Year 1/2 - Brackendene

Weekly Update (Week ending 12.7.19)

In Brackendene this week:

What a lovely day we had at Southend - the children really enjoyed themselves and were very well behaved.

In English we wrote a recount of our trip to Southend and concluded our owner's guidance for Beezyblub  about how to keep him clean then some very clear dos and don'ts.

In Maths both year groups have been looking at the coins we use.

In topic the children wrote instructions for how a Victorian lady would use a bathing machine at the seaside. The children have also made their clay tiles of a seaside scene they had designed.


Next week in Brackendene


We will be looking at the text - 'How the leopard got his spots' - retold by Shoo Rayner (based on the Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling) and planning our own myth.



In maths both year groups will be looking at banknotes we use in this country before activities involving selecting the correct coins/notes to pay for exactly for something.



The children will paint their clay tiles. We will also be learning who Grace Darling was.



What other 'Just So Stories' did Rudyard Kipling write?


Home Learning - these will be collected in for the final time on Wednesday.


The children have their Bug Club logins. Go to and log in using your child's details. Books and activities have been allocated to each child, so give it a go.


Carry on with Times Table Rockstars.


Library - there will be no library until the new term - please return all books next week.


Reading Books - we shall be collecting all home reading books so that the reading scheme can be updated and labelled.



Monday and Tuesday 


Have a lovely weekend!


Mrs Webster-Smith
