The Year 2 children loved sharing their nocturnal animal fact files with Year 1 today. The children showed them their plans, drafts and final published reports. The Year 1 children were so impressed and invited us back in the Spring term to read their fact files which they will create in the new year.
Laszlo is afraid of the dark. The dark lives in the same house as Laszlo but mostly it spends its time in the basement. It doesn't visit Laszlo in his room. Until one night it does. Through the work The Dark by Lemony Snicket and Jon Klassen.
Our Key Text Driver this half term
This week in Dragonfly and Firefly Class the children have been busy editing their non-chronological reports about nocturnal animals. Once the children revised their writing they published their reports. The children have worked very hard with their handwriting and presentation and we are very proud of them. Please see below a few examples of their amazing work.
This term the children will be learning about the significant historical event 'Titanic'. They will learning about the different passengers on board, ordering events in chronological order and creating their own artwork to represent the ship 'Titanic' based on the artist 'Jim McDonald'. Please find below the parent information and home learning sheet.
Please read with your child as much as possible, every night would be great, but we do understand that sometimes this can be tricky. When you have read please write in your child's green book so we can see and this helps with the children receiving their reading certificates. Reading at home is really important to your child's reading development, when we read with the children we can tell the ones that have been practising and the ones that haven't. Reading is fundamental to everything, if you child struggles with reading they will find lots of the curriculum tricky as reading is everywhere!
Our PE days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school for these days. Please can you also ensure earrings are removed or your child is happy to take out their earrings by their themselves.
Tuesday is Movin Monkeez with Becky
Wednesday- Dragonfly PE with Miss Young/ Firefly PE with Mr Creagh-Barry
We aim to visit the library once a week, usually on a Thursdsay.
