Holy Trinity CofE Primary School (Merton)

Holy Trinity C of E Primary School

YEAR 2

What Have We Achieved This Week:
 
This week the children have been reading 'Katie and the British Artists' by James Mayhew. We have been looing at many famous paintings mentioned in the story and writing setting descriptions and diary entries as characters entering the paintings.
 
In Maths this week we solved a range of word problems involving length and money.  We also used the bar model to help us solve a range of multiplication and division problems.
Homework:
 
English:
We would like you to write a short story or poem (maximum of 500 words) for the Young Writers competition on the theme of 'Monsters'. Your poem or story can be handwritten or typed. Have fun!
 
Mathletics:
You have been assigned some a revision task on Mathletics.
 
 
Spellings will be tested on Thursday 26th April

Notices:
 
Reading books:
Due to Star Reader assessments the children will be getting their new reading book on Monday.
 
 
Uniform/PE Kits
Please can you make sure that all your child's belongs such as uniform, jumper, water bottle to PE Kit are labelled before school starts as this will help us find the owners quickly if anything gets lost throughout the school day. Thank you
 
Snacks
If you wish to provide your child with a snack, please ensure that it is fruit or vegetable based as we are a healthy school and would like to promote this. 
 
General
Children are to be collected from the MUGA at 3.20pm.
If it is raining the children should be collected from the main playground entrance. 
We encourage the children to bring in items related to our topic for show and tell every Friday for both classes. This is not on a rota basis and children are welcome to bring something each week.
 
Water bottles
These must be brought into school daily for we believe it to be a great support to growing minds! There are now a lot of children who tend to forget their bottles and unfortunately we do not have the time in class or adult support to continually fill up jugs.
 
PE Kit
Children will need their full PE kits on a Thursday for Squirrels and a Tuesday & Thursday for Badgers. If children do not have the correct kit they will be unable to take part in the activities.   If children cannot participate during a PE lesson, please can you kindly send an email or note notifying your class teacher.  Thank you.
 
Reading books
The children will now move over to the school's Accelerated Reader programme. This works slightly differently to the Oxford Reading Tree and so all children will need to be reassessed based on this scheme.  
 
Tissues
We would be very grateful for any donations of tissues for runny noses. Many thanks.
