# Year 2 Homework 23/9/16

This week’s homework was based on our learning throughout the week.

In English, we have been learning about the importance of adjectives and the importance of choosing the right adjectives!. For homework, the children need to sort the adjectives into different categories e.g. happy, sad, scared etc. They are then challenged to write a sentence including the adjectives.

In Maths we are still learning about greater than and less than using the symbols > < however our focus this week has been on money.

If you have any questions regarding the homework, please come and see us and we’ll be happy to help!

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Allison and Miss Cargill.

# Materials!

In Science, Year 2 have been learning all about different materials and their properties. We went on a hunt around the school for different materials and thought about how we could describe them. It was so much fun! See what materials and objects you can find in your house. What properties do they have?

On Monday the children learnt all about Eid. They heard and acted out the story of why Eid is celebrated. Then we looked at how people celebrate Eid such as going to the Mosque to pray, wearing special clothes, designing mehndi patterns, giving presents and eating special food. We realised that it was similar to how Catholic’s celebrate a special event such as Christmas or Easter.

Hi,

Welcome back, these first two weeks have gone so quickly and the children have learnt so much already! A big well done for all the children who have been bringing in their reading books each day, it is lovely to see so many children enjoying their reading.

Attached is this week’s homework. There is a maths worksheet based on comparing numbers using the symbols > and <  If your child is finding this easy then there is a challenge extension on the back. They have gone over this is in class but it is still quite challenging so don’t be worried if your child needs some help.

There is also a grammar worksheet based on verbs. The children have had lots of fun this week making up silly sentences with verbs in them! See if you can come up with some together.
