Attenborough class have had a brilliant second week at school. I have been extremely impressed with the fantastic attitudes to learning in class and this has allowed us to investigate number in great detail this week.
The whole class has looked at place value in detail and we have alos explored the properties of numbers. All the children can confidently talk about numbers being odd or even and yesterday were able to do this for numbers up to 1,000,000 just for fun!! In addition to this we have looked closely at the language associated with numbers and focussed on discussing tens and ones. This language will be important in year 2 so please ask your child to tell you more about it.
In English, we have begun learning about Jack and the Beanstalk. The children will continue to learn the text over the next few days so be prepared for plenty of "FEE-FI-FO-FUMS!" Whilst we were exploring the text we also investgated language and discussed words incuding ramshackled, furious and towering. High level vocabulary and language is crucial for progress in year 2 so please ask your children about the language that they have been using in English lessons.
Finally, on Wednesday, the children took part in a special PE lesson from British Military Fitness. They loved every second of it!
An excellent week Attenborough class, keep up the good work!!
Please check your child's school bag today. They have important information about our first trip! As part of our first topic about plants, we will be visiting tropical world on the 19th September. Your child will need to return their letter ASAP with the accompanying E1 form if they wish to come.
Thank you in advance, Mr Smith.
