As promised here are some photos of the ukulele concert that the children performed to parents in Giraffe class on Monday. It was wonderful! Well done children I was very proud. I am sure Elephant class are looking forward to their turn.
Today we made our superhero cars. Some of which were even complete with jet packs!
Have a lovely restful half term everyone. We will post the new home learning pyramid soon. In the meantime we are learning about saints in school so could you find out about a saint for home learning? Maybe a mini project? A prayer? A poster?
We look forward to hearing about the saints that your children find out about!
Best wishes for a happy holiday!
Mrs. Luter and Miss Allen
We have been learning about how to pray the Rosary. This afternoon we all prayed part of the rosary and found out about all the different prayers that we can pray using the Rosary.
In maths we have been learning how to find out half of and double of numbers. We have used the dienes to help us. We can find half of the tens number and then the units. We have then used this to help us to solve problems.
In literacy this week we have been writing our superhero stories. Children tell your mum and dad what happens in your story! We have been using a variety of punctuation, descriptive language and new vocabulary. We have also been applying a variety of sentence types that we have been finding out about.
Look out for letters and sounds home learning to be sent home tomorrow. We look forward to sharing home learning for the last time this half term tomorrow. Next half term we will be launching a new topic which we will contact you about soon.
If any of you are able to walk to Waterlooville with us in the first week back please contact us.
We have thoroughly enjoyed sharing the children’s bird art this week there have been some very artistic creations. They have all fluttered off to be displayed outside Mrs. Bowen’s office. The children have really been inspired by each other and Phoebe has now even written her own book about birds. She had some grumpy birds who ate some fish… this reminded me to tell the children about the night I had had with my cat! Children tell your mums and dads about my naughty cat!
On Wednesday 21st we will be having a DT day and so we need your boxes in to make our Superhero cars with before then please.
Children will be bringing home the phonics that we have been working on during the week every Friday. Please look for the sounds in books and encourage children to identify alternative spellings. For example ay, ea, a-e, a ai, eigh and ey all make the same sound! This has been quite tricky for the children as you can imagine so the more practise they get the better.
Thank you again for all your support.
Giraffe class look forward to seeing you all at their ukulele concert on Monday 19th October at 11.15 in Giraffe class.
Home learning has got off to a great start in year 2. Children really took on the challenge of creating some bird art we have had some wonderful designs which will be displayed around the school soon. (Closing date 16th October 2015.) We have also had a great response to the RE home learning and children have created some very informative posters about how to look after God’s creation.
This week children could continue to find out about their learning heroes. Or they could begin to think about their own ambitions in life and how they will achieve them. We look forward to hearing all about it!
Don’t forget to continue reading every night. Also practise number bonds and the 10, then 2, then 5 times tables.
Below is a picture of some of our wonderful home learning on display in the school library.
