Year 1/2

This week year 1 and 2 have been writing based on the Red Riding Hood fairytale. Year 2 have worked independently and collaboratively.  

We have been learning about Friedrichsen Hunderwasser and how he uses the environment in his work.  We have experimented with pattern and colour.

Wilton Expects

This year we have four Wilton expects values that we expects the children to show. They are determination, independence, collaboration and compassion. Each value is linked to a colour. When the children do something well, they receive a wowcher. If they receive a wowcher directly linked to one of our Wilton expects values then they receive a wowcher of the matching colour. Each child from Year 1 upwards has a card to record their coloured wowchers on. Once they have completed a full section then they will receive one of our new badges. We are looking forward to seeing who the first winners are! Children in Nursery and Reception are given wowchers in the form of Wilton stickers. They can be nominated by an adult to receive one of the Wilton expects badges by an adult in the academy if they are consistently showing determination, independence, collaboration or compassion.

Shine like a Star

This week we are focusing on being independent so our Shine like a Star is to try something new on your own.

Times Tables Rock Stars

Practicing times tables is so important in improving maths and is a huge part of number work from Year 2 upwards. Please encourage your child to use their account to get as fast as they can which will help them be able to apply their knowledge to different areas of maths.

Congratulations to the highest coin collectors this week!
