Message from Mylo

I am missing all of you so much. I got a little bit bored so I ran off with Mummy’s (Mrs Elder’s) tea towel so that she would chase me. I am keeping her busy but am missing you all. Please look after yourselves and hopefully I will see you soon.
Love Mylo XX

Homework

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

 

  • Always try your best.
  • Ask your parents for help only when you need it.
  • If you are unsure or need more help, please ask a teacher in school.
  • Use a pencil or a black pen to do your best handwriting.
  • Hand in your homework book every Thursday morning.
  • Your homework book is your responsibility, not your parents.
  • If homework isn’t handed in on the Thursday, you will miss a break time.

 

Reading books

 

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.

 

 

P.E

 

PE is every Friday, please leave PE kits in school where possible and we will send them home at the end of each term.

 

 

 

Library Books

 

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.

Maths

 

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.

 

Pantomime trip - Jack and the Beanstalk

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.

Germ Spreading Experiment

Bollywood Dancing

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!
