Fossils, Fireworks and Poems of Remembrance
Date: 10th Nov 2019 @ 10:55am
This week in Science we learnt how fossils are created. Then, having discovered the reality, we had a go at creating our own with salt dough. We followed this example from CBeebies:
They turned out pretty well and, hopefully, got him in one piece on Friday!
The firework part of our week came in Forest School as Mrs Booth challenged us to create a huge firework from different coloured leaves. Of course, being brilliant, we were more than up to it!
In English, we have spent the first of two weeks on Poetry, looking at Acrostic poems. The theme for our poems was Remembrance, and we can't wait to share them with you at Parents' Evening.
In Maths we are subtracting. Year 2 are using a number line, whilst Y3 and 4 are partitioning their 3 and 4 digit numbers to help them. We are making progress, but asking your child to demonstrate what they are learning in their homework, is going to help massively. We have also stepped up our focus on times tables. We have learnt our 4s and revised 2s. Our quicker multipliers have been looking at 6s.
In PE we have been plating hockey. and 6 Y2 children will be representing us in the hockey competition in two weeks time. If your child is involved, you should have received a letter.
You should also have received your progress report on Friday. If there are any immediate concerns, please contact me on Dojo, and remember to make an appointment through this website.
Next week, we have our stone age trip to look forward to and, the preparation on the school play begins!
