Holy Trinity CofE Primary School (Merton)

Holy Trinity C of E Primary School

YEAR 2

This Week:
 
 
Maths Week
The children have loved being Maths Detectives this week. We've done some measuring by working out which group/pair made the longest strip. We've solved mysteries using our knowledge of odds and evens, bar charts, addition and counting skills. We've also looked at shape and designed our own shape monsters. 
 
Homework Due in 
 
No homework over half-term!

 

Remember: you can play on Sumdog to earn points. Your login details can be found in your reading record/homework book. 

Note to parents: Logging into Sumdog at school is quite time consuming. If you could help your child to practise logging in to their account at home we would greatly appreciate it!

 

Spelling:  

We have decided that we will be teaching a spelling rule every 2 weeks which the children will practise and apply within the class (and at home) as it is important to see the application of these words in their writing. Along with the rule (which will be put on the website), we will be choosing some common exception words which they will also be assessed on. 
 

Next week is Maths Week; we will be completing our work on past tense by looking at irregular verbs. (Eg. sit-sat, swim-swam)

 

These are our spelling words for next week which will be assessed on 18th October 2019:

ate

wrote

drew

ran

rode

drank

Notices:
 
We will be changing books on Mondays and Thursdays only. We will send home their reading records so that you can include any books from home they are reading as well. 
 
Please can we ask that you record the book title (from home or school), the date as well as page numbers of the book. 
 
Thank you for attending the Parent's Meeting on Tuesday 10th September. Please find below the Powerpoint from the session along with the spelling words(and some suggestions of strategies to help your children learn their spellings) children will need to know by the end of Year 2.
 
Tissues
Any donations of tissues would be greatly appreciate.
 
Our PE days are Monday and Thursday for Badgers and Monday and Tuesday for Squirrels. Please make sure that all PE kits are labelled clearly.
