Year 1/2 RM Learning Log
Friday 14th September 2018.
We have had another busy week in year 1/2 this week. Children have begun their Read Write Inc lessons and have been absolute superstars showing off their knowledge of sounds and writing some beautiful pieces. We also have some keen mathematicians who have been partitioning and learning all about place values, particularly tens and ones.
Perhaps the most exciting part of our week was the launch of our new topic: Ble ydy ni? (Where are we)? The children have amazed me with their creative ideas about what they would like to learn about and we are so excited for our learning journey linked to this topic.
On that note, as we are surrounded by a wonderfully rural and farming community the children have chosen to have a Farm Shop for their role play area. We are going to set this up early next week and would be incredibly grateful for any donations linked to this area such as: hay bales, picket fencing, a stall or farm shop goods.
You may have seen some of the pictures on Twitter from our forest school visit. We loved looking at the trees and what we can expect to happen during Autumn and how that is different to the other seasons. We also went on a shape hunt looking for natural shapes and thinking about their properties. Currently forest school is not too muddy but as the weather begins to change, please could all children remember wellies, long sleave tops and trousers and a warm coat and/or jumper for their Wednesday sessions.
There will be a change to the timetable stated in the previous letter: PE will now be on a Monday afternoon instead of a Thursday for the rest of this year. However, it is helpful to keep PE kits in school as we may decide to add extra sessions if appropriate.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Mrs. Morgan, Mrs. Martin and Miss Winstone.
These are some things you could do any time at home to help you learn....
Read your school book and anything else which interests you regularly!
Practise writing... You could write shopping lists, invitations, letters or even a diary so you can remember all the fun things you do on the weekends!
Practise spelling any words you find tricky and also red words...
Practice writing your numbers, counting, adding and subtracting. We will be checking these each week in our Beat That Test on a Thursday morning. Please help your child learn them so they can quickly recall the answer.
