Week Beginning 11th March 2018

How the weeks are whizzing by! But at least the nights are much lighter now and spring flowers are appearing.

In English we are continuing with our text ‘Goldilocks and The One Bear.’ Last week we wrote about Bear’s Dream. This week we are applying the same model to write about our own dream focusing on changing the setting.

As Mathematicians we are continuing with division, dividing by 2, 5, and 10 using division and multiplication facts. We will also be looking problem solving with multiplication and division this week. At Y2 pupils are expected to

  • recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables, including recognising odd and even numbers
  • calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division within the multiplication tables and write them using the multiplication (.), division (÷) and equals (=) signs
  • show that multiplication of two numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and division of one number by another cannot
  • solve problems involving multiplication and division, using materials, arrays, repeated addition, mental

Don’t forget this resource too to help with learning number facts/timetables etc.

As Scientists we will are continuing to investigate how humans and other animals are born, grow and change, and what we need to survive and be health.

Our handwriting focus is on the l group of letters – l t I j u y

In phonics/spelling the focus is on learning how words can be broken into syllables. This can help to build and spell more complicated words. We are also continuing to reinforce Long Vowel words, learning to use a GPC and spelling tricky words.

In RE our unit of work continues to be the Christian Concept: Forgiveness, prayer and sin. The key question is How does prayer help Christians start again?

Reading Books
The children are welcome to change their reading book as often as they like but I would ask that you sign the reading record book when they have completed a book at home with you.

Miss Porter and I each half term will continue to assess all the children’s reading again 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.

Our PE days are Monday am (Ms Charlesworth) and Wednesday am (Sports’ Coaches)
