This week we had our first forest school session! We loved exploring the school’s forest and finding out about the forest school rules. We played a trust building game and got to build some dens.
In English, we have been writing our own versions of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ focusing on our capital letters and full stops. We thought carefully about the setting, which characters would live there and what their houses would be made of.
If your child wants to have a go at drawing the three little pigs please find a link here.
In maths, we have been reviewing our learning on how numbers are written as numerals and words as well as diving into the place value of two-digit numbers further. Please find here the maths worksheets with an answer page: Maths W3 Blog Answers Maths W3 Blog
In History we found out about two trailblazers: Mary Anning and Christopher Colombus. We looked at what made them significant but also began to question whether they were good or bad role models and what this meant. If your child would like some more information about either of these trailblazers, please find a link here: Christopher Colombus Mary Anning
Next week’s learning
Next week in guided reading we will be focusing on the /d/ sound. Please find a copy of the text here if you would like to read it with your child: Claude and Jedd Play
Thank you for your support in returning the phonics books. Your child will have received a new book today. Please can this be read with them and returned on Friday 6th October. We will be changing reading for pleasure books during the week when we have a library slot. Keep checking the blog for updates on reading books.
All classes have PE on Fridays. Please ensure your child has a complete kit that includes: black or navy blue shorts and jogging bottoms or leggings, a plain white t-shirt, navy blue jumper or hoodie and trainers.
We are lucky to have forest school this half term in year 2.
Robins – Monday
Swifts – Tuesday
Skylarks – Thursday
Please ensure your child has a forest school kit in on those days that includes: warm clothing, waterproofs and a change of shoes (ideally wellies or sturdy shoes).
The school provides all children in KS1 with fruit or vegetables. However, please do send your child in with an extra healthy snack if you wish but this must contain no nuts.
We are busy creating our new class family boards for the year and would love a family photo from each family to put on display. Please can you send your child in with a photograph or, alternatively email this to enquires.
