It was so nice to meet with you all this week at our Teacher Parent Conferences. Thank you for coming to discuss your child’s progress. I am always very proud to tell you all the wonderful things your children are achieving in school and believe that communication with parents is a wonderful thing in a child’s learning journey.
In Maths, the Year 1 students have worked very hard completing their unit on “Place Value to 20”. They sat the unit assessment today and I was very pleased to see how well they did. Next week we will begin our Unit “Place Value to 50”. The Year 2 students have been working on doubling and halving numbers, the 2 times table, division and odd and even numbers. It has been a challenging unit and we are a little behind schedule as I wanted to take time to review areas the children found difficult. Next week, we will finish up the Multiplication and Division Unit and sit the unit assessment. Afterwards, the children will start a new unit “Length and height” which is always very hands-on and fun to learn!
In English, we have been learning all about signs and directions and how they help us. We created our own signs and started looking at how instructions can help us to complete things well! In literacy rotations, I assessed the students to ensure they are on track and studying in the correct group. Next week, there will be a few groups changing colours.
In IPC, we are having a great time learning all about the history of toys. As you all saw on Wednesday they loved creating their own toys and have had fun playing with them. Next week, I have asked the children to bring in ONE of their favourite toys to share with the class. Please bring it in on Monday 26th, thank you! We will use them as part of our lesson so please pack them in their bags while you remember 🙂
In PE, we did some mindfulness yoga and today we enjoyed circuit training with Mr Dunn’s class. They worked hard so I expect they will sleep well tonight.
It has been a rainy week, I hope the weather gets better over the weekend so you can all enjoy some time outdoors!
Here are the pictures from our week. Enjoy!
Have a great weekend,
