All children have been allocated books on bug club to read. Childrens reading books will be collected in and there are plenty of books available on the children’s accounts on bug club that they can read. Their individual log in details are in the front of their reading record books.

 

Purple Mash – https://www.purplemash.com/sch/sudley-infant

Children all have their personal log in details in their reading record book for purple mash. The children all know how to navigate purple mash and there are lots of learning resources available.

Twinkl are taking steps to support continued learning at home, by offering the teachers and parents of children in schools which are closed, or facing closure, free access to all Twinkl resources for a period of one month and possibly longer depending on closures. Twinkl is a fantastic website which provides resources for all subjects in all age ranges. They have created packs for parents to download and share during this time.

Use code CVDTWINKLHELPS for free access.

 

Phonics play – https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/

This is a site dedicated to phonics. A lot of parents already know what phonics phase their child is on, however if you do not you can select each phase and read them through with your children. You will be able to easily identify where they are working at and try and push them onto the next stage. Please make sure you consolidate their learning first before moving onto the next phase.

Phonics is just one of the many components to help children with their reading and writing. Keep on reading as much as you can with the children as this makes a huge difference.

Children can use the site at home without their parents needing to subscribe. To access the resources all you need to do is log on using the following details.

Username: march20
Password: home

 

Oddizzi – https://www.oddizzi.com/

Oddizzi is an e-learning resource and community that immerses children in the real world. There are lots of geography resources available for the children to access at home. Their log in details are in their reading record books.

 

Welcome parents and children of Linnets class!

Last week we had a very exciting week going on our first school trip in Year 2. We went to LJMU I.M Marsh and worked in different groups when we were there. In our groups we got to explore the campus. Our groups got to look for mini beasts using a magnifying glass in different locations around the University, we went into the forest school and we even got to make some bird houses and feeder! We had lots of fun on our trip. That afternoon we wrote a recount about our trip.

This week we have our breakfast assembly on Tuesday morning, we look forward to seeing you all there.

Reminders:

  • This week we have our breakfast assembly on Tuesday morning.

  • It is parents meetings this week. Remember on Thursday we have no year 2 school clubs due to there being parents meetings both before and after school. There will be a club the first week on the Thursday back after half-term.

  • Children need to bring their reading book into school everyday. This will then be returned the same day for the children to continue at home. It is the child’s responsibility to empty their bag out each morning and put their book into their basket on their table as well as put it back into their book bag at the end of the day. If the book is finished the book should be placed in the ‘Change me’ basket in the morning. It is the child’s responsibility to get the book out of their bag and place it in the correct basket. The children will have been doing this since Reception. We foster independence in school and want the children to be self sufficient. The children also have access to Bug Club at home via computer, tablet or iPad. The login for this will be in the front of the reading record.

  • Please remember that P.E is Thursday morning so children are to come into school in their P.E kit with their school uniform ready to change into.

Many thanks,

Miss Poole

We have had a very busy couple of weeks. We have learnt so much about The Great Fire of London in topic as well as looking at facts about our capital city London and famous landmarks there. We have also continued reading lots of books from our reading corner. Each day we now read our class novel ‘Wizard vs. Lizard’ By Simon Philip and cannot wait to find out how Fred does in the wizard challenge. On our non curriculum day this book was our focus; we wrote about magical spells inspired from the book, designed our own witches and wizard hats and did our very own potions class with some even bubbling over the pots when we added the right amount of fairy dust!

Reminders:

  • Please remember that P.E is Thursday morning so children are to come into school in their P.E kit with their school uniform ready to change into.

  • This week on Wednesday 16th October we go to Liverpool John Moores I.M Marsh in the morning on a trip. If children could wear old shoes/boots and bottoms and bring in their uniform to change into when we return back to school please.

  • Week beginning 21st October is parents evening, if you could make sure you return the slip in so that you get a time slot if you wish to get an appointment.

  • Spellings will go out on Monday and should be returned on a Friday. The children should make sure they bring their spelling book back in please.

  • Homework comprehension is handed out on a Friday, this should be handed in by the following Tuesday.

 

Many thanks,

Miss Poole

We had a fantastic week in Linnets. In class we have already read so many books together and all love our reading corner. Last week we especially enjoyed going on our mini beast hunt, we found lots of different creatures on our hunt in our playground. Then we collected the information and made a graph to show where the most mini beasts could be found and discussed why we thought different areas had more or less creatures there. Lots of us knew information on mini beasts but after this we all were experts on them!

This week we are learning about the Underground.

Reminders:

  • Please remember that P.E is Thursday morning so children are to come into school in their P.E kit with their school uniform ready to change into.

  • Spellings will go out on Monday and on a Friday, the children should make sure they bring their spelling book back in please.

  • After school clubs will be allocated this week, a letter will be sent home with further information.

 

Many thanks,

Miss Poole

It was lovely to see all the parents and carers who came to our Meet the Teachers session on Thursday. I hope that the talk was informative. A newsletter will be sent home each week full of key information for that week and our class website will be updated regularly. We are going to have a fabulous year in Linnets!

In Linnets class we have had an amazing first week settling in and catching up with our friends about what we did over summer. We learnt lots of new facts about Linnets and we all now know how to tell if a Linnet is male or female by its colouring! Our Linnet display is full of the split pin birds we made. This is on display by our reading corner. Finally, we decided on our class rules in R.E. Everyone contributed rules and together we were able to think of four simple rules to remember that covered everything we should adhere to in school and on the playground. These are on display in our classroom.

 

This week we will be learning about body percussion and have been looking at one man bands.

Reminders:

  • Please remember that P.E is Thursday morning so children are to come into school in their P.E kit (indoor kit) with their school uniform ready to change into.

  • Spellings will go out on Monday and on a Friday, the children should make sure they bring their spelling book back in please.

 

 

Thanks,
