It has been lovely to see everyone again. The summer term can be lots of fun, and I’m looking forward to being able to do more outdoor learning, sports, gardening and so on with Yew Class.
We’ve had such an eventful first week back, with our literary visitors who have championed the cause of reading for pleasure in such a splendid way. Sarah McIntyre had KS1 in the palm of her hand for almost an hour when she read her bestselling book, ‘Grumpycorn’. This was followed by a masterclass in drawing ‘Grumpycorn’......but with a twist. Yew Class painted their illustrations, then made up their own stories based on the above. We had Chipocorn, Pizzacorn, Chicken Nuggetcorn and many more. The work will be displayed in our classroom, so feel free to take a peep through the window.
This half term is going to be jam packed with learning:
English: Literacy and Language or RWI (depending on groupings)
Maths: Measurement: height and length (using a ruler)
Science: Changing Materials – sand to glass etc.
Humanities: History – The Ancient Egyptians
RE: ‘Good News’ message that Christians believe Jesus brings
Computing: ‘Kapow’ - creating media with motion
PSHE: thinking about how we can be the best we can be at school and in the community
Music: Daily learning and singing short songs
We will be doing art each week, but need to check resources and confirm plans. Please excuse this short blog entry: it’s been a busy week. I will have more news and information for you next time. Until then, please encourage your child to read daily. Those on Accelerated Reader should quiz and change books regularly; there will be time to do this during the school day.
Enjoy the long weekend!
Hello Year 2 parents and carers,
What a half-term we've had! The children have done some great learning and have settled in as a Year 2 class very well! I'm proud to see their progress, creativity, and care for each other.
As I'm sure you'll have seen in Mr. Finch's email, unfortunately I won't be able to come back to Chagford Primary after Easter. I know it's a shame for the children to have to go through yet another transition. Luckily, they'll have a known and friendly face in Mrs. Fitzgerald, who I know will offer them the help they need.
I wanted to thank you for all your support during this short time when we have worked together!
