Miss Mandelson and Mrs Clegg - 13 Mar 2020

Stepping Back in Time
After the discovery of some old keys, the children have been excited to embark on a new topic learning all about castles.  In English they began by listening to a description of a castle set to music before drawing and writing about the castle that they visualised.  This gave Miss Mandelson a good idea about what the children already know about castles as a starting point.  The children have enjoyed looking at a range of books about castles before sorting them according to whether they are fiction or non-fiction.

In English with Mrs Clegg we have started our unit on poetry.  We started by listening to 'On the Ning Nang Nong' by Spike Milligan.  The children were very amused by it and had lots of great ideas about its meaning!  We then worked in groups to learn a verse of the poem and perform it to the rest of the class.  There was a lot of giggling!

In Geography, we have started to investigate castles which can be found in our local area.  The children can already recognise and name quite a few examples in North Yorkshire and the older children have even had a go at plotting some of these on a map.  The younger children have shown great enthusiasm for turning our role-play area into a castle and are very proud of their efforts!

For this week's maths, the Y2 children have rounded up their work on division by comparing the methods of 'sharing' and 'grouping'.  The consensus between them was that they found grouping a more simple way of dividing when using 'jottings' to help them.  The younger children have been using lots of vocabulary relating to addition and subtraction as they have used props to act out number stories then record what they have done in number sentences using the +, - and = signs.

In Science, we have enjoyed observing our 'beans in a bag'.  Some have sprouted roots and shoots, it's very exciting!  You can see them hanging near our classroom window.  We are looking forward to seeing how they change next week.

We have continued our work on the 'zones of regulation' and the children are becoming very adept at naming feelings and categorising them according to which they zone they belong to.  They have started to apply this to how characters in books are feeling, as well as to their own feelings.  We have also continued to follow guidelines relating to handwashing and hygiene but are striving to do this in a low-key way so that children do not worry about the situation.  We are all finding that our hands are becoming quite dry and some parents have sent in handcream for their child(ren) to combat this.  Please feel free to do this if you think this would be helpful.

****Bibi has lost a pair of black 'Next' jogging bottoms.  Please could you check at home that your child hasn't put them in their PE bag by mistake?  Thank you.***
