Welcome to our class page!
What a delightful term it has been with our mythical creatures. The children have worked really hard this term and have enjoyed the dragon story engaging them within a new adventure at school every day. The children have produced phenomenal work alongside the topic and have grown each day. Thank you to all the parents for all the support and excitement you have shown in order to carry this topic through.
As part of our geography, we will make ourselves more aware of the world around us by watching the BBC Newsround and reading First News. This will support our speaking and listening skills as well as helping us gain knowledge by identifying countries, continents and oceans.
Please visit our page regularly to see what we are up to!
Our Christian value this half term is Thankfulness.
PE: Our PE days are Monday and Wednesdays Please practise getting changed at home so you can be super speedy in school!
Please ensure that the children have their PE kit in school every day as we try to keep the timetable flexible so that we can make the most of the weather and other opportunities to teach PE.
Star of the Week:
Hot Chocolate Friday Winner:
If your child reads at least four times a week for ten weeks throughout the term then they will receive a certificate which they can proudly show off. So please remember to write in the partnership book about the reading your child has been doing! Reading books will be changed if there is a note saying the child has finished their book. Your child may come home with three books towards the end of the week, this is so they can build their fluency and also have books to read over the weekend.
Maths homework is given fortnightly. The year 2's are focusing on multiples of 2, 5 and 10. The year 1's are focusing on number bonds to 10 this week.
TT Rockstar is an online maths activity that we have subscribed to and is to be used to develop fluency at home.
The children have been shown how to access the app and it should help the Year 2s to develop the fluency of 2s,5s and 10 times tables.
It may be a little tricky for the Year 1's at this moment in time but they will eventually be learning multiplication in which case it can be used at home. The logins are within the children's partnership books.
Spellings will now be sent home on a Monday, ready for a test the following Friday. We will be practising some of the spellings in school, but, as always, your support would be greatly appreciated with the practice of this. The spellings are usually put together from the phonics sounds the children are learning within school or spellings the children have found difficult within their writing through the week.
Each term the children are asked to complete one activity from a selection that is published at the beginning of the term. This will allow you to share the children 's learning and hopefully complete a task together with your children. The deadline for this term is 16th December.
Here is a list of different websites which your child can visit if they wish to complete some extra practise at home in either maths, times tables, literacy or phonics. To follow a link, copy and paste it into the search bar.
