Spring     – Home learning project.

Week beginning: 5/2/18

Well done to our pupil of the week, who has shown great perseverance with his writing.

What a wonderful week we have had! We really enjoyed our trip to the bird and reptile centre. The children learnt a lot and represented the Priory really well.

We have had a lot of fun with our focus book. Here comes the crocodile! We have written reports about animals escaping from the book into the classroom.

As part of our animal topic, we looked at how humans and other animals stay healthy. We discussed the importance of a balanced diet. The children looked at, tried and compared smoothies that we can buy in shops against a design criteria. We then made our very own smoothies. Some were delicious….some not so delicious!

In Maths we have been learning all about money adding money and finding change.

Have a lovely half term!

Week beginning: 29/1/18

Well done to our pupil of the week who was chosen for her wonderful version of the story: The Lion Inside. Her story was actually called the Owl inside.

This week we have continued to look at money and comparing different amounts. We have been looking at pounds including notes and coins.

In writing we have begun to focus on a new book. Here comes the crocodile! This is a great story and it has sparked our imaginations. We are going to use is to help us with writing a newspaper report about a animals and crocodiles escaping from the book into our classroom.

In Science/Design technology, we have continued our theme of healthy eating and getting a balanced diet. We have analysed and looked at some other smoothies using a design criteria. We soon realised that looks were not everything! Price, healthiness and taste are important too!

We have continued developing on our physical literacy when learning golf and dance.

I have now tested all year 2 words from their white home reading records. I will be sending home a list of words your child still can not spell for you to continue to practise at home.

Please continue visiting MyMaths. It is a great website to increase mental maths skills.

Have a fun weekend!

Week beginning: 26.1.18

Well done to our pupil of the week who was chosen for always persevering in everything he does.

In maths we have begun to look at measure. We are starting off looking at money. it would be great if you could practise looking at money at home and maybe allowing your child to purchase things for you.

In writing we have completed our own versions of the Lion inside. The children used some amazing adjectives.

Have a lovely weekend!

Mrs Miller.
