500 Words

As a school, we are entering the 500 Words competition run by the BBC.  The children have planned and written their stories independently in class.  For the stories to be entered, the children need to have their stories typed as handwritten copies are not accepted. If you would like your child to be entered, please can you type up their story and send it into yeartwo@woodville.essex.sch.uk by Tuesday 7th November 2023.  We will accept your email back as consent to submit them to the competition.

Many thanks,

In the Autumn Term, our topic is 'Around the World'. We will be learning lots about the world around us, including the names of oceans and continents and discovering lots about different explorers and their missions. 

 

In English lessons, we will be looking at different features we can find in poems and focusing on performing poetry effectively. We will also be writing our own set of 'disgusting' instructions, character descriptions and Christmas themed letters. 

 

In maths lessons, we will be recapping our number and place value knowledge, addition and subtraction.  We will work on our fluency and tackle challenges using our reasoning and problem solving skills. 

 

In science, we will be learning about living things and their habitats.  This will hopefully include a trip to Hyde Hall so please keep an eye out for a letter in the next few weeks. 

 

In HRSE, we will look at 'Being me in my World' where we will look at who we are and how we fit in the world.  We will then move on to 'Celebrating Difference' where we look at similarities and differences, anti-bullying and being unique. 

 

Our first 'Big Read' will be Mr Penguin and the Lost Treasure.

 

Indoor PE will be on a Thursday and outdoor PE is on a Friday- please come into school in your PE kit.  Long hair must be tied back and no jewellery is to be worn. 

 

Forest School is on a Wednesday.

 

School bags only need to be school (just big enough for a book and reading record.  Pencil cases are not needed, however, should your child want to bring one it needs to be small enough to fit in their tray.  

 

A healthy snack of fruit or vegetable will be provided each day.  If you want to send your child in with their own fruit or vegetable snack this is also ok.  Please also ensure your child has a named water bottle.  These can be refilled when necessary throughout the school day. 

 

Please read as often as possible with your child nd make a note of this in their reading record.  Maths and Spelling homework will be set on a Friday and due in the next Friday. This will be set on EdShed.  Additionally, they can practice their times tables on TTRockstars.  All login details can be found at the back of their reading records.

Times Table Rockstars

GARAGE – times tables set by the teacher

JAMMING – choose your own times tables to practise. You are able to select multiplication, division or a mixture of both. You can also choose the number of questions to answer. 

STUDIO – general practise to improve your ‘Rock Status’. It will also give you your average speed.

SOUNDCHECK – this activity will give the children 6 seconds to answer a random set of 25 questions. This is the speed they will need once they get to Year 4 so they may not be ready for this speed just yet.
