Home learning

Wk beginning: 9/10/17

Well done to our pupil of the week. She was chosen for her resilience in her learning.

This week, we have been learning about place value on a number line and 3d shapes. In writing we have been reading the story about The Tunnel by Anthony Browne. The children listened and responding to each others ideas about Rose’s decision to go into the tunnel. Next week we will be writing about what happens next once she goes into the tunnel (The story problem).

Above I have attached home learning ideas. The due date for home learning is the 6th November.  Children are being tested on mental maths and spellings in the form of a dictation and timetable tests. So please keep practising these at home. Spelling are in the front of the reading journals or a mixed 1 and 2 list are below.

Kind regards

Well done to our pupil of the week. She was chosen for her resilience and hard work in her maths when learning about shapes.

This week in maths we have been learning about halving, doubling and shapes and in writing we have been writing letters to Sally MacArthur to advise her what material would be best for her to use, if she was to build a new boat.

We have again been exploring different ways we can dance and using language such as canon, unison, levels and speed to help to give each other positive and helpful feedback.

In Athletics we learnt how to do long jump and run over hurdles.

In RE we acted out the story Jonah and the whale. We discussed what we could learn about God from the story.

RE Class 2 – Autumn 1

GOD: What do Christians believe God is like?

Your child will be learning to:

  • Tell the key points of the story of Jonah from the Bible and recognise a link with the concept of God.
  • Give clear, simple accounts of what the text means to Christians.
  • Give examples of ways in which Christians use the story of Jonah to guide their beliefs about God, e.g. seeing God as Lord i.e. in control of events and being fair. God wants to save the people of Nineveh.
  • Give examples of how Christians put their beliefs into practice in worship e.g. using the story in church, in art.
  • Think, talk and ask questions about whether they can learn anything from the story for themselves, exploring different ideas.

Well done to our Pupil of the week, he received this for his wonderful writing. He listened carefully to the instructions and was able to highlight of most of his success criterion.

We have had a wonderful week this week. In maths we have been taking away on a number line and In writing we have been using commas in a list and looking at letter writing.

On Friday we had a great day, we researched, planned and designed boats using our chosen materials. We had to stick to strict rules. This meant measuring carefully using a ruler and a timer. Once all boats were completed, we tested them in water to see which was the best materials used.

In PE we have been learning about unison, canon and levels. We created sequences of movement to the story penguin small. In athletics we have been practising our throwing using a javelin.
