Class 2

18th December

 

We have had a wonderful Christmassy week! This week we have recorded our lovely Christmas songs! We hope you have enjoyed watching them on Tapestry. Our party was wonderful this week. The children said it was the “best party ever” and it was full of games, dancing, singing and laughter.  All children have been taking part in Christmas crafts and you should have received your Christmas card, snow globe bauble and calendar.  The children worked so hard to produce all of these so we hope you like them. 

Have a wonderful Christmas and we look forward to seeing you in the New Year.

11th December

 

This Week we have been getting even more excited about Christmas! We have been making Christmas cards and Christmas crafts this week. The children can’t wait to show you! 
 
We have been continuing to sing Christmas songs and have learnt some new ones too!  
 
Reception will be having their Christmas party on Wednesday 16th December. Children can come to school in their party clothes that day. Instead of asking for food and drink donations, we are asking for a 50p donation so that teachers can go and buy treats for the class. We would be grateful if this could be brought into school by Friday 11th December. 
Our Maths sessions this week have covered 2-D shapes. We have been using shape names and talking about their properties e.g. a square has 4 sides and 4 corners like a rectangle but they are different. Children now know that oblong is another name for a rectangle. In Phonics we are now in groups so we are continuing to learn the sounds we already know and applying them so we can read and write simple words. We have been continuing to learn our tricky red words that can’t be sounded out: ‘I to the  my me he she said’ 

This week a well done to:
Dojo winners: George, Isabella and Scarlette
Star of the day: Oli and Leana
Kindness bracelets: Scarlett and Mia

This Week we have been getting very excited about Christmas! We have been decorating the Christmas Tree and opening our Class advent calendar. All children have also been very excited to see what the naughty class elf has been doing! Children have also enjoyed learning the ‘Christmas Story’ and love acting out the story outside with different props and costumes.  
 
We have been continuing to sing Christmas songs and have learnt some new ones too!  
 
Reception will be having their Christmas party on Wednesday 16th December. Children can come to school in their party clothes that day. Instead of asking for food and drink donations, we are asking for a 50p donation so that teachers can go and buy treats for the class. We would be grateful if this could be brought into school by Friday 11th December. 
 
Due to the current restrictions in place, we will not be able to invite parents to any Christmas concerts this year. Instead, each class will be part of a Beechwood Christmas assembly including songs, poetry and art. The assembly will be uploaded onto the ‘Assemblies’ section on the school website in the final week for parents and carers to watch. The children are looking forward to watching these with their class as well! For the recording please could children come wearing Christmas jumpers on Friday 11th December. If they don’t have a Christmas jumper a plain red or green top would be fine.  
 
Children can still bring Christmas cards into school for children and adults in their year group bubble. The cards will be placed into a box and given out after been left for 72 hours. Please ensure your child brings in their cards by Friday 11th December so they can be given out in the final week of term. 
 
Our Maths sessions this week have covered the number ‘9’. We have looked at language like ‘ninth’, 1 more than 8 is 9, 1 less than 10 is 9. In Phonics we have continued to re cap on all the sounds we have learnt so far.  We are continuing to say sounds in words and blend them together to make the full word. Children do need lots of practise of this skill so that reading simple words becomes much easier to do.  We have been continuing to learn our tricky red words that can’t be sounded out: ‘I to the  my me he she said’ 

Well done to:
Dojo winners: George, Evelyn, Lacey and Oliver.
Star of the day: Mia.
Kindness Bracelet: Lewis.

This week has been very busy! We’ve been continuing to learn about Diwali and we have also spent time teaching the children about Remembrance day. 
 
Children have enjoyed making Diva lamps, sparkly elephants, Rangoli patterns and creating pictures of Rama and Sita. We learnt the ‘Rama and Sita’ story this week and talked about the important message ‘Good overrides evil’.
Our Maths sessions this week have covered the number ‘6’. We have looked at language like ‘sixth’, 1 more than 5 is 6, 1 less than 7 is 6. In Phonics we have learnt how to say and write the sounds ‘th, z, ch, q’.

Well done to Maya for earning the Kindness Bracelet, to Sean and Riley for earning the Star of the Day and to Charlie, Maddie and Scarlette for winning the Dojo prize for the most Dojo's this week.

Children had a fun dressing up for Children in Need day! Thankyou for all the donations.

6th November

 

Welcome back! What a wonderful first week back we have had. The children have settled back well into a new routine.   

Our Maths sessions this week have covered the number ‘5’. We have looked at language like ‘fifth’.  We have been singing lots of songs that include the number 5 like ‘5 little ducks’ and ‘5 little aliens’. In Phonics we have learnt how to say and write the sounds ‘j v w y th’.  Children can now read simple words with these sounds in like ‘jet, vet, wet, yak, this’. We have been working on children sounding out each sound, then saying the sounds faster and then blending them together.  

We have been learning about Bonfire night and Diwali this week. Children have been singing and dancing to firework music. They have also been creating fireworks using scrap outside and a selection of creative materials inside. They now know that Diwali is a festival that is celebrated by Hindu’s and Sikhs and it originated in India. It is called the ‘festival of light’. During Diwali they light little diva lamps and have a party with their family with food, music and dance.  

Well done to our Dojo winners this week: Sophia, Isabella and Daisy.

A big well done to all children for completing their first half term. 
In Maths this half term we have been focusing on numbers to 4 and have looked at simple number concepts relating to these numbers. The children have enjoyed starting our class Number Book where they have found the numbers in a variety of ways in the environment. 
In Phonics we have learnt how to say and write the sounds ‘m, a, s, d, t, I, n, p, g, o, c, k, u, b, f, e, l, h, sh, r’.  Children can now read simple words with these sounds in like ‘bed, leg, hat, ship, red’. We have been working on children sounding out each sound, then saying the sounds faster and then blending them together. 
We have had a great ‘Black History Month’ and have listened to music from different countries, made traditional African necklaces, learnt a song and learnt a poem from Zimbabwe.
Have a great half term and we will see you all on Monday 2nd November
Mrs Lyons and Mrs Giles.

25th September

 

We have had a wonderful first week with all children in! Everyone has settled really well and are getting into a good routine.


This week we have started 'learning time' sessions in which the children acquire new knowledge. In Phonics this week we have learnt how to write and say the sounds- m, a, s, d and t. Children have enjoyed learning some new sounds and can now read simple words like am, sad, Sam, mat. We have started learning about the number 1 this week and all the different elements of number 1, for example, one whole, first, Numicon 1. We have read a range of books this week but have been focusing on rhyming words. As part of our 'Around the World' topic we have been talking to children about where they live and what holidays they have been on. Well done Class 2!
