Welcome to Class 2F with Miss Fletcher and Mrs Warman.

Spring 1

Tuesday 12th January

Pirates attacked Catshill First School on Wednesday 6th January when Year 2 held their Pirates Day. We were boarded by dozens of Year 2s wearing costumes and they were well-prepared for their day of being pirates!

They had to be accepted as part of the crew by writing Pirate poems that showed what they thought what values a pirate needed to have. Then they took part in a Maths addition treasure hunt before having to follow clues around the school to discover who actually stole their treasure. It turned out to be the wicked Pirate Nicholls from the Office!

   

Our pirates then starred in their own movie trailers which we hope to soon have premiere on this very website.

Thanks you so much to all the parents for helping with costumes and well done to all the children who made the day memorable and fun. We have plenty of topic left so look forward to our Pirate Poetry workshop on Thursday 14th January and hope you have fun becoming Home Learning Heroes with the tasks on the curriculum newsletter. 

We wanted to thank you for all your support this half term and let you know what our Topic is after half term so that you might get thinking about it.

 

Autumn 2

Our new Topic is called Towers, Tunnels and Turrets.

We already have our visit to Warwick Castle planned and have plenty of other exciting projects coming up that will explore stories set in castles, life in a castle, how to build a castle and what you might need to do to become a knight, prince or princess.

This is how you might help:

  • If you have any books or stories involving castles then have a read of them and send them in for our Topic corners.
  • If anyone has any castle toys that we could borrow to use as display and to enhance learning through role play then we would really appreciate them.
  • If you want to have a go at any castle artwork over the holiday then feel free to bring this in.

You will have more ideas on how to be a Home Learning Hero after half term.

Please ensure that your child is reading over the holiday and that Reading Records are completed.

Many thanks to all those have read with their child, completed home learning projects, came to Parents Evening and came to our Disgusting Morning.

Have a good holiday!

14th April 2015

This half term we will be exploring the City of London. We are very excited about our 'Royal Engagement' with Queen Elizabeth II tomorrow. The children have been researching her on the internet and practising their bows and curtseys. It is almost Her Majesty's birthday so perhaps we could bring balloons and cakes to celebrate!

February 2015

This half term, we are learning about weather and landscapes through our topic Splendid Skies. We began our topic with The Big Balloon Launch on Friday 13th February.

          

Unfortunately, the weather was awful and our balloons bobbed sadly around the playground!

But the teachers were able to let the balloons fly after school (maybe you saw them float past). There were a couple that got stuck in our Tulip Tree. Take a look on Monday to see if they are still there!

     

Please use the tools here to help with your learning at home

Numeracy

We are learning to solve problems using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We have recently learned how to jump in tens and ones along an empty number line.

How you can help

  • Encourage children to use the language of mathematics i.e. how many, altogether, multiply, divide, groups of, shared between

  • Use number cards to develop number recognition to 100.

  • Let them help with jobs which involve calculating, eg how much does it cost? How much more do we need?

  • Use Numeracy resources on this page to lock in the learning at home.

Useful Numeracy games:

Number bonds to 10, 20 and 100:

In Literacy we are looking at:

  • Phonics - Letters and sounds Phase 5

  • Tricky words

  • Reading

  • Fiction Stories

  • Recounts

How you can help

  • Look in the book bag each night and spend a few minutes reading a book in there. 

  • Use the Phonics pages in the reading record to practice the sounds - you could look for the sounds in their reading book together.

  • Use the Phonics resources on Class TF's web page to secure phonics knowledge at home.
