Lateness at morning drop off and afternoon pick-ups:
Please can we remind you of our start and finish times. Year 2 children start at 8:50a.m. and this is the time at which we should be going into class. Teachers are usually outside at 8:45. Pick up is at 2:50p.m. As we are the first class to leave, any late pick-ups impact on the other classes being able to dismiss their children. Please be as punctual as you can and let the office know if you think you may be late.
Work for children who are off due to Covid 19: If your child needs to self-isolate, the first day of learning is on our website. If your child is off for longer, your child’s class teacher(s) will set work on Tapestry.
English: This week, the children working on Read, Write, Inc. have been focussing on a new book. Those in the pink and yellow groups have been assigned this book to read at home on the Oxford Owl site. If you are having problems accessing this, please do get in touch. Your child should have their log in details in their purple book. Children who are not following the Read Write Inc. scheme have independently written a set of instructions this week.
Maths: In maths this week, we have continued to learn about fractions. The children have continued to practise finding one quarter of a given amount and have learnt how to recognise a third. They have also completed a reasoning and problem solving maths assessment based on the learning they have done to date.
Topic: The children have enjoyed discussing the results from their cress investigation in this week’s science lessons and used the data to create block graphs which they answered questions about. Our magic beans are still growing and doing well and will be looked after during the Easter holidays. We will be looking at how much they have grown when we return to school after the break.
Parents Meetings: During the first two weeks of the summer term, we will be carrying out parent meetings via phone calls. You should have received an email with an allotted time. Please confirm you have received the email and that the time we have given is suitable.
There is no spellings or maths homework for the Easter holiday, but we do expect children to continue reading during the holiday.
Thank you for your continued support this term.
