Weekly Update – T2W3

Dear Parents,

I hope you are all well and staying warm in this cold weather. We have had lots of sniffles this week! 

Parent Teacher Conferences 

Parent Teacher Conferences will be held on February 9th and 10th. If you haven’t done so already please use this form to choose a time. It would be great to meet you all! If these times do not work for you please email me directly to arrange an alternative time.

Let’s take a look at what we have been learning this week!🙂

In English this week, we focused on story endings. We finished reading the story, “The Big Pancake” and we discovered that the ending was quite different to the other stories we have looked at. This gave us the opportunity to compare the stories. We looked at similarities and differences in all three stories and sorted the information into tables. Year 2 worked very well as a group this week and were very good at working independently on their writing. Year 1 students are becoming more confident with writing and were able to write their answers in beautiful handwriting.

In Maths, Year 1 has been working on numbers from 1-20. They practised saying the numbers, writing them and also filled in missing numbers on our tuff tray! They did very well and they should now be able to confidently count out loud from 1-20! Year 2 have been working on fractions and have worked very hard on some of the challenges set out for them this week. On Friday they completed a small progress test to see how well they have understood the content from the week. I will be going over the answers next week with the children so we can work on areas that are still a little tricky.

In IPC we are still learning all about ‘Who we are’! The children looked at significant events in their lives and how they had made them feel. Ms Temple took all her old photos out to show the children and we had great fun trying to find her in her school photos! We also made emblems to represent our families. We are going to be displaying them outside for everyone to see! The students are enjoying filling up their journals with all their beautiful work they have completed so far.

We finished off our short week with some fun birthday themed games to celebrate Ethan’s birthday. Happy 7th Birthday!  The children were very lucky and got to enjoy some delicious ice-cream cake from Ethan’s mum. There was also a lovely party bag sent home in their bags from Ethan. Thank you so much!

I took lots of lovely pictures and will upload them on Monday for you all to see!

Enjoy the weekend,

Take care,

Mrs. Sim
