Our learning this week…

English

At Howard Primary School we have adopted The Power of Reading scheme for literacy. Our literacy work is based around a core text. The text we are working on is called Rapunzel by Bethan Woollvin.

 

Other books by Bethan Woollvin include:

 

This week we will:

  • Plan their own version of a fairy tale with an alternative ending
  • Write their own version of a fairy tale with an alternative ending

Children should include features of Year 2 writing.

  • write simple coherent narratives about personal experiences and those of others (real of fiction)
  • write about real events, recording these simply and clearly
  • demarcate most sentences in their writing with capital letters and full stops, and use question marks correctly when required
  • use present and past tense correctly and consistently
  • use co-ordination (e.g. or/ and/ but ) and some subordination (e.g. when/if/that/because) to join clauses
  • segment spoken words into phonemes and represent these by graphemes, spelling many of the words correctly and making phonically-plausible attempts at others
  • spell many common exception words
  • form capital letters and digits of the correct size, orientation and relationship to one another and to lower-case letters
  • use spacing between words that reflects the size of the letters

 Children will work on showing the change in their character.

 

Mock Reading Paper


Reading – two papers 

The Key Stage 1 reading test comprises two papers which cover fiction, non-fiction and poetry texts:

  • Paper 1 – This consists of a selection of texts totalling between 400 – 700 words, with questions interspersed
  • Paper 2 – This includes a reading booklet of a selection of passages totalling 800 – 1100 words. Children are required to write their answers in a separate booklet.

Each paper is worth 50% of the marks and takes approximately 30 minutes.

What kinds of questions are there?

There will be a mixture of question types. In some, your child will need to choose an answer (selected responses). For others, they will need to write their own answer (short and extended responses).

Examples of selected response questions include:

Multiple choice: What is Lucy looking for in the story? Tick one of the boxes below.
Ranking/ordering: Number the events below to show the order in which they happen in the story.
Matching: Match the character to what they do in the story.
Labelling: Label the text to show the title.

Examples of short response questions include:

Find and copy: Find and copy one word that shows how Lucy is feeling.
Short response: What does Lucy eat?

Examples of extended response questions include:

Open-ended response: Why did Lucy write the letter to her grandmother? Give two reasons.

 

Geography

Children will find out more information about the different continents using an atlas. Children will develop their atlas skills.Like other non-fiction books, atlases have a table of contents in the front of the book and an index at the end of the book. The index, which is in alphabetical order, helps you find the page for specific information.The most important part of an atlas is the map key. The map key, which is also called the map legend, is a little box on each map that explains different symbols or colors so you can understand the map.

PE

Our focus this term will be tennis and dance/exercise.

 

PSHE

This term in PHSE we are focusing on celebrating differences. We will continue to focus on bullying.

At Howard Primary School we have adopted The Power of Reading scheme for literacy. Our literacy work is based around a core text. The text we are working on is called Rapunzel by Bethan Woollvin.

 

Other books by Bethan Woollvin include:

 

This week we will:

  • Shared write on an explanatory text
  • To write an explanatory text
  • Conscience Alley

 

 

 Shared write on an explanatory text

Explanatory text (sometimes called an explanation) is a type of non-fiction text that explains a process (for example, how something works or why something happens)

As a class we will write shared explanation text explaining to Rapunzel how to defeat the witch.

 

To write an explanatory text

Children will use our shared write to write their own explanatory text explaining to Rapunzel how to defeat the witch.

Maths

    • To solve two step problems with money
    • To recognise equal groups
    • To make equal groups
    • To add equal groups

To solve two step problems with money

A two-step problem is a word problem that requires two operations to solve it. This means that children must be familiar with the vocabulary associated with the mathematical symbols they are used to, in order to make sense of the word problem.
An example of a two-step problem involving money: an orange cost 18p and apple cost 32p. How much change would you get from £1.

To recognise equal groups

 

Children will recognise equal groups as being the same. Equal means the same. The above shows equal groups.

To make equal groups

Children will make equal groups. They have to make groups and ensure they all have the same amount.

 

To add equal groups

 

 

Children will add up equal groups using repeated addition.

 

 

 

Geography

In Geography we are learning about continents and oceans. We are learning about continents first. Children will use atlases and maps to identify the different continents.  We will think about the location of the different continents, key features of the continents and where it is in relation to other continents. Children will continue to develop their skills when using an atlas. We will focus on using an index page.
