Spring Week 6

We have had a great week in class 2!

In English, we continued using the book Traction Man is here written by Mini Grey. We used verbs to describe what Traction Man is doing on different pages and we created our own adventure for him to go on.

In maths this week, we have been learning how to tell o’clock and half past times. We created our own analogue clock and took them home to practise with. We have also learnt how to read and draw the hands on analogue clocks.

Today we finished our history topic about the Great Fire of London by having a guest in to tell us all about the Great Fire. We worked together as a class to practice our 17th century firefighting technique using our plastics buckets and re-enacted a lot of different scenes.

I hope you all have a lovely half term!

Feeling Good!

As the title of the blog states' Feeling Good'. A lovely week in school with so many different visitors and things to talk about. Class 6 have had some fantastic suggestions and ideas linked with Well-being week. At the launch of the week Miss Gale explained all the things she had planned and that got us motivated.

However Class 6 may start to think im going crazy as we have spent some time this week on SATs materials and identifying where our gaps may be so that we can keep everything progressing forward. I have to say I have had some super writing about e-safety and Mrs Archer was impressed by the creative writing on Tuesday. We are trying really hard to get this ready to put up on display ready for the open session on Monday.

In PE today we were also working with Mr Jefferies and Mr Smith planning our PE display board which again should hopefully be up ready to show you on Monday if you come along.

Tonight your child should also have their parent appointment time for Wednesday. I do know there is a tournament on so have tried to cater as best i can for everyone. I explained to the children that if there were any problems then to just see me or even say when you pop in on Monday. Looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday.

A relatively short blog this week. Do try to encourage your child to explain or carry out some of the activities that have been sent home as I did not give out homework or spellings this week as the children were looking at SATs questions. I have explained to the children that i shall be giving work out on Tuesday and not to panic if a little bit more than usual as I'm putting in a few fun things for over the half term.

Hope you all have a really lovely weekend and CLass 6 see if you can fulfil some of those well-bing pledges.

See you on Monday.

Spring 1 Week 5

This week was all about well-being! We thought about ways of staying healthy, safe and happy! During our fruit workshop we got to try lots of different fruits such as figs, passion fruit, dragon fruit, star fruit and physalis. The children were very good about trying something new! 

In Literacy we wrote a recount about the Good Samaritan and thought about what the moral of this story is. We also discussed our current school value 'Service' and thought about how we can link this back to our story.

In Maths we looked at the column method for subtraction and solved some tricky 2 step word problems using addition and subtraction!

Please note that due to lots of extra curricular activities for Arts Day and Wellbeing Week, we have not been able to read with all the children. Reading will be back to normal next week! 

Have a lovely weekend and hopefully see lots of you on Monday night for open session!

Spring Week 5

In English this week, we have been looking at the book Traction Man is here, written by Mini Grey. We used adjectives to describe Traction Man and what clothing he wears.

In maths, we have been learning how to find halves and quarters of shapes.

Over this week, we have also done a lot of work on wellbeing. As a class we have talked about how to look after ourselves and how we can stay safe. We had an exciting day on Thursday when we learnt about different fruits and vegetables and got to try them too!


-      Open session on Monday (3.30-6.30pm).

-      On Friday (15th), we will be having a Great Fire of London morning to finish our history topic. Please could your child bring in a named plastic bucket for Friday in order for them to be a part of one of the activities.

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Leake
