This week the children started their SATs by completing the spelling, grammar and punctuation paper. Everyone dealt with the paper in a mature fashion and it was a calm and relaxed environment in both classes. Next week on Monday and Tuesday Year 2 will continue with these assessments and will be competing the two reading papers. Please make sure your child completes their reading comprehension homework as this will help them to prepare and make sure they come to school well rested and on time to give them the best chance of succeeding.
In English we finished writing up our detailed and interesting recounts of our visit to Kirkley Hall and it was clear from all of the effort the children put in that they really have enjoyed our animal topic. In our art work we have been using our science knowledge to carry out some observational drawings of natural objects as well as using natural materials to create land art and sculptures in the style of Andy Goldsworthy.
We have been revising the skills we have learnt over the year in maths and have been practicing applying these skills to solve reasoning problems. Revision will continue into next week in preparation for the Maths SATs.
We also came to the end of our computer coding project in ICT. The children have wowed us with their debugging skills and we definitely have some computer programmers of the futures in the year group.
Don’t forget next Friday (18th May) is our royal wedding celebration day where all the children can come in wedding attire.
