Spelling w/c 2.12.19

The 6 high frequency spellings that we are going to focus on this week are –

path

son

clothes

caught

children

Saturday

As well as this, this week’s spelling focus (unit 12) is – adding the suffix -ed

Rule: If a word ends in 2 consonants, just add -ed. If a word ends in a short vowel sound + a consonant, we double the consonant before adding -ed.

This includes words such as: painted, hunted, hugged, dropped, patted, batted, clapped.

Please take the time to practise these spellings with your child at home throughout the week. You can practise the words with -ed as well as the 6 high frequency words.

Thank you for your continued support.

Our great week!

Snowdrops have had a fantastic week this week! We’ve celebrated ourselves on celebrating me day, we’ve worn our odd socks and we’ve worn our pyjamas today to raise money for Children in Need!
The children have thoroughly enjoyed their week of activities!
We’re all looking forward to next week now!

Read Write Inc Spelling

As your children are now in Year 2 they will be completing the Read Write Inc programme. This is a daily session where the children complete different activities to help them learn the different spelling rules and patterns. Each week we will complete a new unit. Last week was unit 1. This week we will be completing unit 2 (this also corresponds with where the children write their words to learn in their log books). Each week we have 6 red words (high frequency words) which are posted on the class page every Monday. On a Monday and Friday, the children practice these words and if they get any wrong they record them in their log books to be learnt at home over the weekend. As they are recorded on the class page on a Monday you can also practice these words with your children throughout the week. As well as this, each child chooses 6 words to learn that follow the weekly spelling rule. Overall, any words that are in your child’s log book for the current week’s unit need to be practised over the weekend at home. Each child will have different words in their log books, as it is individual to them and their needs. Log books will be sent home on a Friday and need to be returned on a Monday ready to start the next unit.

If you have any more questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Many thanks,

Mrs Owen

Next week Forest school will be on Monday afternoon. Please bring in suitable footwear such as wellies, boots or trainers to change into. It can get quite muddy! We have water proof trousers and coats for every child to wear on top of their school uniform but for future sessions later on in the term, if it is a really cold day please send in an extra jumper/socks if you would like to. If girls are wearing dresses or skirts could you please send in a pair of trousers, leggings or joggers as legs need to be covered.

Many thanks

Snowdrops morning routine

Hello!

We have had a great start to reception here in Snowdrop class. The children are all settling in well and making lots of new friends.

I am pleased to say that the children are adapting to the routines within school well. To aid this I would like to ask that you encourage your children to come into class by themselves in the mornings.

As I am sure you can imagine, it can get very busy in the mornings with parents and children all inside the cloakroom! Please try to encourage your children to hang their things up on their peg by themselves and then return to you outside for a quick cuddle if needed before settling into the school day.

Thank you for your co-operation.

A big well done to all of Ladybird class who have settled in brilliantly this week. I am so pleased with how you have started off your year in Year 2!

Homework this week is reading. Please remember to comment in your child’s reading record if you have listened to them read. There will be a spelling post on this page on Monday to let you know our spelling focus for the week ahead.

Have a great weekend,

Welcome to Ladybird Class!

Welcome to Ladybird Class!

We have all had a great first day back! All children have been sent home today with a reading book and reading record. They have been given the same colour book as they were on in July in class 1 . This will probably change over the next week or so as we get the chance to read with each child and assess which colour is now the correct book for them. Please bring your reading book and reading record into school everyday. Please try and read at home as much as possible. We have a reward system in class, where children get a raffle ticket each time they read at home. At the end of the week, the child whose name is picked out of the bag gets a prize. Obviously the more they read, the better the chance they have of winning!

Homework is set on our website on a Friday. Spellings are posted on a Monday. This will start next week. No homework this week, just reading.

PE kits are needed on a Tuesday and Wednesday and Forest school clothes will be needed as requested on the class page. The day can change due to different things going on in class. Forest school will not be happening this week.

Thank you, Mrs Owen
