Happy Holidays!

admin on: Class 2

So we've made it to the holidays (well almost for me!). A huge congratulations to the children for a brilliant first half term. We've had a lot to cope with but we've done it and it was an absolute pleasure to speak to you all at parent's evenings this week. 

This week we've enjoyed learning all about Amy Johnson and the children wrote their longest piece of writing yet! I was super impressed about all the facts they had remembered about her - why not ask them all about it!?

No formal homework for the holidays - please enjoy some precious family time together. After the hols, I'm going to do the 'Number Bonds to 10 Challenge'. So if you want to do any work - then practise the number bonds to 10 (1 + 9, 2 + 8, 3 + 7, 4 + 6, 5 + 5). Children NEED to be really fluent at this - so that it really becomes instinctive. The challenge will be to stand up and have numbers thrown at them (not literally!) and they have to respond with the correct number bond. So I might say '6', they need to shout back '4'! We'll have a competition to see how many they can get right in 1 minute. All children will be invited to have a go (if they don't want to do it in front of everyone, they can do it just with me!).

Don't forget to join in our balloon race:

Have a lovely holiday, stay safe and see you on the 2nd of November!

Happy Friday everyone. A huge thank you to all of you that sent in your extreme reading photos on TEAMS, there were some amazing ones! I think we'll make a display in school of them. I've popped another nice challenge on there for you, so you can get used to using TEAMS. This week, I'm please to see that we were KS1 Mathletics champions! You'll find an adding activity and a fact families activity on there this week. There's also a number bonds to 10 activity in the blue book - some many of the children don't know their number bonds and it is ESSENTIAL that they do - so please spend some time on this activity.

We've finished our 'Shackleton's Journey' book about the famous explorer today, why not ask your child about their journey and what they can remember? We did some beautiful chalk mountain pictures inspired by the book...

Spelling Shed words are:

badge

edge

bridge

fudge

age

huge

change

charge

village

Finally, I just like to share the FONS virtual balloon race link:

Have a lovely weekend and I look forward to 'seeing' you all virtually at parent's evenings next week.

Stay safe,

Homework 09/10/20

admin on: Class 2

Well we've made it to Friday again, the weeks seem to be flying by! This week has been another week of measuring in maths - both weighing and looking at liquids. We played a great interactive game on Tuesday - Mostly Postie, click here to have a go!

Today we've been collaging backgrounds for our paper boats - messy but fun! The children wanted to take them home tonight, but I think we're going to put them on display.

 

Thank you for your support, once again, with homework. Please keep trying to log onto TEAMS. I now have 14 families who have managed, but I'd like everyone - so please get in touch if you're having trouble. I've popped a little activity on there for you to try this week.

Spelling Shed this week is words ending in double consonants:

puff      

fluff     

 bell       

 doll       

 grass    

 kiss       

 buzz     

 fizz       

 clock    

 back

Mathletics is measuring and weighing. There's also a little odds/evens activity in the blue book - it says 'click' on the number but please colour the numbers to show the odds and evens. 

Have a lovely weekend.

Homework 2nd October 2020

admin on: Class 2

It's been another great week in Y2 with lots of measuring in maths and list sentences in literacy. We've also made a great job of our paper boats in D&T:

We had a looked at 'fact families' in maths, so we recognise that once we know one thing, we actually know four things!...

Homework this week is Mathletics (counting in 2, 5, 10 again and sequencing numbers), Spelling Shed:

went
was
why
what
when
who
which

I've added a little task on TEAMs to ensure you get used to using this platform. Thank you to those of you who logged on this week and completed the ship description - there were some amazing ones. If you have trouble getting on, please let me know. Keep up with the reading, I can really see a difference in the children that are reading regularly at home - always write a comment in the diary as I just love to read them and it really does matter to your child. Blue books have a 'dots and dashes' or 'beans and sausages' activity in there, children need look for the sounds in the words and either dot or dash them - sounds complicated, but the children are experts on this and know what to do!

Finally, we've talked a lot about 'independence' in class and being able to just have a go at tasks and activities without the need for an adult to be sat next to them. Lots of children, understandably, have lost a little of their self-motivation and so if you could chat about these things at home, it would really help us out. 

Have a wonderful weekend, stay safe and see you on Monday!
