This week in maths we have been learning about mass, and measuring in g and kg. We have also worked on our journalling skills and problem solving. On Friday, there will be a times tables test on the 3 and 5 division times tables.
In writing, we have been working on using inverted commas and homophones in our work. We have started our innovation on ‘The Papaya That Spoke’ and will be working on our ‘Think it, say it, write it’ to gather our ideas together.
In our topic ‘Explorers’ we learned about Ibn Battuta and how exploring many years ago was very different to modern times. In science, we will be carrying out a comparative test on growth enquiry to describe how humans change as they get older. In our phonics we have been working on our sounds with alternative spellings as well as when ‘s’ or ‘es’ is added to root words to make a plural. There will also be a dictation on Friday based on this weeks spellings.
Happy New Year everyone, I hope you’ve had a lovely break!
This week in class 2 we have been working on our word problems involving length. The children have been using bar modelling to help them reach the answer and to understand what operation to use. I will send out some homework on this next week.
In writing we have started work on the story ‘The Papaya That Spoke’. We have worked on using question marks to ask the Papaya questions and will also be exploring the key features of the text.
In science we learned about how animals grow and in our new topic ‘Explorers’ we will be finding out about what makes a significant person and the things they have done. In PHSE, we will be working on the first lesson of our unit ‘Dreams and Goals’ and discussing all the things we have achieved so far and what we would like to achieve in the future.
Please keep an eye out for class 2’s curriculum letter which will detail what will be covered this term.
Firstly well done to the children for their brilliant performance on Tuesday night-they were excellent! 🙂
Yesterday we had our Christmas party in the afternoon, we played party games and finished up with a flossing competition where the children tried to teach the adults to floss (we still need some practice!) Have a look at some of the pictures…
Have a lovely Christmas everyone!
We’ve had another busy week in class 2! In maths, we have been working on comparing length in cm and m. We also will be working on word problems based on length, where we will have to find how much longer or shorter objects are than the other. There will be no maths homework this week, as we have finished up homework for this term but I have sent home our maths booklets we have worked on during core skills time. There will be a times table test tomorrow afternoon on x5 and the 5 division tables.
In writing, we completed our hot task on instructions. The children did a really good job and put a lot of effort in. So well done everyone! We will be moving on to Christmas poetry next week.
In RE, we will be working on our Incarnation unit and will focus on the Christmas story. We will also be working on our Nativity play which we will be performing in the church next Tuesday evening!
On the evening, Class 2 will need to be there for 5.45pm to get changed into their costumes (it might be an idea to get your child to wear a neutral coloured top to the church as some of the costumes will be put on over this-any questions just ask me at the end of the day). Please arrive via the rear car park of the Priory and enter through the Cloister’s door. I will be there to meet you and tick your name of the register. Also please see me before you take your child home so that they can be marked off the list again
Below is a class list of names for Christmas cards:
We’ve had a busy week so far in class 2.
In maths, we have started our unit on length and will be measuring in m and cm, along with comparing different lengths during the week. We will be having a times tables test on Friday where we will focus again on x3 and 3 division times tables.
In writing, we will be finishing our innovation on our instructions and hopefully will be starting our hot task towards the end of the week. In our spelling and phonics this week, we have also been working on suffixes and homophones (their, there and they’re). Remember to learn your spellings for our dictation.
In science, we will be creating a fact file on the creator John McAdam and in our history topic we will be writing a recount of what happened in the Gunpowder Plot. We have also been practicing our songs and parts for the nativity which is coming up!
Here are some pictures from our role play lesson on the Gunpowder Plot last week…
