2 Kahlo's trip to Salcey Forest

2 Kahlo had a super day visiting Salcey Forest and luckily the weather stayed dry! As the children walked around the forest, they worked with their friends to identify different leaves and they looked for signs of how the trees and plants had grown from seed dispersal.

We will be using our learning from the trip in Geography, when we will be comparing trees in the UK to trees found in Sydney.

The children had a lovely time on the school trip and they were impeccably behaved, well done 2 Kahlo.

Helping at Home

Ways to help at home

  • Read every day
  • Practise your spellings and common exception words
  • As you read spot the sounds in words, can you find digraphs (two letters that make one sound) and trigraphs (three letters that make one sound)?
  • Count in 2s, 5s and 10s forwards and backwards
  • Learn your number bonds for all numbers to 20 (e.g number bonds to 7 are 1+6, 2+5, 3+4, etc.)
  • Practise telling the time to the hour, quarter past, half past, quarter to and as an extra challenge to 5 minute intervals (five past, ten past etc.)
  • Practise letter formation using the correct pencil grip and develop fine motor skills (peg pressing, picking pasta shells/rice with tweezers)
