Holy Trinity CofE Primary School (Merton)

Holy Trinity C of E Primary School

YEAR 2

What Have We Achieved This Week:
 
We celebrated Arts & Humanities week by exploring the Seven Wonders of the World.  Each year group were given a different wonder to learn about.  We were given Christ the Redeemer as our wonder.  We have had great fun learning out Brazil and it's breathtaking sights.  We learnt about Christ the Redeemer and created out own mini statues using air-drying clay. 
 
What a fun, cross-curricular week it has been! 
 
 
Homework:
Due every Wednesday
 
Maths homework

Spellings
To ensure phonics and spelling is embedded, we will no longer be sending home spelling books.  Words of the week will be displayed on the website for you to practise at home.  Alongside these, the children will be assessed on spelling rules they have learnt.  This may take the form of a quick spelling test in school and also through application in their writing tasks.
 
The spelling rule for next week is:  Using the suffix -er  (revise)
Examples: cooker, reader
 
Words of the week:
Exception words are words in which the English spelling code works in an unusual or uncommon way. They are not words for which phonics 'doesn't work', but they may be exceptions to spelling rules, or words which use a particular combination of letters to represent sound patterns in a rare or unique way.
 
things, new, after, wanted, eat  (revise)

Uniform/PE Kits

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.
