Beautiful, pretty, great, break, steak, again
What a busy half term we have had! We hope you enjoy the half term break aheadJ.
This week we have been listening to each other and sharing stories with each other to inform our friends on what helps us
WHAT WE'VE BEEN DOING THIS WEEK:
This week we have been focussing on PSHE. Opening up to each other has helped us develop our personal feelings and emotional wellbeing. In Literacy we have had sessions on spelling, punctuation and grammar to help us write clearer sentences.
In maths we have been practicing our times tables and learning about division through different resources and pictorial representations to help our learning.
WHAT WE'LL BE DOING NEXT WEEK:
After Half Term, we will continue our Topic “Frozen Planet” and read the story, “The Rainbow Bear” by Michael Morpurgo.
HALF TERM HOMEWORK:
Literacy: Remember to read with your child every day and revisit any tricky words. Please also practice the spellings, and use the Year 2 Common Exception Spelling list handed out at the beginning of the year to practice writing full sentences.
Maths: As we have adopted the Times Table Rock Stars Maths programme (TTRS), we will no longer be sending home the Good Times Challenge. Please go through the Maths practice sheets with the aim of increasing fluency and speed. These sheets are sent home weekly.
Class P.E dates (after Half term)
Swan Class – Monday (Indoor P.E), Tuesday (Outdoor P.E)
Woodpecker Class – Monday (Indoor P.E) and Tuesday (Outdoor P.E)
Kingfisher Class – Monday (Indoor P.E) and Tuesday (Outdoor P.E)
On P.E days please send your child in their outdoor PE kit; jogging bottoms, t-shirt, jumper, trainers.
We hope you have a restful Half term! There is an INSET DAY on Monday 19th February, therefore we look forward to seeing you back on Tuesday 20th February.
