Autumn 2, Week 1

This week in English, we have been learning about the four different sentence types. These are statements, questions, commands and exclamations.

In Maths, we have been recapping our number bonds to 10 and 20. We have also been using the resources around the classroom to help us to add different numbers together.

During the afternoons this week, we have learnt about the different weathers in each season during science; what an aerial and ground level view is in geography and created firework pictures using a range of mediums in art and computing.

Reminders:

· Please ensure all PE kits are in school all week with the correct clothing inside.

· A new home learning grid was sent out on Tuesday with all new activities based around our ‘explorers’ topic. An online copy is on the website.

Have a lovely weekend.

Week 7

In English this week, we have been using our Mr Men or Little Miss plans to create our own story. We thought carefully about what we wanted to happen in our story at the beginning, middle and end. We even illustrated our stories. At the end of the week, we went into Class 1 and shared our story with some of the children in there.

During our maths lessons, we have been looking carefully at our number bonds to 10. Number bonds or number pairs are pairs of numbers that make up a given number (10). For example 1 + 9 = 10.

Over the half term, I would be great if you could practise your number bonds to 10. You can write these down or your grown up at home can verbally test you like we do in class.

E.g. If I say 4 you say… 6

Well done to all of you for your fantastic home learning this half term. I look forward to see what you produce next half term!

Reminders:

  • A new home learning grid will be sent out after half term with different activities for the children to complete 6 of.
  • Reading evening – Thursday 2nd November at 6pm.

I hope you all have a lovely half term.

Week 6

Over the past 2 weeks in English, we have been looking at and reading a range of Mr. Men books written by Roger Hargreaves. We have discussed the different characters, the features that you find in the books and how the characters look like their name. This week we created our own Mr. Men or Little Miss character on the computer and thought about a name for them. From this, we planned a story using our character.

http://www.themistermen.co.uk/stuff/game8.html?game=makeamrmen This is the website where you can make your own Mr Men or Little Miss characters.

In maths this week, we have been counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. As a class we have verbally counted in 2s from 2-20, in 5s from 5-50 and in 10s from 10-100. In our math lessons, we have had some number sequence challenges where we had to fill in the correct missing numbers.

During the afternoons this week, we have thought about and created a prayer about food in RE, tested different materials to see if they are waterproof, not waterproof, opaque or translucent in science and in history we learnt about the history of aeroplanes. We designed and created our own flying machines using different materials just like the Wright brothers did.

Reminders:

  • Please ensure that your child has a pair of tracksuit trousers and a jumper in their PE bags to allow for PE lessons to take place outside.
  • Next week is the final week before half term. Please can your child bring in any of their remaining pieces of home learning. Well done to those children who have already completed their 6 pieces.
    • Please ensure that your child’s jumpers are named to avoid these going missing.
  • Wednesday (18th) – School photos.
  • Friday (20th) – Class 5 cake day.

Have a lovely weekend.

Miss Leake.

Week 4

This week in Class 2, we created our stained glass fruit and vegetables for the Harvest Festival. We carefully tried to cut out the middle and place different pieces of tissue paper over our chosen fruit or vegetable. During our lessons, we wrote some sentences about why we give food for Harvest and with Mrs Wilson, we looked at the story of the Little Red Hen, which taught us about the process of making bread.

During the afternoons this week we have learnt about and mixed our own secondary colour paints in art, found objects around the classroom which are made from more than one material  in science and learnt about the different techniques to use when taking a photo on an IPad in computing.

Reminders:

  • Monday 2nd - Open session (3:30 – 6:30).
  • Friday 6th - Hedgehog day (Donation suggestions are on the newsletter).
  • Please ensure that your child’s jumpers are named to avoid these going missing.

Have a lovely weekend.

Class 2 Homework

 

Year 2 - Please learn your Harvest Festival line.

Year 1 - Please practise ordering the days of the week with an adult at home. If you feel that you can do this easily, then get an adult at home to ask you some of these questions:

  1. What day is it today?
  2. What day is it tomorrow?
  3. What is the last day of the school week?
  4. What is the first day of the school week?
  5. What days are the weekend?
  6. What day was it yesterday?
  7. What day comes after Thursday?
  8. What day will it be after Sunday?
  9. How many days are there in one week?

As this is a verbal homework task, there is no need to write anything down.

Any questions please ask.
