Week Beginning  12th November 2018

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Remembrance Service on Friday. If you weren’t able to make it we will be holding another service on the day of our exhibition Friday 30thNovember.

I attended the outdoor service at the cenotaph in Nantwich on Sunday morning. It was again another moving experience especially when all the names of men killed were read out.

Y2 will be visiting Kelsall Methodist Chapel on Wednesday 5th December. A letter was sent out last week. Please could you return your payment and permission asap.

In English we are continuing to use Walter Tull’s Scrapbook as part of our We Will Remember project. Last week we also wrote poems about Remembrance Poppies, which this week we will be presenting ready for one of our exhibition displays.

In Mathematics we are still focusing on Subtraction. In Y2 children are expected to 

  • solve problems with addition and subtraction: 
    • using concrete objects and pictorial representations, including those involving numbers, quantities and measures 
    • applying their increasing knowledge of mental and written methods 
  • recall and use addition and subtraction facts to 20 fluently, and derive and use related facts up to 100 
  • add and subtract numbers using concrete objects, pictorial representations, and mentally, including: 
    • two-digit number and ones 
    • two-digit number and tens 
    • two two-digit numbers 
    • adding three one-digit numbers
  • show that addition of two numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and subtraction of one number from another cannot 
  • recognise and use the inverse relationship between addition and subtraction and use this to check calculations and solve missing number problems. 

 As part of our daily maths fluency sessions we learn times tables. We love using Numberjacks Times Tables Songs

In REour unit of work is called Incarnation. The key question is What does the visit of the magi tell Christians about Jesus? The children will learn What the visit of the magi tells Christians about Jesus. Why Jesus is considered a king by Christians.

Ourhandwritingfocus is on the following letters – the r group of letters r n m b p k 

Inphonics/spellingthe focus is Homophones, using a GPC (grapheme phoneme correspondence) chart and other strategies for learning tricky words. We are also revising the long vowel phonemes ‘er’ and learning the different graphemes that can be used to make this sound.

Y2 PEdays are Thursday and Friday mornings with Mr Dooley.

Y2 Reading Books
Y2 are welcome to change their reading book daily but I would ask that you sign the reading record book when they have completed a book at home with you. 

Miss Porter will check reading books on a Monday and I will do so on a Friday.

Miss Porter and I will each half term continue to assess all the children’s reading using our benchmarking system. Please bear with us as it does take time but is a thorough assessment of the level the children are reading at. We will also check phonic and word recognition skills on a regular basis.

There is no new takeaway homework this half term.  If you want you can pick another activity from the list. Please continue learning spellings from the list given at the start of term and learning times tables.
