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.

Week 3

This week, in English we have been looking at the book ‘The Queen’s Handbag’ written by Steve Antony. We had to predict what we thought would happen from just looking at the front cover. All of the children made some good predictions. Later on in the week, we read and ordered the book. We discovered that the bird stole the Queen’s handbag and travelled all around the country carrying it while the Queen followed. The Queen finally got her bag back at the finish line of the London marathon.

During maths, we have been focusing on our number skills. We started the week by finding one more and one less from a particular number. We then moved on to looking at numbers which are more than or less than other numbers with the help from Chomp the Greedy Crocodile. We learnt that when Chomp has two numbers in front of him he would always eat the biggest number, which showed us which < or > sign to use. We finished by completing our big maths activity tasks.

I have been really impressed with all of the amazing home learning I have seen so far. When a new piece of home learning is brought in, the children will show and tell the rest of the class what they have produced. It is lovely to see all of the children confidently sharing their home learning to their classmates.

Reminders:

  • Harvest festival- 9;15am on Thursday 28th in the Church.
  • Please ensure that your child’s jumpers are named to avoid these going missing.
  • Homework and spelling books are to be handed in on Monday.

Have a good weekend.

Week 2

We have had another busy week in Class 2. In our English lessons, we have been writing sentences about our favourite animal. In our sentences, we had to make sure that we included capital letters and full stops in the correct places.

During maths over the week, we have been learning about how to match and write numbers in both words and numerals. All of the children have worked hard to use their phonics skills to help them to read different numbers in words.

In the afternoons this week, we have learnt all about Viking longboats in history, how Mondrian used primary colours in his art work and what materials different objects around the classroom are made of in science.

Reminders:

-       Due to a timetabling change, our PE lessons will now take place on a Tuesday and a Friday. Please make sure your child has their kit in school on these days.

-       Homework and spelling books are to be handed in on Monday for marking and new spellings and homework to be given on Tuesday.

-       Clubs begin on Monday.

-       Home learning grids went home on Tuesday. The children have up to half term to complete 6 of the tasks on the sheet (they must pick one English and one maths task). I am really looking forward to see what tasks the children complete over the upcoming weeks.

Have a lovely weekend.

Week 1

Welcome to Class 2!

The children have had a great first week in Class 2. It was lovely to hear all about their summer holidays. This week, the children have all been busy getting to know and settling into their new classroom and outside area. They have also been practicing and recapping their counting skills in maths and letter formation in English. I have been impressed with the work that all of the children have produced this week and enjoyed seeing their brilliant handwriting! I look forward to seeing this continue during the year.

We began our transportation history topic this week, where we looked at how different modes of transport have changed over time and created a timeline to show this.

Reminders:

  • ·PE lessons are on a Tuesday and a Wednesday. Please ensure that your child has their kit in school labelled with their name.
  • ·Please record your daily reading with your child in their reading record book.
  • Water bottles, as in Class 1 should be in school daily.
  • Please can any fruit for snack time be labelled to avoid any confusion.
  • ·Homework and spellings will start on Tuesday. Please refer to the letter given out on Thursday, which will provide more details about the new home learning system. I am happy to answer any questions you may have about this.

Have a lovely weekend and I look forward to seeing you all on Monday.

Miss Leake.
