Dove Weekly Update 14/6/24

We have had a great week in Doves!

In English, we have been researching and planning our tourist leaflet about the UK. We discovered many interesting facts that the children will be using in their writing next week. This has linked to our topic work about the different parts of the UK.

In Maths we have worked hard on our times table facts and how to apply them in other areas of maths.

In Science, we have started looking at what we mean by a healthy lifestyle.

In Y2 the children need to be confident with the 2, 5, and 10x's tables. Please keep practicing them at home. In order, reverse order, and random order. We have also looked at questions like __ x 2 = 16. Next week we will have a times table quiz based on the 2x’s table

Reminder: Next Tuesday is due to be our postponed Interhouse Cycling Event. All children need a bike or scooter (not an electric one!) and every child must have a helmet. Please make sure that bikes are useable with seats / handlebars at the correct height, tires pumped up and the brakes are working. 

Spellings are on Seesaw and are all words that use an apostrophe to contract the words e.g. couldn't. 

Finally a huge thank you to all of you for your kind words and support during our OFSTED inspection.

Have a great weekend.

This week we have enjoyed learning about ancient Greek theatres – the comedies, the tragedies and the rather rude satyrs! We developed our historical enquiry skills by looking at the sources of evidence that still survive from the period, and using them to help us understand the importance of theatre in ancient Greek lives. We linked this to our Art & Design lesson, producing some striking theatre masks using charcoal.

In maths we have continued data handling, interpreting line graphs of different types, followed by duel bar charts and combined data sets. Excellent progress made all-round.

In English, we have been developing our etymology skills, taking ancient Greek root words and using them to understand the meaning of more modern unfamiliar words.

We have started our new unit of rounders in games, and we will be starting our dance work on Monday – get ready to throw some shapes, Kestrels!

And then there was the nice little midweek treat – a visit from Ofsted! There was a lot asked of our children in terms of showing work to the inspector and answering his questions, and they really gave of their best when he came to observe our lessons. I was incredibly proud of the way in which they stepped-up, and the inspector was so impressed he gave our class an extra break time! Well done Kestrels!!

Just a quick reminder that Interhouse Cycling will now be on Tuesday. Please may children bring a bike or scooter if they have one (please do not worry if they don’t), along with a helmet. If children are able to bring a bike or scooter, please may they leave it on the blue MUGA before school (not in front of the class room).

Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Jarvis

We have had a great week in Robin Class!

In English, we have been researching and planning our tourist leaflet about the UK. We discovered many interesting facts that the children will be using in their writing next week. This has linked to our topic work about the different parts of the UK.

In Maths we have worked hard on statistics where we interpreted and created our own block diagram and pictograms.

In Science, we have started looking at what we mean by a healthy lifestyle.

The children need to be confident with the 2, 5, and 10x's tables. Please keep practicing them at home. In order, reverse order, and random order. We have also looked at questions like __ x 2 = 16. 

Next week we will looking at times table fact families for the 2 and 5x’s tables and how to apply these in other areas of maths.

Reminder: Next Tuesday is due to be our postponed Interhouse Cycling Event. All children need a bike or scooter (not an electric one!) and every child must have a helmet. Please make sure that bikes are useable with seats / handlebars at the correct height, tires pumped up and the brakes are working. 

Spellings are on Seesaw and we will test these on Monday as usual.

Finally a huge thank you to all of you for your kind words and support during our OFSTED inspection.
