Homework

In honour of the Royal Wedding we have decided not to set any homework this weekend. It is also FA Cup final weekend too so we thought that the Chelsea and Man U fans might be rather preoccupied!

Book Week

Next week is book week.
On Monday we are having a special Book Week assembly. During that assembly we are having a 'Big Read'. We would like each child to bring in a book from home to read during the 'Big Read'. 
On Thursday our Buddy Group sessions will be slightly different. Each child will need to bring a favourite book into school to read and share with the children in their Buddy Group. 
Friday is dressing up day and we are hoping that each child will come to school dressed as a book character. At 2:30 on Friday we are inviting parents to come in and share a book with their children. If you are unable to come in because of other commitments we will make sure that your child is buddied up with a friend.

May Procession

Our May procession is taking place on Wednesday afternoon at 1:45pm. We would be very grateful for donations of flowers for the May altar in honour of Our Lady. Parents, grandparents and parishioners are welcome to attend.


Swimming
Please note that 2R will swim on Wednesday morning because of the May Procession.
 
  

Helping your child to tell the time.
 Children are expected to be able to tell the time to 5 minute intervals confidently by the end of Year 2. We really need your support in helping your child to practise and learn how to tell the time. It would be really helpful if your child could have access to a clock where they can move the hands. A clock can be made quite easily using a paper plate and a split pin to secure the hands. 
Special times:  Long hand on 12 = o'clock, long hand on 3 = 1/4 past, long hand on 6 = 1/2 past and long hand on 9 = 1/4 to.
Minutes past: Put your finger on the 12 and count in fives until you get to the long hand. Write that number down followed by 'past'. Look to see which number to short hand has gone past. Write that number down next.
Minutes to: Put your finger on the number where the long hand is. Count in fives until you get to 12. Write that number down followed by 'to'. Now look to see which number to short had is going to. Write that number down next.
If you are considering purchasing a watch for your child the best ones I have seen are available from this website:
easyreadtimeteacher.com. They are relatively inexpensive. 

Technical Guidance for Accessing MyMaths

As MyMaths is a fully online resource you will need nothing but an Internet connection and an up-to-date web browser with inbuilt Flash, or a recent version of Flash installed on your computer. 

MyMaths support all the major browsers such as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Morilla Firefox, but please make sure that your Chrome or Firefox browsers are up to date and that your Internet Explorer is version 9 or higher.

Most Android tablets and mobile devices should be able to access the website using the Chrome or Firefox browser apps (among others), but users of iPad and other non-Flash devices will need to use the free Puffin Academy app, a mobile flash browser. 



Spelling Books
Quite a number of children are forgetting to bring their red spelling books into school on a Friday. Please could you make sure that your child has their spelling book in their red bag on a Friday.
