Monday 17th September: After drop-off: Meet the Teachers in the Small Hall.
Thank you to those parents who were able to attend the year 2 parents information morning this morning . The slides from the presentations will be available on the school website. Your child should have brought home their weekly home learning book . Please glue in their spellings once they have completed them . The Key Instant recall facts for this term can be glued in as well.
Please could all children bring an egg box and a plastic carrier bag for WEDNESDAY of next week for Science /DT
WHAT WE'VE BEEN DOING THIS WEEK:
We have been learning about George and the Dragon and have written a version of it using similes and repetition for effect. Our constant focus is capital letters and full stops.
In science we made edible dragon poo! In maths we counted items items to 100 effectively and wrote the numbers in words.
Please could you make sure you keep your child’s reading book wallet in their school bag at all times. We read with the children frequently so it is important that we can access their book. It also means the children can change their books independently whenever required.
Children on the Accelerated Reading programme will be re quizzed to find their AR level soon. In the meantime, please continue to read the book they bring home. We will not be using the learn pads to quiz the children on their reading book each week, but will go guided reading with them instead.
WHAT WE'LL BE DOING NEXT WEEK:
In maths we will be looking at different representations of two digit numbers and investigating at place value
In literacy we continue our dragon topic looking at descriptive sentences and asking questions about dragons
Year 2 P.E will be taught on the following days:
Swan Class – Wednesday and Friday
Woodpecker Class – Tuesday and Friday
Please send your children to school in their P.E kit.
Your child should have brought home their home learning diary . Please stick in their homework and keep it stored in their school bag.
