You wouldn’t think that this week has been a 4 day week at school! We have achieved so much and everyone has worked so hard.
In Literacy we have continued writing information reports. We continued writing our Mini Beast Leaflets on Purple Mash and we’ll be using these as part of our mini beast hunts and activities at the Sleep Over. Your child can log into Purple Mash at home and show you their work and even continue to work on it or create new projects.
I then let the children decide what they would like to create reports on and most of the class chose to write about pets, while a smaller group decided to work on dinosaurs. The children worked in small groups, creating a spider-gram to help them organise the report and then writing an introduction, paragraphs about different pets (or dinosaurs) and then a conclusion. Here are the posters they created together.
Here is Madam Dragon’s tip sheet for writing brilliant reports. We have been making sure that our work would receive a Gold Star from her!
In Maths we have been really stretching our brain and tackling some thought provoking challenges! Can you make every amount of money using only 5p and 2p coins? (with the exception of 1p and 11p?) What would happen if we had 3ps and 5ps? How many ways could you create a chocolate box to hold 24 chocolates?
We also played a game and created factor bugs! Ask your child to show you how to draw them! This game really helped us to think about odd and even numbers and the factors that make other numbers. We also played a couple of the Maths games on Purple Mash that helped us to think about factors.
Have you noticed that we have put bird feeders and bird boxes up in the conservation area? When we went to fill up the bird feeders, it was obvious that the birds had enjoyed them! This is a really special area for the children and each class enjoys spending some quiet time here at playtimes.
This morning we are starting work on the area at the other side of the Conservation Area. We will be taking back some of the brambles, staking alder trees and preparing the ground so that we can plant a wild flower area. It will take a little while to develop and grow, but it will provide another wonderful area for wildlife and for the children to explore.
In Special Mention, 2 children received their awards from a previous week, when they both missed the assembly and then this weeks awards were both for their excellent Learning Log work and for putting in brilliant effort all week. Our Mathlete of the week achieved over 8,000 points and we also awarded another Gold Award. Well done to everyone, you’ve all really challenged yourselves and worked hard.
Enjoy your weekend. From all the 2F team 🙂

This week in numeracy, we have been recapping division and multiplication. The children have been answering questions using number lines with the knowledge that multiplication is repeated addition and division is repeated subtraction.
The children have been practising the strategies they have been taught and have been applying them to worded problems.

With another exciting Sleep Over planned for June 20th, we are all very excited about the range of activities we will be hosting at our North Nature Centre. I’m hoping that as the children are becoming such experts they will be able to help me run the activities during the day….. and for the evening we are even planning a NOCTURNAL event!
Next week we are going to become experts on ‘Nocturnal Animals!’ They have the task set for their Learning Log and we will also be learning about nocturnal animals in class. Each day, I shall post more links to different animals.
Look out for our ‘Mastermind’ quizzes which we will post at the end of the week! Here are some links to help you find lots of facts, as well as links to a couple of songs we have been learning ( The last picture link is to the Night animal song).
Can you add the facts you learn as comments on this post?
