Please look through the blog post with your child so that they can tell you all about their learning activities in school this week.

We would welcome donations of  broadsheet newspapers which we could use to protect our new painting easel, some glass jars, and also some boxes of tissues to help keep us healthy and germ free. Many thanks.

P2 play – preparations are well underway. information re costume help will be published early next week. Some pupils have brought copies of their play script home. Thank you for your support in helping them to learn to speak their lines clearly and confidently. Other pupils are learning their lines in school.

Independent learning

Literacy

Please use our spelling city homework page to access tricky word blocks and lists of spelling patterns to practise at home. A little often is really beneficial and we appreciate your support.

  • We enjoyed World Book day and had a visit from an author who told us about her job and inspired us to become writers and never to give up  even when it is tricky.
  • We have been writing lists using bullet points. We started with lists of boys’ names inspired by the story of Rumplestiltskin.
  • We have been doing a variety of reading skills in class..
  • We have been talking,  listening and giving opinions and reasons.
  • We have been practising our hand writing, both cursive and non cursive.

Numeracy and Maths

  • We have been exploring very large numbers.
  • We have been focusing on number patterns to 100  and beyond) focusing on ten more, ten less, and also identifying the pattern made when counting in 11s
  • We have been continuing to learn about money, recognising, ordering, sorting and counting coins, and challenging ourselves to count large amounts.

Here are two games that focus on ordering, sorting and counting money:

Other Areas

  • We were excited to receive some new furniture for the classroom and we helped Mrs Cross to redesign our learning space by drawing maps.
  • We have been learning about the phases of the moon, using vocabulary such as waxing, waning, crescent and gibbous.
  • Developing fine motor control through a range of activities to promote pencil control.
  • We continue to practise our P2 show, its getting very exciting.

Things to do at home

Look into the night sky for the moon, and if you can see it, describe what you see. Do you think it is waxing or waning, gibbous or crescent?  🌙

Pick a random two digit number , then try to answer some of these questions. What is one more/one less/ten more/ ten less?  If you feel confident try choosing a three digit number and add the question 100 more/100 less .

try counting in 11s and describing the pattern it makes. What happens to the pattern when you go beyond 100?
