 Year 2:                                                        

Are you able to solve the fraction word problems below?  

Please come and tell us how you managed to work them out.  Use the appropriate mathematical language you have been taught in school.  You will have to give this your WHOLE attention! 

1. Sam bought a bag of 18 cherries.

Sam ate 6 cherries.

What fraction of the bag of cherries did Sam eat?

2. Jo Bought a bag of cherries.

Jo ate half the number of cherries in the bag.

 Nature Trail                                                                                                                                                        

 Year One enjoyed their spring nature trail to Durants Park.  They looked for insects and different types of flowers and discussed the meaning of evergreen and deciduous trees in groups.

 

“I really enjoyed leading my group around and we looked for lots of types of flowers.  We had to look up some of the names though!’ – Felix

Next week, Year 1 children will receive flashcards with the high frequency words they are learning to read and spell at school. Please cut them along the lines and practise reading all of these words with your child every day. Practise spelling in writing one or two of these words a day, please. Keep the sessions short (10 – 15 minutes every day).

Do not hesitate to talk to your child’s teacher if you have any questions.

 

Reception:                                                                                                                              

We have loved looking at the signs of spring. Seeing the daffodils grow and the blossom appear on trees. It would be a wonderful time to take a spring walk with your child to see what changes have happened around where you live. It is now the time to start gardening! We will be growing a range of foods and teaching the children all about how plants grow. If you are interested in helping with this then please let your class teacher know. 

Nursery:

A few reminders:

Please ensure you child has a bag of spare clothes with them every day (including underwear and socks), in case of messy play or toileting accidents. We have very few spare clothes available - if your child borrows them please ensure they are washed and returned as soon as possible.

Don't forget to join us on Monday for our Lovely Ladies Tea Party at 11am and 3pm. The children are looking forward to sharing their homemade cakes with you.

If your child has not yet returned their proud cloud, please encourage them too, so they can see it displayed in the Nursery Entrance.

Please speak to Jo or Liz if you have any concerns or problems with a child in Nursery. We kindly ask that you do not approach other parents first as this can be upsetting. Thank you.

IT Top Tip:                                                                  

Report and Block                                                                                        

You can’t always rely on parental controls to block distressing or harmful material. People find ways around a platform’s algorithm in order to share and promote this type of material. Due to this, we advise that you flag and report any material you deem to be inappropriate or harmful as soon as you come across it. You should also block the account/content to prevent you child from viewing it. Also encourage your child to record/screenshot any content they feel could be malicious to provide evidence in order to escalate the issue to the appropriate channels.
