w/c 4th June - Wednesday -Friday (Mrs Donoghue)

Class 2 Kudus
For week beginning: 4th June 2018

I will be in class on Monday afternoon, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday this week.

I am writing this before the half term break so if you are reading this early, I hope you have a great time and if the night before we return, I hope you have had a great time!

I cannot believe that we are on the downhill run!  We have had a fantastic year so far and the children have made great progress both in their academic achievement and socially; they all work together beautifully and have strengthened lovely friendships and mutual respect for each other.  They are all in a good position to be moving onto Y3.... but not yet!

We will be continuing with Forest School next term however the groups will be swapping around.  Field Maple will be in the morning and Willow Group will be in the afternoon.

Best wishes.

Mrs Donoghue

English

We will be looking at the features of an outstanding character description this week and the children will have a go at creating their own using descriptive language to bring their character alive!  

Reading Comprehension – the children will continue to read straight after lunch on a daily basis;  they will also take part in a group reading session;  this is based around texts which typically takes 60 seconds to read before discussing questions relating to the text.  

Spelling  You will find a new spelling list in your child’s book bag.  This week, they will be tested on  Friday.  As before, we will looking for those words to be spelt correctly in their writing rather than in a list so please help us by dictating sentences with the keywords in.  Thank you.

Maths

We will be concluding our work on 2D and 3D shapes by comparing the similarities and differences.    We will then start revisiting addition and subtraction including reasoning.

R.E.

We will continue learning about the Islamic Faith, particularly Prophet Muhammad and the story of the cat.
