Welcome to Year 2 - Penguin Class      w/c 8.10.18

Please remember to return Christmas card designs to school by 16th October if you wish to participate in the FoW fundraiser. 

We're having a very busy week getting ready for our assembly. We have been reading our script, following instructions, making props, creating dances, singing songs and playing instruments. 

By the end of the week you should receive your invitation reminding you that it is on Friday 19th October at 9:00 am. After the assembly we are inviting you into the classroom to see some more of our artwork and paper creations. You can have a go yourself at some Origami. We anticipate we will be finished for 9:45am  and we hope you can make it!

Can you help? If you have a blue blanket, sheet or throw we would love to borrow it as a prop and we will return it straight after our assembly. Thank you. 

Our reading focus this week has continued to be following instructions to make things as well as reading our assembly script. It is incredibly important that the children read regularly and record their reading in their reading record books. Regular reading encourages fluency and reading stamina which are important skills for most aspects of learning and school life. We are praising regular home reading in class. Please support us in encouraging your child to change their books regularly and feel free to pop into the classroom to change books if you wish.

 In our mathematics lessons this week we have been adding 1's and 10's to 2 digit numbers.

eg: 32 +7 = 39

      32 + 5 = 37

      32 + 10 = 42

      32  +20 = 52 

We have looked at which digits change when we add 1's and 10's.

 

This Week's Homework

Thank you for all your positive feedback on the children's homework sheets. As always we love to hear about how your children are accessing the work set and appreciate your support in this. The children received lots of house-points and praise for all of their effort!

Please see the homework folder in your child's book bag for this weeks spelling challenge (oa sounds) and the weekly maths quest.  Please return your child's completed work by Tuesday 16th October for our feedback. 

We have begun to see some of the homework topic projects in class this week and it has been lovely to share them. The children are excited about their projects which are underway and talking about their research into weather, famous explorers and celebrations etc. 

 Try a game of Hit the Button to practice bonds or tables facts.
