Penhaligon Newsletter 5.5.17
This week we have been dividing in our Maths. The children are fantastic at using pictorial representations to help them with their division. In English we wrote our own versions of Jack and the Beanstalk. The children wrote brilliant stories!
Home Learning and Reading
Home Learning this week is a grammar booklet. The children may want to split the activities over a few days rather than attempting it all in one go. 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.
Spellings this week are linked to spelling rules that the children will be revising next week.
Group 1- bridge, fudge, ice, city, knee, know, write, wrap, apple, little.
Group 2- change, village, race, fancy, gnaw, knock, wrestle, wriggly, tentacle, possible.
This week we will be learning the five times table. The children have a copy of the 10x table in their spellings book. They need to be able to recall the 10x table facts in and out of order. There will be a times table check every Friday.
The year 2 SATS will take place in the classroom and in the library on the weeks beginning the 15th and 22nd May. The children will do 6 papers in total spread out over these two weeks. The children are used to doing practise papers and we aim to keep these two weeks as relaxed as possible. If you have any further questions, concerns, or you would like more information please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
