Year 2 have been busy writing ‘expanded noun phrases’ in Talk4Writing about our story Rumpelstiltskin; practising persuasive writing in the form of a letter; and developing character descriptions of our innovated characters. In maths we have been using multiplication using repeated addition and grouping, studying arrays (columns and rows) and applying our learning to solve word problems. Our new topic is The Arctic and we are learning about the countries, the habitat, people and animals of the region.
