Notes for Parents / Carers

Just a few reminders

To my lovely parents, just to remind you that BOOK BAGS come in on a Friday and will go home on a Monday.

If your child wants to bring their OWN SNACK in it must be a healthy choice and have their name on it please.

 

PE days are Wednesday and Friday where the children come to school with their PE kits on. 


Thank You 

Mrs Bentley

Week Beginning 4th May 

Well we have had a super week in Class 2, although a shorter week than normal we have been very busy. The children have really, really enjoyed finding, exploring and investigating lots of mini-beasts.  

A Creepy Crawley Week in Class 2

The children have been bringing in their mini-beasts from home for us all to look at. We have also found lots in school too! The Wormery is getting busier and busier and so is our Bug Nest too.

🪳🐝🐌We love our BUGS 🕷🪱🪲🕸🪰

To help the children understand temperature and the transformation from Liquid to Solid / Solid to Liquid we froze lots of mini-beasts. The children enjoyed the whole process especially smashing the ice!!!

Enjoying smashing the ice and discovering which mini-beast has been frozen🕷🐝

The children have been sorting lots of things in the classroom. They really had to look at the features of each mini-beast to sort them in their Numeracy work this week.

The children enjoyed sorting the mini-beasts using more than one criterion.

Using our sorting skills in lots of different ways.

The children are excited and are observing their beans growing. They have been making observational drawings of their beans and recording their growth in a diary.

Our beans are growing well. some even have leaves already!

The children will be continuing to use their sorting skills and next week they will be looking at temperature. The letter sound of the week is 'Z' and in Numeracy the children will be investigating number patterns and completing number sequences. 

 

Thank - you for the water bottles if they could be returned on Monday with the children this would be fantastic!!!

Have a wonderful weekend.

It has been absolutely wonderful to have all the children back in school.  They have been impressing me with what  they have been learning since the last time I saw them. I am so proud of all of you!!

They have been using the construction area to build Noah's Ark and count the animals in pairs of two.  They have also been outside with Mrs Lacey to find pairs of wellies, socks and gloves to count these in pairs of two.  They are very good at counting in twos and I am sure they could do this at home especially when counting socks!!
