Key Stage One loved their trip to the zoo. We saw apes, gorillas, elephants, giraffes and even touched a hissing cockroach.
Year 2 have been enjoying getting active in their Maths lessons. We have been learning about money and had an exciting treasure hunt in the classroom.
We have been learning about Animals and their Habitats. We went into the playground and nature area and looked for mini-beasts. Incredibly we found many different types including ladybird larvae, worms, spiders and snails. We also categorised things into; living, dead and never alive.
We have been investigating symmetry using numicon.
Year 2 cheered enthusiastically and enjoyed watching the cyclists.
To launch our new topic we went on an exciting flight to the Bahamas. We participated in a range of activities which included: learning simple creole, using map skills creating music with Caribbean influences and preparing and trying food that would be found in the Bahamas.
Year 2 have been learning about Roald Dahl. They have been reading The Enormous Crocodile and the Twits.
They are going to write their own stories based on Roald Dahl. A character from one of his stories is going to visit them!
Reading record and colour-banded reading book in their book bag.
A PE kit should be left in school and can be taken home to be washed at the end of each half term.
A named water bottle containing water only.
A blue sweater for when we go out on trips.
Monday – Fortnightly Home Learning Project in for the following Thursday.
Friday – The children have a spelling test every Friday. They must have their yellow books in school on a Friday to receive their new spelling for the following week. We recommend children use the look, say, cover, spell, check method to practise these.
Reading – Children are expected to read at least 3 times a week with a parent or carer.
We ask you to support your child by hearing them read their individual levelled reading books at home. We would appreciate it if parents could sign and make a comment in the reading diaries at least three times a week. Helpers may also hear your child read their individual reading book in school, so it is important that this book is brought to school every day. Books are changed in school every week.
