Autumn 1, Week 6

Class 2 have been working extremely hard this week. In English, we have been looking at some of the different adventures Mr. Benn has been on. We mainly focused on Mr. Benn’s diving adventure. From using his adventure, we could identify and retell the events in the beginning, middle and end of the story. In maths, we have been learning how to count in 2s and 5s. We used a range of different resources to help us with our learning, these included, 100 squares, number lines and the outdoor washing line!

Over the past 6 weeks, I have been encouraging independence with changing of books and taking them home at the end of the day. Regular reminders are given to the children about this routine throughout the day and I can see this is improving.

A number of items of clothing, especially jumpers, remain un-named. This makes it very difficult to return them to their rightful owners. Please can you make sure that all items of clothing are named. In class, we have discussed and been working on putting our jumpers straight into our bags when they are taken off to avoid loss of items. This is work in progress and I am sure this will develop over the upcoming weeks.

Reminders:

-      When bringing in a snack, please could this be put into a named container or bag to avoid any confusion.

-      Class 2 family afternoon is on Monday (15th) 1:15pm-3:00 pm.

-      Rearranged open session is on Wednesday 24th 3:30pm-6:30pm. This is a drop in session to have a look at your child’s amazing work they have produced in their books.

Have a lovely weekend.

Autumn 1, Week 4

This week in class 2 we have been working very hard.

In English, we have learnt about what we need to include in our sentences: capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.

In maths, we have looked at using our counting skills to find missing numbers on a 100 square and number line. We have also applied our number knowledge to challenging questions.

In addition to all of this, we have been learning our harvest festival song, retelling the creation story, identifying physical features of the Arctic and describing properties of materials.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Summer week 5

We have had a very Royal week in Class 2! As a class, we wrote a letter to the Queen which today has been posted to Buckingham Palace to tell the Queen all about our last history topic. We ended the week today with a Royal tea party with Class 1. We ate jam scones and finger sandwiches and played pin the veil on the bride. Watch out for some photos of our party on the website soon.

This week the children in year 2 have been working extremely hard on their quizzes, while the years 1’s have been equally working hard on creating, planning and writing their own story book.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and enjoy watching the Royal wedding.

Autumn 2, Week 6

We have had a very festive week in Class 2. We have all been really busy designing and making our Christmas hats, cards and calendars. In Maths, we have continued to learn all about 2D shapes and their properties. We have also completed an independent big write where we had to finish the end of the story about Santa and why he thought he had ruined Christmas.

Reminders:

-      The carol service takes place on Tuesday 12th December at 2:15pm.

-      The children have been provided with costumes at school ready for Tuesday’s carol service. Any additional pieces of clothing that the children may need will be found written in their monkey book.

-      Please ensure that the children learn their lines and the hymn words ready for Monday’s rehearsal.

-      On Friday, the children chose what food they would like to bring to the class party on Monday 18th December. You will get a slip to inform you of their choice on Monday.

-      PE kits will go home on Friday and any kit left un-named in the classroom will go to the lost property box next to the front office.

Have a lovely weekend.

Autumn 2 Week 3

It was lovely to see so many of you this week during our family afternoon. I know the children really enjoyed it.

In English this week, we have been reading a new book called ‘That rabbit belongs to Emily Brown’ written by Cressida Cowell. During our lessons, we have used a range of different adjectives to describe Emily Brown and the different places Emily and Stanley explored. We finished the week by writing a postcard from one of the places that we would have liked to have explored with Emily and Stanley.

In maths, we have looked at the different ways and resources you can use to make a particular number. During the week, we have also been practising our addition skills. We learnt that you can write the two numbers you want to add together in any order. For example, 2+3=5 or 3+2=5.

Mini Olympics

On Wednesday morning, the children will be taking part in a sporting event. Please ensure that the children arrive to school promptly (coach leaves at 9am) in their Outdoor PE kits (blue joggers, white t-shirt, blue jumper and trainers). The children are to bring their non-school uniform to school in their PE bags, and then they can get changed when we get back to school at lunchtime.

Reminders:

  • Stapled into the children’s monkey book is their parent consultation time and day.
  • PE kits will be sent home on Tuesday ready for Wednesday morning.
  • Non-school uniform (Wednesday 22nd) – please refer to the newsletter to know what the children should bring in exchange for wearing their own clothes.
  • Thursday 23rd – Parents consultations

Have a great weekend.
