Always Aiming High – Anelu’n Uchel O Hyd

Class 6 Mr Williams

Today (20.11.19) in Forest School we have been using natural objects (leaves and twigs) to double and halve. We also wanted to find out if the tallest people have the largest footprints. It was all good fun and a great way to learn. smiley

This week we have been busy doubling and halving numbers. In the corridor we tried to double the spots on a ladybird. The children have been busy making junk models too. We also had our flu shots. Not an injection but a squirt up the nose. It didn't hurt and the children were really brave.

This week we have been thinking about Remembrance day. On Monday we had a two minute silence and Mr. Manford played "The Last Post" on the cornet. We have been writing acrostic poems and have produced a lovely display that not only shows poppies but also helps us to count in 2s, 5s and 10s. We have also had a debate "Should children have to go to school?" Very interesting. smiley Our new topic is called "Locomotion" and we have started a new display, showing things we already know about the topic and things we would like to learn. 

 

We are also learning how to divide. We have been dividing by 2. We know that if you divide by 2 and there is 1 left over that must be an odd number. We are learning an Odd and Even rhyme. You might want to practise it at home.   

2 4 6 8 zero even numbers you should know.

1 3 5 7 9 these are odd all the time.

                   Techniquest

Today we had a great day at Techniquest in Wrexham. We did lots of science investigations, found out about the jungle, learned about light and dark, walked through a mirror maze and used different construction kits to build models. You can see how one boy from class has built a model of the Houses Of Parliament. The guides at Techniquest said the children listened really well and answered lots of questions. Da iawn plant, you all get 5 Dojo points. laugh

Today (7.11.19) we had a visit from Food Standards Agency. They put on a play to tell us about the importance of washing our hands properly before eating. They also told us how important it is to clean the area where we prepare food and how we should store foods properly in order to make sure we don't get poorly. The children liked seeing the characters in the play and remembered a lot of information.

Today (6.11.19) in our Forest School session, Mr. Price (Forest School Leader) lit a fire and we all toasted marshmallows. He had a long talk to the children about safety around the fire, how to enter and leave the fire circle safely and how to sit correctly on the log seats and kneel correctly when toasting the marshmallows.the marshmallows were DELICIOUS and Mr. Price was very impressed with how well the children listened and their behaviour near the fire.

Today we read a story called "You're Called What?" by Kes Gray and Nikki Dyson. (Thank you Gwyneth for bringing the book to school). The children loved hearing the weird and wonderful names of real creatures. The children asked if we could put the names of these animals on the whiteboard so they can use the internet to find out more about them.

2/10/2019   It was Forest School time in Class 6 today. We went outside and warmed up by splashing in the puddles and walking in the mud. Great fun. That's what wellies are made for laugh.

Then we did some bark rubbings and sorted things we found on the yard into natural materials and man made materials. The children were really good at this. Some of the children even found a couple of spiders to look at.

Well done to all the children who scored 1000+ points on Spellodrome this week. Those children all got a dojo.
This week we are learning about measure. We are estimating and then measuring objects in class, using rulers and centimetres. Outside we are measuring short and long items and are using metre rulers and trundle wheels.

We are also looking at pet carriers. Last week each group designed a pet carrier and this week we are making them. We are also carrying out a science investigation to find out which material would be the best to put in the bottom of a pet carrier. We need to know which is the most absorbent. We are using puppy pads, tissue paper and a nappy. The children are trying to predict which will be the best.

Just a few little reminders - 

 

P.E Days - We have P.E on a Tuesday and a Friday, please make sure P.E kits come into school on a Monday and then they will go home on a Friday.

 

If your child has their ears pierced, please ensure they are removed on PE days.

 

Reading books - Reading books will be changed on a Monday and a Thursday, please aim to read with your child every night. Remember, now we are in Year 2 there is a lot more emphasis on comprehension, therefore, your child may be asked to read their book more than once. Please ensure reading books/diaries are in school every day as we hear your child read at different points during the week.

 

Homework - We will continue our Learning Logs in year two and they  will be sent home on a Friday each week and need to be returned on a Thursday. 

 

Daily reading is expected and also Spellodrome. In regard to Spellodrome, if your child gets 1000+ points in a week then they will be awarded a DoJo and a MASSIVE smile from Mr. Williams! If they get between 500-999 points they will get a BIG smile. If they get less than 500 points then unfortunately they will lose a DoJo! We are currently setting up the new Spellodrome classes so don't worry, your child cannot complete it just yet!

 

Forest Schools - Fortnightly - please see school website for timetable, our first session is on Wednesday 18th September! Children can come to school in forest school clothes, please send your child's uniform into school that day in a bag! Please remember a clean pair of shoes too!

 

As in year 1, the children will have a 'continuous snack' time, this means that they can have their snack during any part of the morning when they would like it. Unless your child has paid to have school fruit this half term, please send them into school each day with a piece of fruit to eat for their snack. Please label all snack containers.

 

Water bottles - Children will need a water bottle to have in their classrooms, please make sure it has their name on. We will fill them with fresh water each morning and send them home on a Friday. Please return bottles to school the following Monday.

 

Hot days - please ensure your child is sent to school wearing suncream and that they bring in a hat with their name on! Likewise on colder days a warm coat and hat is recommended!

 

Clothing - Please could you ensure all clothes are labelled clearly.

 

This year at Ewloe Green, we are trialling a new cursive handwriting scheme. The document below shows the formation animals we will be using and rhymes that we will use to assist the children to learn and remember the correct letter formation. We will be teaching the children a letter a week in the order of the letters on the document. This half term we will begin by working through the 'ladder' family. 

 

In our indoor p.e. sessions we are learning to make different animal shapes with our bodies. The shapes are called Happy Cat, Angry Cat, Pike, Crab and Scorpion. The children below are trying some of these shapes.

Today we had a lady from Dogs’ Trust who came to talk to us about how to look after dogs and some rules to think about when we are around dogs. She brought in some props to help us remember. Some children even got to pretend they were dogs.

In our p.e. session today we have been rolling balls. We had a competition to see who could roll a ball the furthest. Can you tell who won? He was able to roll a ball 31 metres. WOW!  We know it was 31 metres because we used a trundle wheel to measure.

This week (week beginning 16th September) we have been doing a comprehension activity about looking after a hamster, we have been writing descriptions of animals, thinking about an animal we would like to have in the world to solve litter and recycling issues and we have been doing self portraits as well as typing up a description of a friend in class, saying why we think that person is special. Our classroom looks lovely, thanks to the hard work of the children and Mrs.Parker, our classroom assistant.

We are having a really busy week at school. The children have been reading and writing numbers within 100, writing an ending to the story of Mog and the V.E.T, learning the Welsh names for some pets and in Collective Worship we have been talking about memories from Reception and Year 1. They have also been thinking about what makes their friends special and we will be typing these next week. We have also been looking at pictures of skeletons and trying to guess what animal they belong to and been thinking about the class rules. We are also starting some Spellodrome work at school and all the children now have their log in details in the back of their reading logs. The children will be able to use these from next week. smiley

 

Most of the children have brought back their Learning Logs and have covered them with some fantastic pictures, stickers and photos. Well done Class 6.

We are Class 6. We have settled back into school really well. We are getting used to the new routines and new things to do in our class. This week we have been doing some writing, looking at numbers to 100 and reading some new reading books. Mr. Williams is very pleased with how well we are doing and how clever we are. smiley
