Year 1/2 - Brackendene

Weekly Update (Week ending 18.10.19)



The children really enjoyed their visit from Falconry UK this week and learnt about several different birds with lots of interactions with them. If you opted for your child to have a picture taken these will hopefully be with us by the end of next week.

In maths the Year 2's have now moved onto subtraction. They have been looking at different words associated with subtraction and different ways to subtract.


In maths the Year 1's have also been looking at subtraction and understanding that the number gets smaller. 


In English we have been looking closely at the houses in 'Here comes Mr Postmouse' in detail and writing up descriptions of them.

In Phonics we have been looking at the sound 'igh' represented in different ways such as those shown here.

I have included some PowerPoints below that go through the sounds children should know. Please feel free to practice these at home especially the year 1 children.

In topic we have been looking at different types of puppets and how they are made. We have designed our own puppets ready to sew next week.


Please learn week 6 spellings.


Reading books will now be changed on a Tuesday. Children will choose their own 2 books from the colour book band they have been allocated. These books are designed to be read easily by the children to enable them to practice their reading and enjoy reading. We look at more challenging books in school. Please feel free to read other books at home with your children.


Children went to the school library on Thursday ane enjoyed selecting their own boos to take home. If children would like to change them next week then from Monday they can place their library book in our class blue box labelled 'Brackendenes library books' Children are welcome to keep their books for longer if they are enjoying them and bring back the following week.



Have a lovely weekend
