Mrs Alison Davies
Welcome to Lowton Junior and Infant School, encouraging growth at every stage of your child’s development.
Friday 17th November
Where are the weeks going? We have well underway with our rehearsals for the Christmas play. Please, please, please practise with your child as much as possible as it will help build their confidence. Another quick reminder about our trip to Spaceport on Wednesday 6th December. Please can you bring your money in as soon as possible if you haven’t already done so.
In English we added suffixes to the end of words e.g. wonder -> wonderful. In Year 2 we have to evidence the children using a range of suffixes in their writing such as (ment, less, ly, ful, ness). This week Mr Kruze designed a story about a lonely boy and a wonderful alien going on an adventure to Neptune. The children were encouraged to use suffixes in their work in order to describe the characters as well as their feelings.
In Maths we looked at addition maths stories with the ones adding to more than ten (regrouping) e.g. 15 + 26 =. We practised all week in order to feel confident using a consistent method in which the children begun to use column addition at the end. It is really important that the children line up the tens and ones in order to generate the correct answer.
Lots of children have made great progress with their reading, this is due to the commitment and support they receive at home. We have moved more children on to ‘Gold’ books this week which is a fantastic achievement. Please try and read with your child at least 3 times per week. A special mention to Bradley who moved up to Yellow books last week and has been reading more at home. A well-deserved pupil of the week certificate was handed out on Monday!
Finally, it is so important that your child is in school every day. It is also very important your child comes to school on time. If your child is missing school they may miss important parts of the learning process. We have been set a target to win the attendance trophy as a class next week. COME ON EVERYONE… lets win it!!
Thank you for your ongoing support,
Mr Kruze, Mrs Mills and Miss Burton
