Monmouth and Blaise
A note from Mrs Clarkson and Miss Silman ....
Thank you all who worked hard to complete the homework! Please try to get into a habit of practising them each day. It really makes a difference. Thank you!
Thank you to all of you who were able to attend Back to School Night, it was great to see you! We are sending home a summary for your information. We would also like to invite all parents and carers to come in for a reading session every Friday morning from 8.40 to 8.55 am. This is a really lovely opportunity to share a book with your child.
Homework books are coming home today - please get busy learning spellings and read, read, reading!
Welcome back! We hope you had a lovely summer. If you have any queries or concerns please come and talk to us; we look forward to meeting with you. Next Wednesday, 13 September, is Back to School Night. Please come along to your child's classroom to learn more about the coming year.
Blaise Class will usually have PE on Mondays and Thursdays.
Monmouth Class will usually have PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays
Please make sure your child has their full PE kit in school every day - including trainers (not daps). Please check footwear too as some children have had a growth spurt over the summer!
Have a lovely weekend!
Year 2's Blog
What a busy week it has been! We have been writing using our sounds and using many adjectives in our stories of 'The Tiger Child' which explains how tigers turned into cats. In maths we have been adding two digit numbers and using dienes to find out the answers.
This week we have been learning folk tales from Africa and Australia. Blaise have learned the story of the Tortoise’s dream and Monmouth have learned the story of Tiddalik the very thirsty frog. We have done some beautiful painting of tortoises, frogs and the magical Omumbo Rombonga tree which can only be found if you don’t look round, slip in mud, fall into a pool or trip over an ant’s nest! In maths we have been learning all about number and place value, making a massive numberline to 100 complete with dienes!
This week we have been getting used to our new classroom. Blaise Class has learned to line up within three seconds (truly amazing!) and we have been doing times table aerobics each day. Blaise and Monmouth have all been learning how to group objects into tens and make numbers. We are trying really hard with our handwriting to form each letter correctly and put them on the line - no spacemen allowed! We have also got our new reading books and are looking forward to reading lots of new books!
