Lost and Found

October 6, 2017

This week, we met one of our Year 2 learning goals of navigating using simple compass directions. We made huge chalk maps outside and directed our friends on adventures across wild seas:

We continued to enquire playfully into our topic Adventurers and Explorers. We had a chance to be in a group we hadn’t before, like coin making.

Another adventure came in our focus book Lost and Found, which helped us to learn about exclamation marks..

In Maths, we learned to ‘make 10’ when adding numbers that go over the 10 – it was really tricky but we’re getting there. Here are some practice  re-grouping 10 sheets to help you crack it!


Next week

  • We will have a special book week with a new mystery text that has no words but a mind-tangling story in it.
  • Mastering our addition and subtraction skills
  • Delving deeper into the life of Columbus

What are parental controls?

Parental controls are software and tools which you can install on phones or tablets, games consoles or laptops – and even your home broadband.

You can also use them to help you block or filter the content your child sees when searching online. And family-friendly public WiFi can help when you’re out and about.

Parental controls are also available to help you to:

    • plan what time of day your child can go online and how long for
    • stop them from downloading apps they’re too young for
    • manage the content different members of the family can see.

See the following link from the NSPCC for detailed information on how to set up parental controls on computers and digital devices.
