Week Beginning 29th January 2018

What an exciting weekend in Nantwich with the Battle of Nantwich and The Sealed Knot. I can’t quite believe we are half way through the term and that by the end of the week we will be in February. How lovely that it is becoming lighter in the afternoons much later.

In English this week we will be continuing to use the traditional tale of Goldilocks to write character descriptions before moving onto our new text Goldilocks and The One Bear.

As Mathematicians we are moving onto Multiplication and Division. 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 Designers we are continuing to make our own small world role-play of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. As Scientists we will start to think about 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 following letters – tall group of letters l t d h b l k y

In phonics/spelling the focus is on /iː/ sound spelt ‘ey’ and Homophones and near homophones We are also continuing to reinforce Long Vowel words, learning to use a GPC and spelling tricky words.

In RE our unit of work is on the Christian Concept: Kingdom of God with the theme of Jesus’ Teaching. The key question will be Why did Jesus teach his disciples to pray the Lord’s Prayer; ‘Your Kingdom Come?’

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)
