Details of Culture & Religion Workshop Sept 2017

This term we are learning about Britain and Europe through our multicultural topic.

So far we have read about Paddington Bear, and begun to write stories based on his adventures. We were also lucky enough to have a visit from Daya Roberts, who taught us about Hindu culture, beliefs and food. We also tried typical Indian dancing.

Topic plan for the Autumn Term:

Library Visit: Last Friday (13th October) we had a lovely visit to the Library at Callington where we were given a guided tour and the chance to borrow a book. We all really enjoyed looking at the great range of books they have there, and some were able to use the computer to search for favourite topics.

Harvest Festival: This takes place this Friday (20th October) at the Hall at 2:30pm. We look forward to seeing you there.

Meet the Teacher took place on Monday, 18th September. If you have any further questions, please do speak to Mrs Reid, who will be happy to help.

Book bags need to be in school daily. If your child has finished their book please can their reading book and reading record be placed in the “I have finished my book” box which will be placed by the book bag box every morning. This will allow us to check your childs reading record and change their book as appropriate. It is expected across the school that your child reads at least 5 times a week.

High frequency words will soon sent home for you to practise with your child during the week. There will be on going assessments in class to track the children’s progress and new words will be sent home as appropriate.

Assessment and the ‘mastery’ curriculum.

At the recent ‘Meet the Teacher’ session we gave a presentation on the new arrangements for assessing your children following the removal of National Curriculum levels. At the same time we shared information about the ‘mastery’ approach to maths learning. For those who were unable to attend we have uploaded the presentation for you. In  addition, we have sent out the revised end of year expectations in reading, writing and maths. These are also uploaded for you to view online: Year 2

This term Class 2 are learning to recall their number bonds to 10 and then 20. To help learn these important calculations perhaps you might like to play an online number bond game.
