Welcome to Class 2
We are writing stories in class based on The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson.
I love Julia Donaldson's rhyming stories and when I was young I liked Shirley Hughes' books.
Do you have a favourite author? Who is it? Do you have a favourite book that they wrote? Have you read any other books by this author?
There are some addition activities set on Mathletics this week.
Half term homework - POETRY COMPETITION - Please see letter above. Children may write their poem in their homework books.
There will be some addition activities set on Mathletics this week. They will be assigned on Monday 15th.
Please rehearse your lines for our poem for the Harvest Festival on Monday. If your child has lost their lines I have put the poem as an attachment.
We are learning about numbers and are keen that children can count confidently forward and backwards. Year 1 are working up to 20 to start and Year 2 up to 100. Please count the stairs as you are walking up and down them. Count pennies or pieces of Lego into a pot and then count down as you take them out.
You may also have a go at Hit the Button - 2xtable
This term we have writing sentences that have capital letters, full stops and we must make sure they make sense! Please draw a picture of you and your family and tell me about them. Who is in your family? What do you like to do? It would be brilliant to see you writing in sentences, even with some help from someone at home. Due in by: 1/1/2018
Please logon to Mathletics and complete your assigned activities.
Homework will be issued on a Monday and is due in the following Monday.
Your child has been issued with a homework book - this will be for all English activities that are set. Maths activities will be completed using matheltics.
Please read every night with your child.
Spellings will be issued on a Monday and tested on a Friday. Within the spellings there will be a focus on one or two sounds a week along with tricky words.
Your child should have a username and password for the mathletics site. A wonderful resource funded by our generous PTA. If not, please do ask for this.
Go to the website www.mathletics.com (link below). Click on 'sign in here' pop your given user name and password in.
On the site:
Children will be set activities for homework and they will not be able to access anything else until they have completed this. If they can not complete this at home then I will ask them to do this during lunchtime at school. Once they have completed their homework activities they can games, which focus on each strand of maths that they are taught in school.
We are always delighted to welcome volunteers into school, if you would like to join us to help with reading, a club or creative curriculum then please do get in touch.
Finally, you are welcome to come into Class 2 on Friday mornings until 9.00am to look at the displays and discuss your child’s work with them.
