What a fantastically busy week we have had once again in class 2! As well as all of our regular lessons, we have also participated in Be Bright Be Seen Day and Bonanza Creative’s carbon monoxide workshop. Both of these initiatives have been really useful in promoting safety awareness in different situations for our pupils as well as being really fun too. Thank-you for all of the fantastic homework responses that have been coming in on Seesaw, it really does help support and consolidate learning. Next week we will be undertaking our art unit so watch out for class 2’s very own art gallery!
As class 2 are completing their recount work in English this week, they are becoming experts at recount writing! In your homework book, can you write a recount on something that you do this week. This could be a trip to the park, a night at Beavers, sports events that you have watched or participated in or it could even jut be ‘my Saturday’ where you write about the things you did from getting up to going to bed.
Can you remember the following things in your recount and check your own work to make sure you have included them.
Capital letters and full stops
Past tense verbs written correctly
Events in time order
Noun expansion (adjectives) to add detail to make your work interesting
Correct letter formation and finger spaces
We will really look forward to reading all of your recounts.
This week’s spelling pattern is the sound /o/ represented by the letter ‘a’ after ‘w’ and ‘qu’. Read through these examples and think about the pattern you will need to follow to be able to spell words like these in your independent writing.
Reading record results
This week the children have worked really hard to improve their reading scores at home. As a result, 85% have managed to read three times or more in the last week. This is a great improvement on last week’s score of 75%. Big well done!
This week, we completed our history unit on farming over the past 100 years. The children have thoroughly enjoyed learning about how farming equipment has changed and what impact it has had on farming. As a treat this afternoon, we had a good look through some old documents and photos which tell part of the story of Brandesburton Primary School. The children took great pleasure trying to spot relatives! Can you spot anyone you know in the old photos?
