Week Beginning 1 February 2016

Friday 5 February Red Day - As part of our Chinese New Year celebrations, students are invited to come to school wearing something red or in Chinese dress/costume.

MESSAGES

  • Swimming - During the  winter months, girls are allowed to wear black leggings and black socks instead of tights under their dresses/skirts on Swimming days. This will make it easier for the girls to change before and after lessons.
  • Uniform:  Now that it is colder in the mornings please remember that children should not be wearing leggings, boots or hoodies.  They should be wearing school jumpers/cardigans/fleeces and NOT non-uniform versions.  Information is available on the Primary Parent Handbook on the website.
  • Uniform sale:  We will be having another Used Uniform sale on Tuesday 2 February from 3.30pm-4.30pm in The Gallery. Please bring any clean, good quality, old uniforms to the Primary Reception over the next few weeks. 
  • On Friday 25 March we will have the International Day parade. Children will have the opportunity to dress in their national costumes or in the colours of their home country.
  • There will be NO PRIMARY ECA PROGRAMME ON TUESDAY AND THURSDAY, NOR PRIMARY BISS LIONS SWIMMING ON THURSDAY. Bus children will go home on the earlier school buses on these days. BISCAP  sessions will run as normal. 

LITERACY

The children will be exploring The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson. The book tells the story of a snail who travels the world on the back of a giant whale! The children will be writing postcards from the different destinations the pair  visit. The Grammar and spelling focus will be on using contractions correctly such as chaning can not to can’t. 

MATHS

In Maths the children will continue with addition and subtraction. The children will be learning to develop independence when completing addition and subtraction calculations. The children will first review their knowledge of numbers bonds to 10 and 20 and then apply this knowledge to round to the nearest ten before adding unit numbers. E.g. 24+6+7 could be solved by first adding 24+6 =30 then adding 30+7 =37. The children will be able to use counters, number squares or number lines to assist them.

THEMED LEARNING

The children will be completing activites to help celebrate Chinese New Year. They will all get an oppurunity to make a Chinese fan, a small Chinese lantern and a small money man to help celebrate the Year of the Monkey!

PSHCE

The children will be helping to create a ‘Year 2 Promise’ display. The children will think of a promise that they want to keep this term such as being thoughtful and kind. All the children’s promises will be displayed in the Year 2 corridor and these promises will be referred to over the course of the term to ensure that the children are remembering to behave well and treat each other kindly.

DUTCH

We knopen de laatste eindjes van de CITO- toetsen aan elkaar en maken er vooral een gastronomisch  week van. 

De recepten van de voorbije weken passeren de revue en we schrijven passende instructies bij de verschillende stappen tijdens het bereiden. Hoe maak je een `Tik Tak Tosti`?  Wat heb je allemaal nodig in de keuken als je een professionele kookcarrière nastreeft?

 De kinderen van year 2 willen heel graag een torenhoge boterham bijeen smeren deze week.  Zij mogen op woensdag hun favoriete broodbeleg meebrengen om dit smeerbare project tot een goed einde te brengen.

Op dinsdag 2 en donderdag 4 februari vinden de oudergesprekken weer plaats. Maak zeker een afspraak met juf Cindy of juf Chris. We streven ernaar de Cito-resultaten mee te kunnen geven, maar zullen dit niet bij alle kinderen redden.

Year2 Sea Horse/Sea Star/Native

This week we will be introducing the story of the Chinese zodiac animals to our students.
