Book Club: ‘They didn’t teach us this at Worm School!’
It has been great to see so many children turn up to the book club on a Friday break time! They’re all so enthusiastic and a delight to have in the classroom.
Take a look at what we have been up to:
Lights, Camel, Action!
Oh WOW! I feel SO proud to be the teacher of not only a wonderful group of children, but also some of the most talented children too! Both Mrs Bolton and I felt so proud of the outcome of the show. Everyone worked so hard, were engaged, motivated and just great delights. Well done all!
We spent some of the week looking at finding different ways of making a set amount of money. The children worked well using both money, written formulas and hundred, tens and ones dienes to problem solve.
This week, we began some creative extended writing. We focused on a seasonal advert set in 2016, and the children participated in some guided writing. Collectively, we all worked together to make a solid introduction before the children went to create their own versions of the middle sections. They are STUNNING!! I plan on sending versions of these home so that we can share their creativity with you too.
Here you will find a useful website, should you be interested in finding more interesting texts for your children to read. You can browse by age so that you know they’re appropriate, as well as finding some above or beneath. Sharing stories with your children is such a powerful tool and can accelerate their reading, vocabulary, writing and general outlook.
Additional Home Resources
As part of Year 2 expectations, children should (by the end of the year) be able to read and write these words. Please find attached a copy for you to use at your leisure at home. We will be working towards these in our spelling sessions too.
For any of you who weren’t able to make our session about Ash Class, please see the presentation available in a PDF above.
