Home Learning

It has been wonderful to see the children engaging in their home learning this week. We have enjoyed finding out about what the children enjoy eating and what foods they dislike. It has also been fantastic to see some of the children practicing their times tables, spellings and handwriting at home. This is great to see them engaging in their learning at home. The more practice they get with their times tables, reading, spelling and handwriting the more of a positive  impact this makes to their learning within school.

The children have enjoyed using adverbs in their writing this week to describe how the characters in the book ‘The Disgusting Sandwich’ move to try and catch the sandwich.

We have also been solving problems in maths using place value.


Year 1 and 2 Tuesday lunch time Science Club

It was lovely to have our first Science Club with all the children that signed up to it this half term. They had great fun being scientists in the garden hunting for bugs and using a magnifying glass to explore them.

Welcome to Year 2!

Welcome back to all the children to a new year at school.

We hope you all had a wonderful summer.

The children have settled into year two so well and we are proud of each and every one of them for the commitment they have been showing to their new learning.

Our first topic for this Autumn term is Food Glorious Food!

The children have been hooked in by two ‘disgusting sandwiches’ that were left in our classrooms over the holidays! The children came in and enjoyed writing questions to find out where it had come from. They then found out it was a badger from the story ‘The Disgusting Sandwich’. The next day the children came back to school to find a mouse from the story had come into the school over night and had been nibbling the sandwich! This has been great fun to gain lots of fabulous writing in English.

We will be continuing with this book over next week where the children will be writing their own version of the story!

Please could we ask all children are reading at home, practicing their times tables (2’s, 5’s and 10’s) and practicing their spellings that will go home every Friday.

Best Regards

Miss Allen, Mrs Osborne and Miss Allen

Sandwich making!

The children have had a wonderful last full week at school writing their information texts about countries around the world and then sharing them with the children in year 1.

They have also enjoyed designing and making a British sandwich for design technology!

Gardening in the sunshine!

What a beautiful week we have had at school! Even though it has been hot the children have shown excellent commitment to their learning. Our writing in English has been very impressive with some brilliant stories based on the Queen’s hat and a newspaper report to help find the Queen’s hat!

We have also enjoyed planting some seeds this week in Science. All the children are having a go at growing peas and recording over time what they see happening as well as understanding exactly what plants need to grow!

Staunton fun!

We had a fantastic day at Staunton. Thank you to everyone who was able to help, it is always much appreciated. The sun was shining and the children had such wonderful hands on experiences with the animals.

We are looking forward to writing about our trip on Monday.

This week the children have enjoyed using measuring jugs and water to estimate and measure capacity. We had some wonderful mathematical language come from the children during the activities.

The children have also been hooked into their new topic which is ‘Where in the World’. We have enjoyed looking at a map of the school and walking around identifying all the physical features.

Just a reminder to parents/carers who haven’t returned their child’s permission slip for Stanton if they could do so by Monday 12th June. Many thanks to the parents who have already offered to help. If anyone else would be available on the Wednesday that would be great. Please let Mrs Layton or Miss Allen know.

The children had a wonderful time writing prayers to our butterflies that they have been watching grow this half term.

After half term 2L have their music concert on Monday 5th June 2017 at 11am.

Could we ask if you bring in as many different sized bottles as you can for the children to learn about capacity after half term.

We hope you have a wonderful break. The children have worked so hard this half term especially during their SATs and we are all very proud of them.
