Reading for at least 10 minutes each day, 5 times per week, will also be expected as part of your child's homework. It is important to support your child with daily reading as this has a huge impact on their understanding, imagination, creativity and learning across all subjects. Please check Seesaw to  see how to fill out your child's Reading Record. 

Thank you for your continued support.

Week beginning: 5.12.22

 

This week in History we have been learning about Samuel Pepys. We will use this information to write some sentences in our English this week. 
 

In Maths we have been learning about shapes. 
 

We are all very excited to perform our Nativity in front of the parents this week! 

Week beginning 21st November 2022

 

This week our Nativity rehearsals are in full swing! A letter will be sent home next week with details about what your child will need to wear for the performance so please keep an eye out for this and ask us if you have any questions! 

 

In English this week we have been looking at how to write instructions with a focus on Imperative (bossy) Verbs and Adverbs. We will be using these skills next week to write instructions for the robot from our Power of Reading book. 

 

In RE this week we have been thinking about how to look after our planet and the impact of Fossil fuels. We are making some art work based on this for La Dauto Si. 

 

In Maths we have been adding and subtracting by exchanging ten and comparing number sentences. 

 

In History we continue to learn about the Great Fire of London and in Science we are planning our investigation about the most suitable material to use to make a house. 

 

 

 

Our weekly learning focus

W/b 14th November 2022

 

In Year 2 this week we have been reading the book 'The Robot and the Bluebird'. We have been finding new and interesting adjectives to describe how the robot feels and will be using these later on in our writing. 

 

In Maths we have been using base 10 to add two 2 digit numbers. We are learning that we can exchange 10 ones for 1 ten. 

 

During our Science lessons we have been planning our investigation about materials. As our History focus is the Great Fire of London, we are interested in why the houses burnt down. This led us to inquire 'What material would be most suitable to make a house?' We will be testing different materials to see if they are: flammable, windproof, waterproof and stable as these are the qualities a house needs to be safe and secure. 

 

Nativity practice is now in full swing and we are beginning to remember our lines without looking! Parents please continue to help us practise these at home!

 

Thankyou
