Week Beginning 28th November 2016

Nativity preparations are well under way. I will send a letter out by email this week about the Y2 part.

Thank you to everyone who shared examples of Takeaway homework last week or showed us their plans.

I will be out of school this week all day Wednesday and on Friday afternoon.

In English we are continuing to use the text ‘The Rainbow Bird’. This is an Aboriginal dreamtime folk tale again about Fire.  In our grammar work we are focusing on the use of coordination, using the conjunctions of and, but, or. Our creative work will focus around character descriptions.

In Mathematics we are moving onto Measurement. In Y2 pupils are taught

  • choose and use appropriate standard units to estimate and measure length/height in any direction (m/cm); mass (kg/g); temperature (°C); capacity (litres/ml) to the nearest appropriate unit, using rulers, scales, thermometers and measuring vessels
  • compare and order lengths, mass, volume/capacity and record the results using >, < and =

Our handwriting focus is the tall group of letters – b d f h k l t   

In phonics/spelling the focus is on the graphemes le used at the end of a word following a consonant. We will also be looking at contractions e.g. can’t didn’t hasn’t etc.  We continue in all lessons to develop and reinforce the use of different spelling strategies.

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.

In Science we are continuing to look at Materials. We will be testing the strength of bags made out of different materials. 

Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday.

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 read to you or to themselves at home.
