W/c 25th June 2018 - Wednesday-Friday - Mrs Donoghue

Class 2 Kudus
For week beginning: 25th June 2018

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

I hope you have all enjoyed the long weekend and are looking forward to another actioned pack week at school. 

The consent forms for Drusillas are starting to come in (or rather logged online).   I would appreciate it if you could get the consent forms signed, via school money, asap.

Have a good week.

Best wishes.

Mrs Donoghue

Online links which support learning in class:

Squeebles: – an excellent app to be used on ipads - £2.99

English

KM newspaper are currently running a writing competition entitled ‘To Infinity and beyond!’.  The theme is – “Which superhero would you like to walk to school with and why?’.  I thought the children would really enjoy taking part in this and therefore this week we will be planning, drafting and then writing a neat version to submit by the 2nd July 2018.  Please let me know if you have any objections to your child’s writing being entered.  For further information, please see http://www.kmcharityteam.co.uk/schools/writingcomp/.

Guided reading and/or individual reading continues to take place on a daily basis. We are also continuing with the spelling lists sent out at the beginning of the Summer Term.

Maths

World cup Maths!  I may not be an avid football fan but when I see an opportunity to engage children in learning I can be interested in anything!  So, this week’s focus will be a variety of activities to do with the World Cup.  This will include sequencing, fractions (football shirts and flags) and a variety of challenges.  I am also thinking about the children creating their own ‘dream team’ and practicing their addition and subtraction skills although I need to get up-to-date with the players first! 

R.E.

This week we will continue learning about Prophet Mahammad and retelling some of the stories he told.

Forest School

Forest School continues this week; I hope you all received Mrs Stanford’s email about the importance of being appropriately dressed, including always have waterproofs – rain or shine! 

Computing

The children will continue developing their touch typing/word processing skills this week.  Touch typing is a really important skill, especially in the technological world we live in.  Many secondary school students have laptops from as early as Y7 so it would be extremely beneficial if we can get children competent on a keyboard before they reach this stage.  There is a really lovely online touch typing programme called Dance Mat Typing, a little silly, lots of fun and something all children engage with.  The link is as follows: http://www.bbc.co.uk/guides/z3c6tfr  and it would be great if the children could try it at home.
