Maple, Pine & Willow Weekly Update - Friday 15th March
English: This week, the children continued to write their own versions of Jack and the Beanstalk. They focussed mainly on using accurate punctuation this week.
Maths: The Year 1 children have been learning how to create bonds to 20 whilst the Year 2 children practised counting in steps of ½ and ¼ up to 10 (i.e. ½, 1, 1 and ½, 2, 2 and ½, 3 etc.)
Maths homework: Next week, we will be starting to learn about measuring length and height. It would be very helpful if the children could practise measuring the length of items at home. Year 1 children should be able to do this using objects (for example, the pencil is five grapes long) and Year 2 children should be able to use a ruler to measure in cm.
Reading and spellings: Please continue reading with your child at least five times a week. New spellings were given this week, in preparation for spelling quiz next Friday.
Bulb Donation: Thank you so much for the generous donations of bulbs. The children really enjoyed planting these around our outside area and we are all excited to see them grow!
Trip: Thank you to all the parent helpers who gave up their time to help us on our trips this week. The children had a fantastic time and learnt lots about how plants grow. During the day, the children planted some salad leaves which your child should have brought home by now. I think you’ll all agree, we were extremely lucky with the weather!
Head Lice: Please check your child’s hair and treat if necessary as head lice are currently a problem in Year 1 and 2.
