Trolls Welcome back from your Christmas break. We hope Santa came to all the children and everyone had fun! Here’s what’s happening this term in Dosbarth 2. 'Trolls' is our Topic this half term and we have started the term looking at 3 Billy Goats Gruff. We have started the term looking at the characters in the book and creating the roe play area which is called The Trolls 'Coughy Shop'. We have looked at bridges and researched different local bridges and bridges from around the world. We will present what we have found out to the rest of the class in different ways such as using green screen and Book Creator. In Inspire Maths, we are starting the term with shape, money, addition and subtraction and moving onto ordinal numbers and place value. We will also be doing some practice papers to help us get ready for the Tests coming up in May. How can you help? Read books with your children and comment in their Reading Record books. Encourage the children to talk about what they have learnt in school and find out what they enjoyed.
CHILDREN'S READING RECORD The children will bring home their reading book bag everyday. The children will read in school with a member of staff once maybe twice weekly. When the children have read they are to place their book in the red box upstairs and it will be changed. Please ensure you or your child have commented in their yellow reading record book so we know they have read the book.
The children had to create a bridge strong enough to hold a character and then measure it using standard or non-standard units.
We have started to create a troll mask out of Mod-roc. It's very messy but very fun!!
