SPELLINGS 

Now set weekly on spellingshed

 

I will add spellings every Friday for the children to learn at home smiley

**If you are unsure which spellings your child should use, choose the set that are a bit of a challenge for them but not too difficult. **

Copy out each word saying each letter as they write.

Look, cover, write and check for each word. 

Activities to help learn them include writing each word into a sentence, play hangman guessing letters to make up the word, give clues with the words in front of them e.g. my word has two b's and one e, make a poster with all of the words drawing a picture next to each one to help the children remember the meaning, write the words on paper and stick them up around the house!

Great fun and then you can colour in the illustrations. Make up a name and personality for the animals. Write s few sentences to describe this.

Try to get outside and play in the fresh air....any throwing and catching with a ball, bean bag, small cushion or teddy if you don't have a ball, playing piggy in the middle, play a game where you have to score in a hoop or behind a line. Skipping, running races and setting up circuits in the house or outside are all fun activities.

What have we been doing in Class 2? 
Some of us in Class 2 have been learning to find half of numbers and shapes. We used numicon and play dough.  
Class 2 have made their own space ships using boxes and tin foil. We had some great designs. smiley

SCIENCE

 

As part of our science linked to our topic of Tim Peak, we investigated the most suitable packaging to take food into space. We tested the packaging by pouring cold soup into them (its looks a bit disgusting as you will see!). We tested tin foil, kitchen roll, cardboard and a plastic resealable bag. We predicted what might happen and then found out that the most suitable packing was the plastic resealable bag. 

We have been using counters to help us understand place value when adding and subtracting. 

 

On Tuesday 8th October Reverend Ian visited our class to support us in our R.E. learning about Bibles. We asked Reverend Ian lots of questions about his favourite Bibles and what the Bibles meant to him. We all really enjoyed Reverend Ian's visit and learnt lots! 
Such an exciting time in Class 2! We have made our own diorama's based on the text 80 Days Around the World. Everybody chose their favourite scene. Look at the wonderful art work...can you guess which scene it is? 

Around the World in 80 Days dioramas

Today (16/09/19) we had outdoor maths. We have been working on place value and Class 2 had the task of making 2 and 3 digit numbers (and higher if they can) using things that they find in nature to represent the ones, tens and hundreds. Class 2 really enjoyed working outside and they worked well with their partners.

Thank you for the homework that you have completed so far, we have been amazed by the standard. It's lovely to have our classroom filled with hot air balloons!
