Over the next half term our English focus is on 'The Enormous Turnip'.
This week we have been looking at describing turnips using adjectives.
On Friday we met a Farmer! We got to ask all kinds of questions about their farm. They told us all about an enormous turnip they had on their farm that they just couldn't get out! The farmer had to get help from all kinds of people - once they got the turnip up they had turnip soup for dinner! It lasted weeks!
We are starting the year by recapping the sounds you learnt in year 1. We will then move on to the end of stage 1 before starting stage 2 soon.

PhonicsPlay is a great website for children to access to practice their phonic skills from home.
We aim to change your child's reading book every Monday. This ensures each child has the opportunity to read their book within school to an adult at least once a week and with their family at home to develop their segmenting and blending skills.
This week we have been looking at the book 'Lost and Found' by Oliver Jeffers.
- We talked about the different parts of the book like; the front and back cover, the spine, the title, the blurb ect.
- We predicted what might happen in the story just from looking at the front cover and from reading a few pages.
- We used our inference skills to discuss how the penguin was feeling.
- We used out sequencing skills to put the story in order.
- We also discussed our likes, dislikes, patterns and puzzles about the story. We came up with some great questions to ask Oliver Jeffers about 'Lost and Found' if we got the chance.
Over the next few weeks we are going to be looking at numbers 0-10.
It would be great if you could practice counting from 0-10 and backwards at home. You could do this by;
- counting the stairs on your way up to bed
- counting different toys
- Counting how many carrots you have on your plate etc.
You could then work with your child on recognizing the different numbers and working on how to form them correctly.
In year 1 we are lucky enough to be able to access the Numbots Game - this allows your child to work on their maths skills at home in a fun, exciting way.
Each week I will be checking who has completed the next level and handing out certificates.
This week we have been looking at materials.
We investigated and identified wood, metal, plastic, water, stone and fabric.
We then explored the properties of them.
We went on a material hunt around the school, looking at where the materials were being used.
Next week we are going to look at taking care of our environment.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
