11th - 15th July 2022
Dear Parents / Carers
Here is an outline the work we will be covering next week.
Our Celebration Assembly
Our Award for Living in St. Mary’s Way goes to Stephen in St. Francis and Anabelle in St. Martin.
Our Stars of the Week are Somto in St. Martin and Olivia in St. Francis.
English, Maths and Science: Asking questions to sort two items.
In preparation for next week’s work on binary sort trees, we have been learning how to look closely at two creatures and identify something different about hem, and turning this into a question where the answer for one is ‘yes’, and for the other is ‘no’.
e.g. Comparing an octopus and a whale.
The sort of questions that could be asked are:
Does it have eight legs? Yes for the octopus, no for the whale.
Does it have fins? Yes for the whale, no for the octopus.
Spellings: Homophones – words that sound the same but are spelt differently,
e.g. ‘our’ and ‘hour’.
Keep practising chanting 2-, 5- and 10 times tables.
We will be thinking about the wonder of God’s creation, and our role in helping to look after it for the future.
Preparing for Mass
We will be busy over the coming week rehearsing for the Retirement Mass on Thursday, and the Year 2 Mass of Celebration on Tuesday, 19th July. We look forward to seeing you at these Masses.
Science: This coming week we will be focusing on scientific questioning to sort living things using a binary sort tree.
Geography: We will be looking at human and physical features of a coastal region.
