Class Weekly Update - Summer 1, Week 5 (17.5.17)

Mr Rutter - 17 May 2018

 
Year 2 have been in the world of giants this week. We looked at the classic tale of Jack and the Beanstalk, and thought about what the giant might do next. There were some very interesting ideas – some children thought that Jack and the giant should become friends, others thought that Jack might get rid of the giant once and for all. We have really been showing off our writing skills in our work and making sure that we present our work really neatly. We have also tried to avoid boring adjectives by ‘upgrading’ them to make our writing more exciting.

The story of Jack and the Beanstalk gave us lots of opportunity to discuss the characters and similarities to other stories that we have read in class too. We thought that the old man who gave Jack his Beans was similar to the old man from James and the Giant Peach (who gave James the magic green things).

In Maths, we have really been showing off all of our learning from this year. The children have enjoyed completing challenges related to all of the different areas of Maths that we have explored since September. We have also started to look at time in depth – we started by thinking about o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. We remembered lots about our fractions work to help us. Time is one of those areas of Maths that can be easily reinforced with learning at home – ask the children to tell you the time and explain what the different hands tell you. It’s really important that we take note of where both of the hands are at different times of the day. They could take photographs of the clock at different times of the day and write the time next to it.

We have also been welcoming a special visitor to our class this week, our resident blue tit family have moved into our bird box and we are pleased to announce that they are expecting some chicks very soon. We will keep monitoring them through our birdcam. Mr Bluetit has been a great husband and has been bringing Mrs Bluetit breakfast in bed every morning.

Year 1 have been working with Miss Oates and Mrs Pawson this week, so please take a look at their newsletter to find out what adventures they have all been on.

Year 2 will be completing their SATs reading paper next week, therefore any extra practise that can be squeezed in this weekend would be really helpful. Asking lots of questions about what the children have read to you will support them with their comprehension skills. The more practise that we can do, the more fluent the children will become with their reading. This will help them find the answers they need from the text.
 
PLEASE NOTE:

  • NEW DATE FOR SPORTS DAY – THURSDAY 14th JUNE
