Verbs - Past Tense 14.12.2018

Thank you to all the children and parents of year 2 children for all of their hard work over the past two weeks of practising for the Christmas Show - A Midwife Crisis.

At this time of year there are so many 'germs' around and we know that the children have been trying to fight off infections and get into school because they are passionate about performing.

They were a real credit to their families!

This week is our European Languages Week and we have been focusing on Croatia. As part of our fact finding, we learned about different traditional Croatian playground games and went outside to play them too. We had great fun and discovered that some of the games were very similar to those we play usually in our playground, they just had different names!

Mrs Clyne and Mrs Perry have been extremely impressed with how quickly the children have settled into their classes.

 

Reading books and diaries are coming home this week.  Guided reading sessions have already begun.  During the reading workshop the children read books that are one level higher than the books they read at home.  Home readers should be an easy read.  If the children are interested in reading their own books, or books from the library, it is perfectly acceptable to note down the pages in the reading diary.  We will check the reading diaries every week and update the bookmarks, which are displayed in the classrooms.  Reading reward badges will be given out, once the bookmark is full.

 

Our shared texts so far are:

Willy the Wimp

and

Me and You

Both of these texts are written by Anthony Browne.
