It has been an incredibly sunny and warm week and it has been good to see the children coming in prepared with their suncream, hats and water bottles. Please remember to make sure these are named.
As part of our English work we have started to look at poetry, which has involved looking at alliteration and rhyme. We began with tongue twisters, which was great fun and as a class decided that ‘red lorry, yellow lorry’ was the trickiest one to say quickly! The children had a go at writing one using a ‘beach ball’ theme.
In Maths the Year 1 children have been looking at place value to 100 and the Year 2s have started to look at time (o’clock and half past).
Our DT topic this term is ‘Puppets’ and on Wednesday we discussed the different types of puppets and looked at how some of them are made.
We had the opportunity this week to have a look at the Arts Week ‘window’ Exhibition. It was great to see what the other year groups had been doing-such wonderful creativity and the children really enjoyed looking at them. You should receive an email link today which will enable you to watch a video of the children’s work from last week. We hope you enjoy it.
Next week is sports week and the children can come to school in their PE kits every day as we will be doing something sporty each day. We will be thinking about the importance of healthy lifestyles and exercise.
The children have all got a username and password for Bug Club, which is an invaluable reading resource. Please support your child in accessing this resource and if you have any difficulties please get in touch. It would be great if your child could access Bug Club at least a couple of times a week, not only does it help your child with their reading but also the comprehension of what they are reading.
We hope you’re still getting out to add to our Street Tag score, despite the less than desirable weather! Thank you for taking part.
SPORTS WEEK: Children to come to school every day in their PE kits.
SNACKS: These should be healthy; a piece of fruit or cereal bar.
FOOTWEAR: Children should wear SCHOOL SHOES on the days that they don’t do PE, which will be three days of the week. On PE days children are allowed to wear trainers.
PE kit days: Tuesday and Thursday for Class 2
