Oak Learning Blog – Autumn 2 Week 2

By Debbie Barlow on Sunday, November 18, 2018 in Year 2. No Comments

Hello everyone,

Welcome to this week’s Oak Learning Blog! Read on to find out what we  have been up to this week…

The children have been busy as usual. In English we have been writing a report about the First World War. The children have found out all about trenches, food and uniforms and how tough life was for soldiers. They have looked at conjunctions and commas in list sentences and put these altogether to write some excellent reports. Maybe they can tell someone at home what you have learnt about the war.

We have been looking at money in pounds and pence in Maths. The children have been counting and solving problems using all the UK notes and coins. Can you count up some money at home?

We enjoyed celebrating Diwali Day on Wednesday by learning about the story of Rama and Sita and making our own Rangoli art with Neemita.  The children produced some lovely colourful and creative work. In Jigsaw we thought about anti-bullying week and made some odd socks as a part of a whole school project to represent how unique we all are and about respecting each other’s differences. In History we watched the 2014 Heritage film Bournville Remembers which can be viewed on You Tube made by our school to find out all about Bournville in the war. The children were fascinated by this and it is worth another watch at home.

It is Y2’s Celebration Assembly on Thursday. If your child is receiving a certificate they will have received an invitation in their book bags already but we will happily share any out of school badges, medals and trophies awarded recently if your child wishes to bring them in.

Sumdog homework has been set for the week and new homework sheets are now in place for all children who have sent in their red books. This week we will also be sending home individual target sheets informing parents of your child’s next learning steps in reading , writing, maths and behaviour. These can be found in the red homework book so please make sure it is in your child’s book bag.

Thank you for reading, see you on Monday!

Love Mrs Barlow xxx
