Year Two week ending 16/6/17

What a busy exciting week we have had. Forest School, Canada day with Miss Wilson and the BBC Ten pieces music day on Friday. We studied The Firebird by Stravinsky and started to make our own compositions based on it and with pastels we created our own idea of what the Firebird would have looked like. 
You can help at home by:
Maths: Encourage your child to complete the mymaths activities. These are valuable activities and tasks which usually reinforce the learning they have covered this year. Occasionally i will set an activity covering a concept we haven't spent much time on. Please use the linked lesson to help your child when they find these activities difficult. 
Topic: All the children will have received a letter with their pound to grow. It is fantastic to hear all their  ideas and to see their excitement and enthusiasm for this project. 
Literacy: Continue to read and to practise your child's spellings. 
have a lovely weekend,
Mrs Schartz and Mrs Peacock

Year Two week ending 9th June 2017

This week we have been learning about:

Maths: Doubling and halving 2 and 3 digit numbers, counting money, 
Literacy: Writing instructions and typing up documents on word
Topic: Creating bracelets and the newsletter to sell at the School Fete

You can help at home by:

Maths: new mymaths activities have been set. 
Project: Over the next six weeks, your child will be taking part in an enterprise project. As an introduction, i  gave the class £20 to start two projects which would raise money at the school Fete. We took the children through the whole process: gathering ideas, costing, ordering materials, estimating profits, making the product and selling the product. Next week we will be counting our takings, subtracting the £20 and working out our profit. From this profit we will be giving each child £1 which they will take home and 'grow'! The idea is that they go through the same process that we did in class but on their own at home. They will have the rest of the term to carry out the project and there will be a prize at the end of the term for the child who raises the most money.  Once they have completed their project they need to bring their profit into school and we will total it up. The children have decided that they will use the profit raised to buy something which they can take with them into Year Three. I will send out a letter next week with the pound coins but until then you can make a start on gathering ideas and costing it out. (Well done to those children who have already completed this stage - they came up with some wonderful ideas.) Good Luck!

Have a lovely weekend and well done to all on a fantastic Sport's Day. 
Mrs Schartz and Mrs Peacock
