Our new Class 2- What a transformation! Before and after photos.

 

 

Happy new year!

I hope you have all had a lovely break and are ready to see what 2023 has in store.We have been busy organising your new classroom in the village hall and we can't wait for you to come and see it. I have attached our Spring Term 1 overview so you can take a look at what we will be learning this term. 

 

Online Learning - 3rd January 2023

Below I have attached some activities that I would like the children to do on their online learning day (I have provided activities that also require no printing). Please send your child into school with this work (named please) on the 4th January so we can discuss and review their work before filing it.

 

Year 1 

Year 2

Maths - watch the video on counting within 20 (the children will be familiar with this).

I have provided you with the next worksheet in our white rose scheme of learning, ‘counting within 20’. If you are unable to print the worksheet, please work with your child asking them to find 12 teddies, 15 marbles etc. They can then draw these onto some paper and write the number next to. I have also attached an extension activity for anyone who wants an extra challenge!

Maths - watch the video on recognising equal groups (the children will be familiar with this). There are a couple of worksheet questions on the video for your child to confirm their understanding.

Next complete the worksheet ‘recognise equal groups’. I have also attached an extension activity for anyone who wants an extra challenge! If you do not have access to a printer, please just write the answers on a piece of paper.

Phonics – look back in spelling books and retry spelling any that need improvements from spelling test. Also, recap some common exception words for Year 1.

Please ensure your child is reminded of the following: 

 

  • Finger spaces 
  • Capital letter at the start of the sentence and for people’s names 
  • Full stops 
  • Letters on the line

topic ‘Food and Celebrations Around the World’. Before the Christmas break, we had a look at how different countries celebrate Christmas. I would like you to choose a country to research and find out the different foods they eat. Please write the name of your country on a piece of paper, then label and draw a picture of the food eaten at Christmas.

I hope everyone is enjoying their half term holiday and finding the time to relax a bit. Below are some photos from our last week at school. The children enjoyed making 'Conker comets' and 'Nature wands' at forest school. They also were amazed with our science experiment, which gave them a hands on experience of the benefits of having an extra layer of fat (blubber), if you are an animal that lives in a cold polar region. They couldn't believe how much warmer their hand was when protected with an extra layer of fat. 

 

The class has also been sharing a special book called 'The Wolf and the Baby Dragon'. It's a great book for anyone who is worried or just wants to find a happy place. We have spent time laying down and thinking of the things that the spider's magical spell suggests.  If you want to hear it the link is below.

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

I have such keen mathematicians in my class that some of them have asked for extra homework! We have all been working on our 2 times tables over the last couple of weeks, so I thought that would be a good place to start. This is not a compulsory piece of work, but I have attached a worksheet of the 2 times tables and a copy of the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables if your child wants to do it. Alternatively, your child could practise the 2 times table using the ‘Hit The Button’ game.The link is below. Have a great weekend.

Maths

We have had a great week completing our mental health awareness activities and loved our walk up the hill today. The Year 1's have been busy learning their mathematical  symbols for equal to, less than and more than. The Year 2's have been busy learning different ways of partitioning numbers. We have all finished our own stories based on the structure of the 'Three Billy Goats Gruff'. I'm sure they would like to tell you all about their own characters and story line.

Wow, another week over. The class has been very busy this week. We have refreshed our memory on the 'Three Billy Goats Gruff' story and changed it to a class story about a 'Little Cow'. We have been explorers at forest school, making food and shelters for our journey. We have discovered more about Edward Wilson and logged in independently to our Purple Mash accounts. Please take a look at some of the photos from this week.

We have had a great couple of weeks learning about William Morris (in Art) and Edwards Wilson (in History).

We have also enjoyed re-enacting 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff' story in preparation for writing our own versions.

 

This weeks spellings will be moved to Monday 19th September. They are based on the sound of the week e.g. 'ay' or for year 2 the spelling rules. The children will also have a few common exception words to learn.

Autumn Term 1 Overview

Welcome to Class Two!

 

We have had a great start to the new term and the children are settling in well. On Friday your child was sent home with their new reading books. We spent some time last week assessing the children and setting an appropriate level. If you want to discuss the level your child is on please email me and arrange a convenient time to discuss this. If you have any questions or concerns please also feel free to email me or catch me for a chat after school. 

Your child will be sent home with spellings to practise in a small spellings book. Please send this spelling book back into school every day along with your child's reading books and reading record. We will start doing spelling test on Tuesday 20th September, however normally tests will be on a Monday. 

Last week we started our work in English based around the story book "Ponko and the South Pole". This week we will continue with this theme. In Maths we are learning about place value and in Science we are talking about living creatures. I've uploaded some photos of what we have been up to this week.

 

Looking forward to another great week with Class Two!
