This week we have been planning a leaflet all about what we have learnt about Kettering this term. We have looked at ways to engage the reader by using questions, statements and commands and have had to think carefully about how to organise our writing into sections and headings. We hope to send these leaflets to children in schools around the world, in the hope that one day, they might come to visit Kettering.

In Maths we have been using resources to subtract. We have talked about times in everyday life when we use subtractions and have used Bar Model method to take away part from a whole. Some of us have had a go at using number lines to check our answers too. 

In Science, we have talked about things that humans and animals need to survive. We also talked about things that make us happy and healthy and compared them to things that we need. In groups we made decisions about which things were more important than others and used the skills or explaining and justifying to talk about our answers. 

On Thursday we enjoyed a class visit to the library, where we learnt how to take out and return books. All of us spent some time browsing the books and reading to each other. 

After visiting the church briefly to have out lunch, we went to the Museum to learn about how Kettering has changed over the years. We also visited the Alfred East Gallery to look at the Art which was on display there. 

Next week, we will use the information to put into our leaflets. 

There will be no new spellings for Mrs Meeks’ group this week, but we ask that the children go back over the last three weeks (kn, gn, wr and soft C) and the Common Exception Words for next Friday.


Choose a Langauge

How you can help!

Spend some time looking at the Common Exception Words for Year 2. The children will need to know how to read and spell all of these by the end of Year 2.

Practise pairs of numbers which make 10 or 20 if you fancy a challenge. For example 7 + ? = 10.

Talk to your child about the faith of your family and explore their views and opinions about it. Alternatively, you could choose a faith to explore and find out about. 

Practise the spelling pattern of the week - maybe even find other words with the pattern which are not on the list
