Newsletter 3 – Summer Term 11th May 2017
Happy Home Learning
Can you practice the number 3? Remember we say “round the tree, round the tree” as we write. Also, we would like you to bring a family photo to school on Monday. Foundation Stage 2
Literacy – This week we would like all children to practise writing their full name (Christian and Surname) and be secure in doing this independently by the end of this half term in readiness for assessments and entry to Year One.
Numeracy – We have been learning how to double numbers. We have been working with numbers to 10 and have used counters to check / count amounts to find a double
e.g. 3 – double it = 3+3 = 6. So, double 3 equals 6. Please practise doubling this week and if you have a game of Dominoes, see if you can point out doubles.
Literacy – Please read your reading book. Can you find any contractions? (Words that are made from 2 separate words that have been pushed together). The apostrophe represents the missing letters.
Spellings – I’, I’ll, I’d, we, will, would, wouldn’t, could, couldn’t, don’t, can’t
Maths – We have used the part part whole strategy to split numbers and to work out a missing part. Use equipment to make a ‘whole’ number. Split it into two parts and tell the story.
e.g. I started with 8, I split it into two parts, this part is 6, this part is 2, 6 & 2 is equal to 8 or 8 is equal to 6 and 2.
You could write it like this
6 + 2 = 8 or 8 = 6 + 2
The Year 2 children have worked incredibly hard during the last two weeks whilst concentrating on their SATS papers. For their homework this week we would like them to play outside and enjoy the fresh air, go for walk to the park, eat ice cream and have a fabulous time with their family and friends.
Class of the Week 1st – 5th April
What a fabulous week! Class 9 is ‘Class of the Week’ with a perfect 100% attendance level. Unit 4 attained a level of 99.6% and Class 8 attained a level of 99.1% and we are very proud of all 3 classes.
Once more, we have a large number of school jumpers, coats and lunch boxes etc. which have been left in school. Please check that your child has all their belongings with them when you collect them from school at the end of the day and make sure that their name is clearly marked somewhere on their belongings to help staff identify their owner when they are mislaid. Thank you.
