Hello  Awesome Owls 

Hope you have all had a good week. It is lovely to see so many of you have made bright colourful rainbows to help make people smile, they are all different and look brilliant.

It is also great to see some of you have enjoyed completing the tasks on Purple Mash and also logging on to Bug Club to read. Well Done! I hope you are all enjoying playing games and doing exciting things with your family, we have been baking quite a bit in our house.

For now, take care and continue being awesome owls, miss you all.

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 – https://www.twinkl.co.uk/blog/how-to-utilise-twinkl-during-the-coronavirus-shutdown-a-guide-for-schools

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.

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.

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.

 

Mental health at home Over the next few weeks we will all experience extra pressures that will affect how we think and feel. It’s important to recognise that all of us have mental health and, just like our physical health, at this time it’s important to look after it. On page 5 of this booklet there is a checklist of little activities to complete.

Maths Trail Trip 

On Friday 6 March all the year 2 classes went to visit I.M.Marsh

We had lunch in our classroom and then set off. Once we were in small groups we went around the I.M.Marsh campus to complete a maths trail.  We had great fun and enjoyed the trip.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thursday 5 March World Book Day 

Owls enjoyed wearing their PJ’s to school – some children brought their favourite book to share.

 

Owls really enjoyed an Origami session.  We all made a balloon heart.

 

 

 

 

World Book Day

Today Owls spent some time in a magical reading room. We relaxed and listened to part of our story ‘The Far Away Tree’. It was so calming and relaxing.  We have also been reading lots of Fable books and thinking about the moral of the stories.

 

 

 

 

Our first half term

We have all been working very hard, we enjoyed learning how to draw an owl and finding out all about owls.

We went on a science trip to I.M.Marsh.

We enjoyed learning about minibeasts, we went outside to look for minibeasts and found out where they lived.

We are starting this term  by learning  about ‘Our City’ –  Liverpool.

We will be finding out where Liverpool is on a map, what famous buildings are found in Liverpool and the history of the Liverpool Docks.  We will also learn how Liverpool got its name and how King John helped Liverpool City to develop.
