W/C 9th May

Year 2 have had lots of quizzes this week. They all tried really hard and Mrs Cryan is incredibly proud of them!

This week in literacy we have carried on looking at the Julia Donaldson book ‘Room on the Broom’. The children retold the story to a partner after they had ordered pictures. We are getting really good at retelling the story from our memory; perhaps you could get your child to retell the story to you? Later in the week, we thought of questions we would like to ask the witch to find out more about her. We were very surprised when the witch turned up at the end of the lesson and we got to ask her lots of questions! At the end of the week we started to write the story from memory, we will continue this next week before writing our own version!

We haven’t had many maths lessons this week as we have been busy with quizzes! However, on Thursday when half of the class were swimming the rest of the children used different coins to make the same amount (18p= 10p+5p+2p+1p or 5p+5p+5p+2p+1p). This is something you could continue to work on at home with your child.

This week in topic we have focused on Room on the Broom and have designed our own truly magnificent brooms! We are sure you’ll agree they look rather fantastic!

Well done to Ceona who now has her certificate. Please keep reading as much as possible as we still have children who haven’t earned all of the rewards yet!

Molly and Monty went home with Noah and Rose. They had a great time practicing their times tables and working out change! This week they have gone home with Meaghan and James.
