Week Beginning 30th January 2017

In English this week we are continuing our unit of work based around Jack and The Beanstalk and a modern version. We will edit some of last week’s work. We will be learning to use commas in sentences and writing diaries in character using the first person. In all these activities we will be writing and focusing on sentence types, consistent use of punctuation and presentation skills.

In Mathematics we just have some work to finish on change and then we are moving onto Number: fractions. At Y2 pupils are taught to

  • Recognise, find, name and write fractions 1/3, 1/4, 2/4 and 3/4 of a length, shape, set of objects or quantity.
  • Write simple fractions for example, 1/2 of 6 = 3
  • Recognise the equivalence of 2/4 and 1/2.

Theme
We will continue with work on the theme “What Wonderful World” looking at the world from a geographical perspective. In art we will finish our at city landscapes.

In phonics/spelling the focus adding suffixes to words of one syllable ending in a single consonant after a single vowel e.g. sad sadder saddest, hop hopped hopping We continue in all lessons to develop and reinforce the use of different spelling strategies.

Our handwriting focus is on the following letters – tall letters d h b l k t

In RE we continue with the 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?’

Our PE days are Monday (first lesson) and Wednesday (last lesson).

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.
We have a reading session every day where the children take part in a variety of reading activities one of which includes Guided Reading with me. Here we focus on using the skills needed to decode words as well as developing comprehension skills.
