ADELIE PENGUINS & EMPEROR PENGUINS
KS1 SATS meeting for parents
WELCOME TO YEAR 2
It has been an exciting start to 2017 for Year 2.
We started off our weather topic in Geography and went out in all kinds of weather – frost, fog, rain and sunshine – measuring the daily temperature and recording our findings in a video blog.
In art we looked at how artists portray the weather, particularly the work of Turner and his masterpiece, 'Snowstorm' which we could see on our trip to Tate Britain along with many other works showing different kinds of weather.
In book week we all dressed up as our favourite characters – we even had a Sir Slice-a-Lot and Princess Proper from Fraction Land, our maths 'book'. We enjoyed a fantastic trip to the library where we learnt about the library and how to find books and listened to a story.
In Thinking Skills week, we did a 'treasure hunt' of philosophical questions and worked with Year 4 to discuss them. We also worked on some maths challenges.
Now are thoughts are already turning to how to get ready for SATs in May. Spag.com will soon be available to practice grammar questions at home and we shall be sending some sample practice papers home over Easter.
Please make sure you continue reading regularly at home, review spellings and learn times tables [2x, 3x, 5x and 10x].
