Years 1 and 2 Sports Afternoon on Tuesday 26 April (1.40-3.30) at Primary School Playground and Field.
All children will take part in each of the activities as they move around a range of stations through the afternoon; there are also plenty of rest areas planned in order that the children can drink and get some shade. Some activities will be based around fun games and some will have a more athletic feel. The activities are designed to challenge the students physically but also help them have fun whilst doing exercise.
- On the 16 June the Year 2 children will have a rainforest dress up day. All the children are encouraged to dress up as a rainforest animal. This will also be the day of the Year 2 learning showcase.
- Term 3 Second Hand Uniform Sale 3.00pm – 4.30pm on Monday 25 April in the Gallery
- Saturday 23 April is the annual Garden Party which this year has “a twist of Shakespeare” as the theme. Again this year, we want to encourage students, teachers and parents to wear a great hat – the more unique the better. Flamboyant, fabulous and even more fantastic if you can link it to the Shakespeare theme! To add some variety we are also adding a new challenge this year. We want you to design your very own shield. You could go for a traditional design, a futuristic one or even one with a Shakespeare theme. Big or small – it is up to you but again we want you to show your imagination and creativity.
This week the children will continue to be writing their reports about rainforest animals. They will use the research they have gathered over the previous week, as well as the information they have collected from the internet during their Themed Learning lessons. They will focus on using compound sentences that include more than one clause.
In Maths the children will be learning about 2D and 3D shapes. Following a review of the properties of 2D the children will then move onto learn the properties of 3D shape. They will learn to recognise vertices, faces and edges on a 3D shape. At the end of the week the children will learn to draw vertical lines of symmetry and on basic 2D shape.
In Themed learning the children will be learning about rainforest habitats. They will learn about the different layers of the rainforest and the plants and animals they live over the four different layers. The children will record the information they have gathered on an I Pad app called Popplet.
Compound sentences, nouns, verbs, adjectives.
Vertical lines of symmetry, vertices, faces and edges
Under story, forest floor, emergent layer, canopy.
