In Maths this week we have been practising finding the difference on a number line. Some children really enjoyed this method and I’m sure they would love to teach their families how to do it. In Literacy we have been learning how to write Chronological reports and how to use sub headings. In our Design and Technology this week we designed are own flags. With Mrs Davis we created our own masks.

 

Home Learning

For Home Learning this week I would like the children to complete the place value colouring activity. Please feel free to change the colours.

Support tips:

  • Encourage your child to solve the calculation first and then to colour it in on the hundred square.
  • Some children might prefer to solve all of the calculations first and then to start colouring them in.

 

Spellings this week are linked to our Phonics learning on prefixes/suffixes and some common exception words for year 2.

Spellings Group 1- wishes, foxes, unkind, uncover, dislike, bigger, biggest, slower, slowest nicest.

Spellings Group 2- princesses, guesses, disappear, invisible, happiest, funniest, even, everybody, half, again.

Times tables- Next week we will be practising the multiplication/division facts for the 2 x table.

 

Recorder

If the children have their own recorders remember to bring them in.

 

Thank you for your continued support

Support tips:

  • Use the search engine safe search kids to search online. We have been using this search engine in class and the children have a very good understanding of how to stay safe online.

This week we have been completing our SATS. The children have been fantastic and a real credit to themselves. Well done Penhaligon class! In Science we made our own plant models and labelled them with Mrs Davis.

Home Learning and Reading

As we are finishing off Sats next week and the children will be tested in their spelling, reading and arithmetic I have not set any formal home learning. If you would like to you could continue to practise the 2s, 5s, and 10s times tables and revise any spellings previously learnt this year. As an optional activity practise telling the time with your child. We made our own clocks today and the children need to practise making and reading half past, quarter to, and quarter past times.  Please ensure you are reading with your child as often as possible. The children need to be practising their reading at home to ensure that they continue to build their fluency and develop their understanding. Please initial their reading record when you have read with them.

Mrs Whatley will be coming in every Monday to teach recorder for the rest of this term. We have had three sessions so far and the children have been fantastic! We hope to include a recorder performance in our class assembly and open afternoon on Thursday 13th July.
