Willow and Pine Weekly Update – Friday 23rd July
What a fantastic, but hot and busy, final week we have had!
The children enjoyed a session in the forest on Monday completing the School Council Nature trail, creating natural art, finding rhyming objects and enjoying some free time with their peers. They also completed a DT project to make a flag that represents them. The children spent time looking at and evaluating flags and then moved onto investigating the best materials to use for making a flag thinking about the suitability of the materials they had available (cotton, cling film, felt, paper, cardboard and foil) and then experimented with the best way to join. Following on from this, the children applied the knowledge and skills they had learnt to create their own flag. Each class has also completed their science investigation they planned last week.
Royal letter – This week, we received a reply to the letters we sent to the Queen last half term from Windsor Castle. The children were very excited to read the letter and the information leaflets on ‘Royal Pets, Changing the Guard and The Crown Jewels’. You can see a copy of the letter and information leaflets further down our class page.
Timetables Rock Starts will still be available to play over the summer if your child wishes to play it. Children are expected to know their 2, 5 and 10 times table by the end of Year 2 to be prepared for learning the next step in Year 3. Your child’s teacher has set the table(s) that your child needs to practise in the ‘garage’ area which they can access any time without having to play 3 games. The ‘jamming’ is a great area where your child can choose which table they would like to practise and select multiplication or division only but please prioritise learning the tables they are expected to know first (2,5 & 10) before moving on to additional ones.
Reading – Please continue to read anything and everything over the summer holidays. You may like to sign up for the Summer Reading Challenge at Bude Library with the theme: World Wide Heroes. More information can be found in the document below.
Thank you so much for your continued support with your child’s learning during another unusual school year involving a spell of home learning. We wish you a restful and enjoyable summer.
