Home learning challenge
Hello purple class! Hope you’re keeping busy! Here are a few activities to be doing to keep you busy!
Everyday maths activities that you can do:
Homework will be handed out every Friday and collected in the following Thursday. There will be one English and one Maths piece of Homework a week.
Purple Class Homework rules
We aim to check reading books every day, whether your child has read their book or not, please bring it in so we can read with them in school.
PE is every Friday, please leave PE kits in school where possible and we will send them home at the end of each term.
Each child in Purple Class will be taken to our school library on a Tuesday and will able to choose a book to keep in their tray.
Year 2 SATs
The Year 2s will be doing their SATs in the middle of May. The children will be tested on their Maths and English skills. Please be reassured that we deliver these tests in such a way as to ensure it is not stressful for the children; if you have any questions please ask.
To ensure a smooth transition at the beginning of the day there will be a member of staff on the door to address any concerns. If you would like to speak to a member of staff at the end of the day please wait until all the children have been collected to ensure all children are delivered to parents safely. If you feel you would like to make an appointment to speak to Mrs Smith, please do so at the school office.
This week some of us have been multiplying numbers up to 100 by 1 digit numbers. Here are are some pictures of us working really hard to do this using tens and ones and place value counters.
In our Science this term we have been learning about keeping ourselves healthy and clean.
Last week we did an experiment to investigate how easily germs can spread by using glitter.
After only putting a small amount of glitter on the palm of our hand it soon spread to lots of different places very quickly (Sorry Mr McGough). We had such fun and we all learnt why it is really important to wash our hands. We hope you enjoy looking at some of the pictures.
As part of our learning about the festival Diwali, a lovely lady came in to school to teach us how to do Bollywood Dancing. We had so much fun!
