Class Weekly Update - 21st November

Mr Rutter - 21 Nov 2019

It’s definitely felt colder this week! That must mean we are getting closer and closer to that time of year!

This week the children have been planning and preparing to write about another moon-based character – ‘the Baboon on the Moon’. We spotted lots of similarities to the Man on the Moon from last week, and several important differences. On Friday we are going to write our own ‘Baboon on the Moon’ stories using all of our ideas. When we were retelling the story from a video clip, we noticed that this story makes us feel sad, so we will need to think about this when we are writing our own versions.

In Maths, Year 1 have been focusing on using subtraction. We have explored it in lots of ways, using different resources and using our reasoning skills to solve problems and explain our knowledge. Year 2 have been focusing on adding and subtracting tens from numbers up to 100. We have noticed that the ones always stay the same, but the tens change. Our next step is looking at fact families and related facts (i.e.  8-2=6, 8-6=2, 2+6=8, 6+2=8). Knowing our basic number bonds up to ten will help us with our learning next week.

In our science work, we have continued looking at materials by testing how absorbent different materials are: We used fair testing to find out that plastic and tinfoil are least absorbent, but cleaning cloths and felt are much more absorbent.

Our topic journey this week looked at the work of Andy Warhol. We found out a bit about his life and what ‘Pop Art’ is. Next week we will be making some of our own Pop Art after learning more about this style.


Please try to read as much as possible – we have won the reading challenge 3 times! Let’s keep going!

We will not be doing Eco School this term – please can children come to school in their uniform every day.

PE kit – please ensure that your child has a full PE kit in school every day. This includes a plain white t-shirt (no collar/buttons), black/navy shorts, socks, and pumps (for indoor PE).

Just a note about jewellery and earrings in P.E-  the new policy from North Yorkshire County Council states that all jewellery and earrings should be removed. Unfortunately teachers and teaching assistants are not permitted to assist with this for health and safety reasons. Therefore, if your child wears earrings they should not wear them on P.E days or be taught how to remove them themselves. We thank you for your understanding and co-operation in this health and safety matter.

12th December - Nativity 
13th December- Christmas crafts
