We’ve had another super week reading the story ‘The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark’. After working on using conjunctions and asking questions, the children have now started to plan their own new chapter for the book, following the general structure of the other chapters. Next week they will finish planning them and write their new chapter ready to share with the Year 3 children.
In Phonics we have completed our Phase 5 review sessions and will be completing assessments next week to identify any gaps the children will need to continue working on.
In Maths we started our new unit on Addition and Subtraction. We have been revisiting bonds to 10 and learned how these help us work out bonds to 20 and related facts to 100. We have also been adding tens and ones as we learn more about the structure of the number system.
The children have been learning about recycling in Science this week and talking about what we can do to help recycle and prevent plastics from ending up in our oceans! They have also completed some lovely landscape paintings based on the work of Van Gogh.
Please remember to read with your child as often as you can and always record in their reading records when you read with them. Any children on Accelerated Reader books must complete a quiz before moving on to another book so it’s important they are reading fluently and able to answer questions about what they have read.
Have a lovely weekend and enjoy the warm weather!
