 Week Beginning 24thSeptember 2018

Thank you to everyone who came to Meet The Teacher last week. The presentation is available on the class webpage along with other documents mentioned or referred to at the meeting.

There is a unnamed blazer in the classroom. If it belongs to you please let me know.

In Englishwe are continuing to use the text Wilfred Gordon McDonald Partridge. This week we will be suing it to think about our memories.

You can find out more about the author here.  https://memfox.com

In Mathematicsthe focus for the next few weeks is Place Value. In Y2 children are expected to 

  • count in steps of 2, 3, and 5 from 0, and in tens from any number, forward and backward 
  • recognise the place value of each digit in a two-digit number (tens, ones) 
  • identify, represent and estimate numbers using different representations, including the number line 
  • compare and order numbers from 0 up to 100; use <, > and = signs 
  • read and write numbers to at least 100 in numerals and in words 
  • use place value and number facts to solve problems. 

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

Here is another song for the ten times table recommended by Y3 


This week we are focusing on the five times table.

Our handwritingfocus is on the following letters – r group of letters r n m h b p 

Inphonics/spellingthe focus is Homophones, using a GPC (grapheme phoneme correspondence) chart and other strategies for learning tricky words. We are also revising long vowel phonemes.

In RE our unit of work is called Good News. The key questions of the unit are - How does the bible show Jesus living his life as good news to people? How do you know when you feel better? On the outside? On the inside.

Y2 PE days 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.

Takeaway homework sharing day is Wednesday 24th October. Remember to try and bring in a photo of your 101 Challenges for Miss Cork’s corridor display. Tweet to @bunburyace using #bunburys101challenges.
