Dear Parents and children
Another week has flown by and the children worked brilliantly. In English they wrote modified versions of a traditional story. In math we learned how to add and subtract on a number line and find the difference of two numbers using addition and subtraction. In IPC we continued our investigation of buildings, focusing on how to build a house and the parts thereof, culminating in a tower-building contest and the Year 5/6’s paid us a visit to share their projects with us. A great end to a great week.
I would like to remind the parents of Year 1 / 2 children in my class that on Monday 30 October we will be taking a new class photo and children should wear their Blue School Uniforms please.
Their Spelling words as practiced in class for this week for the test on Monday 30 October are:
Year 1’s wind, jump, sink, pink, tent, he, for, was, on, are.
Year 2’s suddenly, sneezed, could, peak, peek, along, never, next, while, left.
Lastly, a final reminder to anyone who has not completed the online permission form for the trip next week to do so by Monday 30 October.
On Tuesday 31st October we are having a Dress-up Day and children are welcome to come to school in costume. I look forward to seeing what wonderful and creative characters will show up. (I might even wear a costume myself). It promises to be a fun day. Enjoy these photo’s of the children working hard this week.
Please complete the permission form by Monday 30 October 2017 if you are happy for your son/daughter to attend the tour of Hyundai Heavy Industries and visit the Ulgi Lighthouse and the bridge at Daewangam Park. Children should wear their school uniform and bring a jacket and comfy shoes since we will be outdoors for part of the day. They should bring their lunch, snack and a water bottle.
Dear Parents and children
It has been a full and busy week and we have gotten through a lot of work. In literacy we looked closely at “The three little pigs”, performing plays and puppet shows and we learned about other traditional tales and features of stories. In math we learned how to make 10 and 20 from a given number and started using multiples as groups and in IPC we looked closely at what different buildings are used for and how they have changed over time. In P.E. We played some new games such as bowling and “Pie-eater” and even practiced our alphabet. It was a lot of fun.
On Monday there will be a spelling test. The year 1’s will be tested on the words “bell”, “buzz”, “class”, “huff”, “the”, “of”, “and”, “to”. Please practice over the weekend.
The year 2’s will be tested on some high frequency words and the words from their literacy; “helpful”, “friendly”, “beginning”, “middle”, “problem”, “should”, “house”, “build”, “chimney”, “give”. Please practice these over the weekend.
I look forward to an even more productive week coming and wish all an enjoyable weekend. Here are some photos of your children having fun learning.
In line with our new topic ‘Buildings’, Year 1/2 classes are having another exciting trip to HHI and Daewangam Park.
