Class 2 will be working on their x10 tables this week, along with word problems involving x2 and x5 tables. Pupils are growing in confidence when reciting their times tables and using their grouping method.
In writing, we have started our innovation of our ‘defeating the baddie’ story. The pupils have come up with some great ideas for their new stories and are using adjectives in patterns of 3 along with similes and alliteration.
In phonics, we are focusing on suffixes and why we double the consonant on the end of some words or why we drop an ‘e’. We are also working on the spelling of our common exception words.
In our topic, we will be learning about Remembrance Day and why it is important to remember. In Science, we will be working on identifying every day materials and in Art we will be creating self portraits. We will also begin our music unit for this term.
Later in the week, the pupils will be told their parts in the nativity. I have asked everyone what they would like to be and we will be doing some little auditions. I have explained to the class not to be disappointed if they don’t get a certain role. Also, if you have a small sweeping brush at home (preferably wooden) could class 2 borrow it for the opening scene? Let me know at the end of the day if you have.
Below are some pictures of when Ava’s Dad came to visit last term and showed us some very interesting maps and headphones while telling us all about air traffic control. The pupils were very excited!
