We are artists
What a messy week!
First we made collagraph prints inspired by the abstract art of Kandinksy and Mondrain and then we made coil pots out of clay! They are all looking fabulous and the children have learned some great new skills as a result!
In English we have begun shared-writing a formal letter to Mr Young. I have been impressed by the children's vocabulary and how we are using the model text to help us write this new letter! Keep it up as we will be using this shared write to innovate our own letters!
In Maths we have been finding 1/2, 1/4 and 1/3 of shapes and objects and I was pleased to see how much we'd remembered today when we had to shade 3/4 and 2/3 of a shape too! The secret word is denominator.
I have set another spag.com homework this week to be completed by Thursday 28th March. I have written it on the blackboard in the window of the classroom too and have nagged the children to tell you!
Have a lovely weekend!

For parents and carers: Thank you to the parents who came to the KS1 SATs meeting yesterday. I hope you all found it useful. ! For those that were unable to attend I have attached the PowerPoint I used for your information. I have also attached the Teacher Assessment Framework (TAF) which is a checklist of objectives for Year 2 children to achieve by the end of the year which is what they are assessed against based on the whole year's work. If you have any questions, do ask! I haven't spoken to the children about SATs yet but when I do it will be that they are doing Secret Agent Training set by the government and they will be working with the teachers complete their tasks over a few weeks and will recieve a prize at the end of them for their hard work. I do not want them to feel it is something to worry about as it isn't and they will be prepared enough to feel they know what to do as we are already working towards this!
