Message from Mrs Kingston We have noticed increasing levels of playground chat about the game Fortnite— Battle Royale which is a PEGI 12+ gun battle game which requires players to work as a team. The main risks to children are interacting with strangers and also making costly in-app purchases. If your child is talking about Fortnite, please follow this link to find out more about it. https:// www.internetmatters.org/hub/guidance/ fortnite-battle-royal-parents-guide-keepkids-safe-gaming/

What's going on in class?

As part of Internet Safety week we made a web to show how we are connected in Year 2, we thought about being connected in different ways e.g. having the same colour eyes, sitting on the same table, playing football together, being in the same class etc. Then we thought about how the internet helps us connect to other people around the world.

Our plants have grown so much.

Some of us planted Sunflower seeds and the rest of us planted Tomato seeds.

Look how big they've grown!

Planting our seed at the start of Term 3 - we measured them every week so watch them grow.

Friday was NUMBER DAY for the NSPCC.

We did an investigation to find how many ways you could make 5/10/20 passengers using different modes of transport. The children worked brilliantly.

 

In the afternoon Year 6 organised a Number rock trail and we had to find numbered rocks. What a fun afternoon it was!

Maths and Reading workshops

 

Thanks so much to the few parents that attended these this week and last week, it was great to see the support being given at home, it makes such a difference.

Remember we have the Year 2 KS1 SATs coming up in May - there will be a SATs meeting next term and it would be great to see more parents attend. I will be explaining how you can support your child at home ready for the tests and exactly what they will be expected to do in them.

Welcome back - Term 3 has started well and we are loving our new topics about the History of Flight and Plants (Science).

We have already made a start making paper mache hot air balloons and we have planted some seeds.

Today we had a visit from some student dental nurses who taught us how to look after our teeth and brush properly... we had our teeth painted with disclosing solution to show up the plaque and see how well we brush our teeth. It was great fun!!!!!!

We are revising the phonics we learned in Year 1 and making sure we use ALL the different sounds we know. Today we practised the 'ay' sound and wrote some amazing sentences!

To help us counting in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s we drew number ladders and jumped on the numbers saying them as we went.
