Autumn 1 2020..

It has been a lovely first term back at school. Whitby and St Mary's have made an excellent start to their Year 2 school year. Mrs Skeet and Mr Arundale are so PROUD of every single child that has displayed perseverance, determination and bravery in their first term back at school. rnrnIn English our focus has been 'George and the Dragon'. Children have done some excellent sentence writing around the main characters and settings in the story using adjectives, simile's, alliteration, subordination and synonyms. Our focus in Maths has been place value, working out the tens and ones in numbers and using a part whole model to work out number bonds. We have also looked at number sequences too. rnrnIn science we have been building castles and making 'boulders' to destroy the castles in order to develop our understanding of everyday materials. rnrnBoth classes have enjoyed Martial Arts lessons and iMedia with Junior Jam.rnrnrnWhitby have also enjoyed music lessons on a Wednesday with Mr Duffy. They have learnt how to play the ukulele.rnrnrn
