Tuesday 7th February

Today is Internet Safety Day, we learnt all about keeping ourselves safe on the internet and how important it is to follow the rules.We found out how old we need to be to have some internet accounts such as snapchat, facebook and youtube. We were all very shocked to find out most sites required us to be at least 13.

As part of today we also found out what to do if we felt we were being cyber bullied.   

 

We have made some posters to show how important we feel it is to be safe. 

Wednesday 25th January

Today was a very exciting day because Google expeditions came into school. We got to explore many places through the VR goggles such as the Great Barrier Reef and we went on an Ocean Safari. The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

This week in Maths we have been learning about shapes and will continue to do so next week. We will then be revisiting addition using Base 10 and the expanded column method. In English we have learnt the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and have looked at the features of the text. Next week we will be innovating the text focusing on direct speech and prepositions. In our topic we have been learning about our skeletons and how they protect us. We thought of questions that we would like to find out about our skeletons and used the iPads to find the answers. In computing we have been learning to programme a sprite using Scratch. We will be continuing to create algorithms and debug when it is needed. 

 

With spellings now being taught in class, our homework has now changed. Weekly spellings will no longer be sent home and instead we will send an English task home. Homework will still be sent home on a Thursday, to be returned the following Thursday.

The children really enjoyed going to ASDA on Tuesday and singing christmas songs in the community. It was lovely to see so many parents supporting us too. When the children got back to school we warmed up with hot chocolate and marshmallows made for us by the parents group. It was delicious! 

Week beginning the 12th December.

 

What a busy week we have planned!

 

Tuesday 13th December at 1.40pm the children will be singing in the community at Asda. Come and support and sing along with your child. 

 

Wednesday 14th December - the children will be getting creative and taking part in a Christmas carousel of activities. Followed by our yummy Christmas dinner. 

Don't forget your child can come in their party clothes.

 

Thursday 15th December - the children will continue to get creative and finish the Christmas activities.

 

Friday 16th December - we will be getting festive and wearing our Christmas jumpers. We are also planning to have our attendance reward on this date, we will keep you posted.

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

We would like to invite you into our class on Wednesday 7th December at 9:00 – 9:20  or 2:40pm – 3:00pm to share with you our learning from this half term. We will be singing, re-telling our Talk 4 Writing story, ‘Midas’ and sharing our own stories from this half term. We hope you can join us and we look forward to seeing you.

 

Many Thanks

Reading at home

Following a training course, we have been told that your child's reading record can be a key piece of evidence in helping decide if your child is a fluent reader or not. The comments that you put in the reading record can be extremely important. Below is an example which highlights the strengths and areas to work on for the child.

 

 

In addition to this, we have also been told that children should be keeping reading books for anywhere up to 2 weeks. This will enable your child to have a much deeper understanding of the book. Being able to read books is an important skill but if books are kept longer, children will know the texts better and therefore will be able to engage in discussion about the book. This is an important skill for any child to be Working at the Expected Standard in year 3. Please keep this in mind if your child's book is not changed as frequently.

 

Is your child past their Spell by Date?

 

Below are two lists of words that all year 3 children should already know. We are finding that lots of children cannot read and spell these words quickly or accurately enough. For your child to be at Working at the Expected Standard in year 3 they must be able to read, write and spell all of these words and more!! Please have a look at the lists and check with your child and help them learn them!

Year 2 High Frequency Words list

On Tuesday 22nd November we will be going into the garden to plant a tree and discover the types of animals that live in our garden and look at their habitats. Please make sure your child is sent to school with appropriate clothing and footwear to change into. Thanks.
This week Sapporo have been learning the expanded method of addition and subtraction. We have also started our new English unit on myths. Below are some links to help. Don't forget to try and become a Rock God at TT Rock Stars.
