Homework

Homework is over on the homework tab…..

Grammar books will be given out tomorrow. The children were having so much fun in computing there was not enough time to give them out this evening.

 

The Book Bears!

The Book Bears have arrived….. or rather they have left the classroom this evening for a week of story telling with some of the class.

The Book Bears are Grandad Book, Mummy Book and Baby Book and they travel to a different Year 2’s house each week. They are hoping to share lots of bedtime stories (or stories at any time of the day) and need to be brought back on Wednesday morning to feed back to me about their experiences……. ūüôā

They are travelling with some of the brand new books we have been bought specially and we know that the bears and the books will be well looked after. There is an option to complete a book review, however this is not an expectation but your choice. The focus is on the reading and sharing of stories. Reading the same story over and over again is a great way to build up fluency and develop comprehension.

We hope you and the Book Bears have a lovely time together!

Pyjama day reading with Year 5/6

We had a wonderful day yesterday sharing so many amazing books with each other. We spent a lot of time reading and thinking about what makes a good book.

Look at this selection!

We also paired up with the Year 5/6 children and shared stories together. If your child is not on these pictures then check out the year 5/6 blog page.

Reminder – pyjama day tomorrow!

Dear Parents,

Just a reminder of the email that was sent regards tomorrow.

On Tuesday 28th¬†January we will be having a ‚ÄėBedtime¬†Story Day‚Äô and your child is invited to come to school wearing their pyjamas and bring their favourite¬†bedtime¬†story (named if possible). We are also asking for voluntary donations on this day for money towards new stories for our book corners. The day will involve lots of stories as well as some buddy reading with classes joining up together. We look forward to sharing lots of our favourite stories.

Thank you

Algorithms with Mrs Sadler

A busy lesson in computing yesterday with Mrs Sadler. The children had to work out the route that the BeeBot had to take and produce the algorithm. The test was them programming the BeeBot with the algorithm and debugging if there were any errors.

My new favourite 5!

Here are my new favourite 5 books that the children have been selecting since just before Christmas. I chose all of these because they all share a common theme with Dear Greenpeace – letters!

These stories are all written as letters or have letters to read and open in some cases. The children have also been given a choice of book review to complete. They can still add a post it note comment or they can give a star rating and a few comments for another reader. Some wonderful engagement from the class as always!

                 

Emotions running high….

Following on from our ‘diamond 9’ work we begun to think about how we could be more persuasive, if we were in the position of the animals in our class text. They are trying to persuade the woodcutter to not chop the great kapok tree down and give him many reasons. We looked at the emotions they might have felt and started to add these to our writing to make it more emotionally charged and persuasive.
