Phonics and reading.
We are using Read Write Ink programme to learn our sounds. Please see the video at the bottom of this page about sounds pronunciation.
In December children will be tested in Phonics. They will be reading 'alien' (nonsense) words with diagraphs, so practising sounds every day is important. Here are some examples of those words:
praim gawn boand ...

Here are some resources from Read Write Ink Oxford Owls website:
Home reading: Thank you for looking after the books and returning them on time. You are giving great support to your child by encouraging them read every day. Children have been given two books on Fridays and Tuesdays.
The phonics Read Write Ink books might seem easy but they are given to remind children about the diagraphs before their testing. Please encourage your children to read it and ask your child to pay attention to the diagraphs. The other book is chosen according to their reading level. Please remember to sign the diary when your child reads it.
This is what we have been learning in Year 2.
In Maths we have been practising number bonds to 10 and 20. Children are getting very good at deriving the facts from number bonds and explaining their thinking:
"If I know that 3 + 7 = 10 then I know that 13 + 7 is 20 23 + 7 is 30 and 30 + 70 is 100..."
In Literacy we have been inventing a portal story. We've looked at examples of portals in literature:
In History we have learnt about life in London in 17th century. We have looked at the objects from the past and discussed the differences between modern life and olden days.

In Literacy our story is Monstersaurus.
we are learning about place value of numbers to 100.
Children are practising to say:
