Cumbria Class Update 10/07/24:

 

This week in Cumbria 2 the children have continued to show their enthusiasm for their learning. 

In our English lessons, we concluded our exploration of the term text 'Leaf' by Sandra Dieckmann. The children thoroughly enjoyed the book's conclusion, and we engaged in a whole class discussion to review the themes. The children used conjunctions to add reasoning to support their views on the book. Next,  we outlined a narrative plan in preparation for rewriting the story of 'Leaf' next week. 

 

Within our Maths sessions, the focus has been on descriptive language for turns, with an introduction to the terms clockwise and anticlockwise. Practical exercises involved tracing shapes to illustrate quarter, half, and full turns, enabling the children to distinguish between clockwise and anticlockwise movements effectively.

 

In Reading we have been exploring how characters are feeling and what they are thinking and how these two things can be shown within a text and its illustrations. The children worked like detectives with the text to find key words that gave us clues on how the characters are feeling. 

 

Next week, we are going to be creating royal residences using the knowledge we have learned from our topic of Magnificent Monarchs in History. It would be very helpful if any cardboard boxes came to school to help us create these castles and palaces. Thank you.

Reading

Children should be reading everyday and once a week this can be logged on https://www.boomreader.co.uk/parents

  • All children who are on RWI will bring home a RWI Reading book each Friday, please return them the following Wednesday. 
  • Children in Year 2 also begin to bring home a book from the Discovery Centre which is levelled according to the Accelerated Reader (AR) scheme  https://www.southborough.kent.sch.uk/accelerated-reader-1/

      These books can be returned and swapped as soon as they are finished. There is also a quiz                    associated with these books https://www.southborough.kent.sch.uk/year-2-1/

Note: some children will bring home both a RWI Reading book and an AR levelled reading book - please read both with your child.
Both books should be left in their bags so they can read them at school, as well as at home, to enhance their fluency.
