We have had another lovely week!
In maths, we have been using place value charts to represent numbers to 100. Show someone at home what you can do:
We then used our place value charts to write addition calculations. Have a go at the one below:
We have also be using part-whole models to partition numbers to 100 into tens and ones. Try the ones below:
In English, we finished off creating our very own pet dragons! We also gave our pet dragons a name, personality and special ability. Can you remember yours? On Thursday, something terrible happened... Mrs Taylor-Day's dragon went missing! We have been imitating Mrs Taylor-Day's 'missing poster' in hope that we might find Blaze around school! We have been learning how to write super questions. Can you write a question of your own? What do you need to remember to put at the end?
In topic, we have been looking at what like would have been like for a poor and wealthy Victorian child. Can you remember some of the toys they had? Who went to school? What did they wear? Were all children treated the same?
Well done on another super week!
- Phonics Reading Book: Some of the children have been given an additional reading book to take home. These books are in line with our Year 2 phonics work and spellings. We only have a limited amount of these books so please ensure these are back in school on the day outlined on the note that has been sent with the book.
- Highlighted Spellings: Today, we had our first spelling test. Well done to the children for practising these at home. In green, we have highlighted any spellings that the children did not get correct. This is to allow you to practise these with your children at home.
- Art t-shirt: Just a reminder, if you haven't already, to please provide your child with an old t-shirt/shirt for their art lessons. Please ensure their name is written on them.
- Reading books: These are changed on a Monday and Thursdays. Please ensure you are writing in when you have read with your child that week. We have also introduced our 'Road to Reading' in class. On a Friday, we will check if your child has read three times with an adult at home. If they have, they are given a sticker and house points. The children will move up the road to reading during the half-term, and children who reach the end of the road will receive a surprise.
