St Elizabeth have been busy exploring different mark-making and lines that can be used in art. They have explored cross-curricular subjects such as RE and Science within an art lesson and have some great viewpoints on the creation story.
St Elizabeth's learning environment:
St Elizabeth's have been exploring dinosaurs this term and have discovered some exciting facts! We have been busy making dinosaur habitats and even had a science project involving an erupting volcano!
The children have been learning about how the world began and have explored this through artistic mediums. Children have looked at the creation story in the Bible and have also researched dinosaurs and how the world has changed.
Our Reptile Day: KS1 had a visit from lots of different animals and learnt about different types of animals and their habitats. The children were very brave!!
Year 1 and 2 had a special visit this week from the fire brigade. They learnt about fire safety, how to stay safe around the home e.g. not touching hot drinks and played some games. We are waiting for our second visit where they can go on the fire engine.
KS1 have been working so hard on their Nativity! Thank you to everyone who helped out - the costumes and set look brilliant.
Year 1 and 2 have been getting arty by making lovely Christmas decorations out of lolly sticks. The children had to research ideas for our Christmas fayre for their homework.
CRAZY HAIR DAY!
The children had lots of fun in St Elizabeth's class and spent some of their afternoon making Pudsey money boxes for Children in Need.
Our Suns have been exploring road safety during their 'scooter training' sessions. They have been able to bring their scooters into school and practice scooter safety in the playground and outside of school on the pavement. Alongside this, our Moons have also been learning about road safety in their 'pedestrian training' sessions.
Our Moons have been busy sorting numbers from 0-20 using different resources whilst our suns have been working hard to solve missing number sequences of up to 100.

Homework is given out every Thursday and is due in the following Tuesday. If there are any problems or questions with the homework please speak to the teacher.
Children will receive weekly spellings, maths or literacy.
Children are expected to read regularly at home and for this to be recorded in their yellow reading records. The teacher will record and comment in the reading record each week during guided reading and when reading 1:1 with the children. In year 2 children are encouraged to change their reading books independently and when needed from the class reading area.

Please find a link below to the 100 high frequency words and the Year 2 Common Exception Words. These are words children commonly read and write. Children should be able to read and write these by the end of year 1 and 2. Please continue to practise these words at home.
