Welcome to Doves Year 2 2019 2020
Class Teacher: Mrs Fisher
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Wilson and Mrs Smith
6.4.20 Good morning! It is now technically the Easter holidays but I am still adding some new ideas and links here for you all to keep you busy and help out hopefully. Don't forget these restrictions will be over soon, so it's really important not to go out or meet friends until we are all allowed to again- I can't wait to see you all when we can.
1.4.20 Hope you are all well, and home and staying safe!
We are still thinking about all of you and missing you lots and lots!! ... but we are glad that you are able to keep safe at home and look forward to seeing everyone when we are able to.
Keep washing your hands! and don't forget to stay a safe (2 metre) distance apart when you are out with family for your daily exercise!
Each week, I am adding little bits for you to try at home, but the most important things are to:
-keep reading, -keep counting forwards and backwards to 100 and beyond, -keep practising your number bonds and times tables, -keep practising your spellings- and try to keep healthy and fit!
Don't forget to keep practising your counting! Can you count forwards and backwards from any number up to 200?
e.g. Forwards: 13... 14,15,16,17,18
121... 122, 123, 124, 125
Backwards: 56... 55, 54, 53, 52, 51, ..
102... 101, 100, 99, 98, 97, 96
Well done to Doves class who won the attendance certificate for the first week back!
Let's hope we win it many more times this year.
Doves have been learning the story of the Hare and the Tortoise this week and have read two different re-tellings of this fable by Aesop, as well as learning a story/ song version.
We have also been thinking about the place value of two-digit numbers in maths, as well as using hoops to explore space and coordination in P.E. today.
The children across the school showed compassion and understanding in their work about Remembrance and World War 1.
The children in Doves class worked on two different stories which were set in World War One, as well as sharing information texts about Remembrance Sunday. We wrote two booklets, collaboratively, about World War One and about Remembrance, and were pleased to be able to offer these to family members who could attend our school open afternoon. We have also now sent these home for you to share together.
