Dear Parents,  

We hope you are all well.

In English the children have been writing letters and instructions about George’s Marvellous Medicine. Next week we are writing character descriptions.  

In Maths, we have learnt bout money. Next week we will learn about giving change before moving on to shape.    

In Science we learnt about Margaret E Knight and made paper bags. Next week we will learn about  Charles Macintosh.

In History we learnt about John McAdam , next week we will be learning about Marion Donovan.

 

Homework:

Phonics- If you would like to support your child further in their phonics knowledge the link will take you to a video showing the pure pronunciation of phonemes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BqhXUW_v-1s

Please continue to practice sounding out and blending words at home.

Maths work at home - 

Please can we ask that you practise writing and solving problems using the 2,5 and 10 times tables, writing numbers the correct way and different ways to represent them. As well as recapping adding and subtracting to 100 with crossing the tens. Please also practice money, calculating amounts and giving change.

Spellings- Please work with your child and help them to learn the year 2 common exception words and practice spellings at home.

Reading: 

Please continue to read with your child as much as possible, please ensure your child’s yellow reading record book is brought into school each day in their home learning folder. Please make use of our online resource bug club, if you need your child’s log in details please contact/ ask your child’s teacher.

 

Reminders:

  • Dance/PE days: VIOLET class – Wednesdays & Mondays. GREEN  & TURQOUISE Class – Mondays & Fridays.

Children are welcome to bring in an old pair of trainers to leave in school incase of wet weather and for the daily mile.

  • Please can all children remove earrings before dance and PE.
  • Please could all water bottles, snack pots and jumpers/cardigans brought into school be NAMED, we are finding lots of items that have no names and children are unable to identify them.   
  • In DT we will be beginning a unit of work to create Ferris Wheels, please can you begin to collect items at home that children would like to build their wheel from. They will need a thicke/sturdy box for their base, a thinner box for the frame, they can bring in any lollipop sticks/pipe cleaners/ribbon/ cotton bubs or straws to help build it. To create the pods around it they could bring in small yoghurt pots, or the plastic tray from mince pics/cupcakes or chocolates etc We have found that  egg boxes can be quite difficult to cut and tend to break apart when we build.
  • As the weather is turning please ensure your child brings a coat to school and they are welcome to wear extra layers etc
  • After the half term each class will be visited by Surrey fire & rescue service who will talk to each class about fire safety. There is not cost for this workshop.  If you have any questions regarding this please do speak to your child’s class teacher.
  • As per our home learning policy each class has set up a Showbie classroom for children to join if a bubble closure happens.
