This week the children have settled into a routine and have been an absolute credit to their parents and school. You would never know they had been off school for so long.
In 2F we have been busy learning about place value in maths including the vocabulary of bigger and smaller and ordering numbers. We have also revised the shape names of 2D shapes. If you get chance please play a verbal quiz with your child asking how many sides does a hexagon, pentagon and octagon have? I’m sure they will impress you.
We continued to look at the colour monster book and the our world book. The children enjoyed describing the reasons why the colour monster could be angry, happy, sad etc. We have been trying to extend our sentences to make them even more interesting.
In preparation for our superheroes topic on Friday we designed capes. Some of the excellent designs are shown on the attached photographs. They were amazing!
We are really looking forward to our superheroes topic so please have a look at home and see if you can recommend any good superhero tales.
On Monday we start street dance lessons and we are really looking forward to PE lessons again. A note about PE kits is attached in the newsletter.
Have a great weekend.
Week beginning 4th September
Welcome to 2F!
It was amazing to see all your smiling faces, shiny new uniform and have our classroom full once more. The children have settled beautifully and have been concentrating on having fun with their friends once more.
This week we have looked at the colour monster story and have discussed all the different emotions the monster had. From this we created our own monsters and filled our emotion jar worksheet. We also made masks which the children enjoyed taking home.
In class we have our own wallets with pencils, crayons and colouring books.
There is a brand new routine in school involving lots of washing of hands, “gelling”, keeping to our own bubble in the playground and down the corridors but we have all been amazing at it!
I cannot praise the children enough for the way they came in smiling on the first morning and have continued to smile and enjoy every moment in since.
Here are a few photographs of some of the activities we have completed this week.
Please make sure your photo consent is up to date. We have some completed but not all. It helps us to know which children can be used in photographs.
Have an amazing weekend and please please pass on to your child that Mrs Gill says you have been amazing!
See you all Monday!
