Weekly review 

We have had another busy week in class 2. We have been retelling the story of the nativity in English using our own words and some that we remember from our performance!  In maths we have continued learning about using money, finding change and solving two step word problems.

We watched KS2 perform their amazing Christmas show on Monday and were really impressed with how well they sang and spoke.  We were inspired by their performance, using it to spark some discussions in RE about the gifts within ourselves that we can share with one another; we gave each other some really lovely compliments! 

On Wednesday, we had a wonderful craft afternoon and, thanks to lots of willing parent helpers, managed to make a lot of lovely Christmas decorations to take home.    

   

   

Today has been our home learning exhibition and the teachers have been really impressed with our efforts, especially the stories and retellings of the Gunpowder Plot. 

We were also honoured to perform our nativity songs to the Cameo group at their Christmas lunch. They were really impressed with our singing and were really happy to receive the Christmas cards we made for them. 

Please do endeavour to read with and to your child every day at home too, as the more practice they have, the quicker they will progress. The book marks attached to their planners should offer further guidance. On Friday the children will also bring home a book from our book corner. This is for reading for pleasure and may be beyond their own reading ability so read it to them and enjoy. Please return these books on Monday. 

Home learning

Here you will find our home learning menu. Please remember we expect the children to read every day. This should be recorded in the School Planner. Please use the Reading Menu to encourage your children to read a wider selection of books.

Spellings

 

 There are no spellings to learn this week as we are so close to the holidays. Review the words we have learned this term and be ready for some new learning in the new year. 

Reading Menu

 

Here is the reading menu for this term.  They are for the children to work on at home and in school. If they complete a line or four corners,  they get a bookmark/sticker and once they complete a full house they get to choose a book from Mrs Hard's special box. We ask parents to sign to show that they have completed the challenge. 

We hope to encourage a wide reading diet and to support the children in reading daily and developing a good stamina for reading  in order to complete the whole menu by Christmas.
