using this book to explore writing postcards and using the past tense. Have you got any postcards at home?
