Children in Need Ramble

admin on: Class 2 Blog

What a great morning we had. We squelched, we squashed, we slid, we rolled. We ended up tired, and very muddy. Apologies for the muddy clothes, but we hope you would agree it was for a great cause. The children were impeccably behaved, and a credit to you.

Poppy commemoration in class 2

admin on: Class 2 Blog

Thank you for the response we have had in making this project so successful. We hope you would agree the poppies look splendid, and the children are wearing them with pride. We have been inundated with support either fabric, safety pins, and parent volunteers. Thank  you Mrs Hall for organising, so much so that all the poppies were completed yesterday. We are sorry to disappoint our other volunteers, however we have another sewing project coming up before the end of term maybe you could join us if you’re available then.

In maths this week we re_visited place value. Most of the children have a more secure understanding of the value of digits, whether a single, two or three digit number. As was mentioned last week place value is an important concept because what is taught in maths from Reception through to year 6 relies heavily on children knowing the meaning of numbers. The extension for the activity below would be to order the numbers. There was also a group of children in the class working with three digits numbers.

Next week

admin on: Class 2 Blog

We hope the children will has a greater understanding of Armistice Day at the end of the week. We are using Vincent Van Gogh’s painting ‘Poppy Field’ as a starting point. Please take some time to pop in after school Friday to see what the children have been up too. 

We noticed last week in our place value maths lessons, that although lots of the children have their ten times table badges they were unable to apply this knowledge in the context of the lesson. I.e understanding the value of digits in a two digit number. Children with an understanding of place value know the meaning of numbers and number order so this is a very important concept. Take some time to look at the nrich website where there are some games to deepen conceptual understanding in a fun way. 

In English we will be writing sentences about animals with alliteration. I.e The snake saw a sock in a sack. 

Please could your child bring a safety pin to school on Monday.

Reminder school photos Monday.
