Week beginning 4th November

This week we have been thinking about fireworks and the 5th November. As part of our English work we have been finding out about onomatopoeic words. These are words that look how they sound. Next we made colourful calligrams of the words. We hope you enjoy reading them.

In maths, we have been comparing and ordering numbers ensuring that we are using the correct mathematical language (greater than/smaller than, greatest/less, equal to etc)

IMPORTANT

Recorders will begin on Monday 11th November, for those pupils who have expressed an interest. Please can you ensure that those pupils bring their recorder with them to school every Monday.

Dates for your diary:

Key Stage 1 Christmas Productions will be on Tuesday 10th December 1.45pm-2.30pm approximately, and Wednesday 11th December 10am-10.45am. More information to follow.

Key Stage 1 trip: We will be going to the Mill Art Centre in Banbury on Wednesday 18th November. PLEAE ENSURE THAT PERMISSION SLIPS ARE RETURNED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

Bookworm update

This is to inform you that we will be taking the children’s reading diaries in on Monday 21st October to collate reading information for the bookworm and reading raffle, not tomorrow 18th October.

Homework

Spellings in Year 2 are no longer set as homework; spelling work will be done as part of our English and phonics lessons during the week.

Today we are sending your child home with a homework folder. Inside this folder you will find a piece of homework and a letter explaining what is to be done and when the homework is due in. Homework should be done as independently as possible and recorded in pencil.

We will update you on here when we next set homework.

Thank you for your support with this.

Art Attack

During our lunchtime art club we created abstract art. We did this by taking a black pen for a walk and using different coloured pens to colour in the spaces. When this was completed, we mounted our work on to coloured paper.

Great work!

Week beginning: 30th September

This week we have continued to look at the features of non-fiction texts in preparation for our own non-chronological reports that we will be writing. To help with our writing we have been generating questions to keep our research focused.

In Maths we are looking at identifying the value of each digit in a two-digit number, partitioning and recombining. There is lots of emphasis on talking about our Maths work and also checking it!

As part of our topic on animals we have created our own animal sculptures, which are now drying out ready for the next part of the process.

IMPORTANT

Children’s belongings need to be clearly labelled as we are spending a great deal of time trying to locate coats, sweatshirts/cardigans, plimsolls etc that haven’t been labelled.

Please remember to write in your child’s reading diary when you hear them read. If they read at least 3 times each week they will be entered in to the school reading raffle draw and could win a book of their choice.

We hope you have a good weekend and that the sun shines!
