Well done on a fabulous return to school and brilliant 1st half term. You have all worked extremely hard and should be very proud of yourselves. It has been a pleasure getting to know you all so much better and to watch how you have taken care of one another and enjoyed each others friendship. I have been so impressed with your eagerness to learn and the work you have produced. I am especially proud of all your Traction Man books they look fantastic !
Please do not worry about missing out on what we had planned for our last day of the half term!
I promise that when we return to school we will:
- Make our 3D clay tiles
- Complete our Infant Agility PE Challenges
- Announce the winners of the half termly trophies for reading, writing and maths
- PLUS - have some fun with Science Experiments
Have a good rest over the next week or so and I'll look forward to seeing you all on Monday 2nd November.
I apologise for not being able to put examples of the children's work for this week on our class page, unfortunately as I am working from home I do not have access to their books or other photos I have taken. You will however, have been aware of what we had been learning from the overview I add under the following week's tab.
A couple of points to note:
- The 'flu nasal spray session that was due to have been carried out this week will now be re-arranged for 2C. The new date will be Tuesday 24th November.
- we will be re-commencing our Forest School programme after 1/2 term, on a Thursday afternoon. I have letters to go out but these will not now be sent home until Monday 2nd November at the earliest. Your child will either need to come dressed in Forest School appropriate clothes OR their PE kit. Please check the list below to see which session your child will be attending - both starting on 5th November:
Over the past half term the children have been enjoying exploring beat in MUSIC with Mrs Chard. They have been using claves and egg shakers to keep a steady beat. They have been feeling and finding the beat, and discovering strong and weak beats. They have 2 sayings with actions that support their learning:
A steady beat doesn't change. It is the heart beat of music. We are awesome. Yeah!
A strong beat comes 1st in a measure. The weak beats come after the strong beat.
Just in case anyone would like to do any work over the next few days, I have set tasks and a problem solving question o Mathletics and the Year 2 common exception words on Spelling Shed (to expire 31/10/20). Don't forget Bug Club for reading and comprehension!
I would love to receive photos of any other home learning you do via the KS1 email address. It would be great to share these on our class page.
