3rd - 13th Sept

Welcome back!

In maths we are working on place value and numbers to 100.

In English we are reading the book 'Beegu' by Alexis Deacon, a story about a little alien creature who is lost on earth.

We have been recapping the sound families for the phonemes 'ai', 'ee' and 'igh', thinking of different words containing the sound and how to spell it.

We have also been working on the Year 1 and Year 2 common exception words, checking which of these the children can read and spell. We will be sending the words, children need to learn, home for spelling homework.

The children really enjoyed trying to make as many new words as they could from the phrase 'Year Two Explorers' and we were surprised with how many different words they came up with.

We have been talking about having a positive attitude and Growth Mindset and how we can learn from mistakes to make our brain grow.
