Year 1/2

Year 1/2 RM Learning Log 

22nd March 2019.

This week we have been learning all about temperature and temperature related vocabulary in maths.  The children made their own thermometers and did an excellent job reading them.

In our topic work we have been learning all about plants.  We have planted different flowers and vegetables in our courtyard.  I wonder which ones will grow first?  We have also been labelling different parts of the plants.  I was so impressed by the children's drawings of the different plants.  They really observed the shape and colour of each plant and drew a fabulously accurate picture of them before labelling the different parts.  

In Welsh we have been learning Ble rwyt ti'n mynd?  We were lucky enough to have a Welsh visitor come and play some games with us to help us learn the language pattern.  As always, the children were brilliant.  

Just a reminder that it is our class trip to Magor Marsh on the 27th March.  The trip costs are detailed on ParentPay alongside a tickbox asking for permission to attend.  If there are any parents with a school registered DBS check available on the 27th March to help chaperone, please let me know.  Children can come to school dressed in warm clothing, wellies and a waterproof coat.  They won't need uniform as we will be having our normal Forest School session in the afternoon.  

Finally, we have changed our PE day to a Thursday.  Please could you ensure that your child brings in their PE kit on this day, if they have not left them in school.  Forest School is still a Wednesday afternoon, again, it would be much appreciated, if all children could bring in suitable clothing for our Forest School activities.  

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Mrs. Morgan, Mrs. Martin, Miss. Winstone and Miss Donovan (student teacher).

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.
