Our Assembly

As you know our class assembly is Friday 1st December at 12 noon in the theatre, it would be lovely to see as many parents as possible. All the children are practising hard both at school and home, thank you.

We are doing the Christmas Story, which the children are very excited about. If your child is a narrator they can wear their own clothes. If they are a character e.g. an angel, shepherd, Mary, King etc, if they could have suitable clothes for their character that would be brilliant, if you need some help, please let me know and I will try to sort something out. Please can you ensure the costumes are in school in a named bag by Tuesday 28th November, thank-you.

Homework 13th November

Our spelling rule for Wednesday 20th November is: We double the consonant to words of one syllable which end in a single consonant after a single vowel letter before we add "ed" to create past tense.

Stop
stopped
drag
dragged
hop
hopped
skip
skipped
rob
robbed
clip
clipped
drop
dropped
grab
grabbed
grin
grinned
shop
shopped
Write five sentences using some of the past tense words.

Our mental maths questions were:
Double
34
22
58
217
123
Halve
14
48
62
164
146
Next week we will have a times table test on 2,3,4,5 and 10 times tables, so keep practising!
Our maths homework sheet is linked to the measuring work we have been covering this week. Don't forget to look on the Abacus Website and have a go on the new games Miss Julie has added for you!

In our TEFL lessons we have been working on the verb "to be"
I am
He is
She is
It is
We are
You are
They are
He is going on holiday. We are playing basketball. She is beautiful.
Homework: Write five sentences using the verb "to be" correctly. This should be handed in on Thursday 30th November.

Wednesday, 8 November 2017

Homework  8.11.17
The new spelling words are verbs which when we use the past tense we have to change the letter "y" for an "i" before we add ed:
carry carried
fry fried
try tried*
empty emptied
marry married
cry cried*
copy copied*
bury buried*
spy spied*
hurry hurried
The children should write 5 sentences using the * words for next Wednesday.

The mental maths was on the inverse of the 4x table. The questions were:
24 divided by 4
44 divided by 4
12 divided by 4
32 divided by 4
4 divided by 4
48 divided by 4
36 divided by 4
16 divided by 4
8 divided by 4
20 divided by 4

For next Wednesday the children need to practise their doubles and halves. e.g. double 25 = 50, half 16 = 8 etc.
Thank you.

Dear 2A,
Just to let you know that Miss Julie had to return to the UK during our short break due to family circumstances. I will be taking the class in her absence and hopefully Miss Julie will be back in school later this week. Many thanks for your understanding.

Class Assembly

Our Class Assembly will be held on Friday 1st December at 12 noon, in the Chaucer Theatre, we hope as many parents as possible will be able to join us. We are doing the Nativity, which is a very special story all about Christmas. All the children are involved and I will send the scripts home soon so that all the children can learn their words and the song words too. Some children will need costumes and I will let you know very soon what your child needs to wear, thank you in advance for your help in this matter.
