Money! Money! Money!

In Maths we are currently learning about money. We are finding that the children are having difficulty with identifying coins and understanding the relationship between pounds and pence. We know that we are living in an increasingly cashless society, however it is important that the children have an awareness and have experience using money in everyday situations. Perhaps Saturday's fair could be an ideal opportunity to put these skills into practise?!

To find out what we've been learning recently ask your child...

  • to show you the method of using a number line to add and subtract 1 digit and 2 digit numbers crossing the 10's
  • to show you a; bar model, whole part model, tens frame or any other diagram for a given calculation
  • to partition numbers  to 10 quickly (e.g 7=1+6/2+5/3+4) (we are surprised with how many children can not do this!)
  • to tell you their version of a fable, including which fable they based it on, which characters they used and what the moral of their fable was
  • to tell you whether a given object is living, dead, non-living or had never lived
  • to explain what life processes are (using MRS GREN). Can they remember what each letter stands for?
  • to explain who Nelson Mandela was and tell you all about his life
  • to tell you which songs they are learning for the Christmas Presentation

Please can you help your child to write their name and address correctly too

During our English lessons this half term we will be writing letters. Please can you help your child to learn how to correctly spell their full name and address.

We have been having some problems with the number of rucksacks in school. The cloakrooms are small and the children are struggling to move around in them and find their things. As a result we would ask that rucksacks do not come into school unless the children have an after school club that requires a change of clothes. I had a look today and many of the rucksacks were empty. Books bags are adequate for reading books only and they can carry in water bottles and snacks and put them in the correct place within the classroom. This will hopefully alleviate some of the problems we have in the cloakrooms. 

Many thanks, Y2 Teachers

 

 

Reminder - Snacks Permitted in School (Break times and after school)
