Weekly Review 26.3.21
What a brilliant week we have had. The children have been making real efforts to be kind and considerate to each other and have been nominating one another for acts of kindness and they also made suggestions for the certificates this week.
In PE the children worked collaboratively to assemble and disassemble the nets and I am so proud of how well they managed this. Next week we’ll see if we can be even more efficient.
In maths we have been investigating fractions further, finding 1/2, 1/4 and 1/3 of different amounts. This is a really tricky concept for the children to grasp and they have been trying really hard. We have been talking about the events of Holy Week and the Easter story in our assemblies and RE lessons and reflecting on our own ideas about sacrifice and salvation.
As the children are doing so well with their reading we have started doing whole class reading lessons. Last week we read extracts from Paddington and this week we have been reading from the classic, My naughty little sister. We are working on reading aloud with expression, taking notice of punctuation as well as comprehension skills. The children have been utterly captivated by Aaron Becker’s book Journey and were thrilled to discover the other books in the trilogy. We have planned and written our own sequel this week in class. See photos for some examples.
Over the past 2 weeks we have been checking how well the children can read and spell the Common Exception Words from the year 2 curriculum. In your child’s planner you will find a list showing words they can both spell and read (white), words they still need to practise spelling (yellow) and words they need to practise reading and spelling (red).
There are some mathletics activities on fractions to complete and some tasks on Purplemash too.
Thank you for your continued support.
Have a lovely weekend.
Mrs Hard, Mrs Mundy and Mrs Entwistle
