Stars of the week: All of Class 2

Well done Class 2 for a super week. You all showed so much enthusiasm towards the SATs and put in great amounts of effort. You also behaved beautifully during our school trip to the Tower of London. We learnt so much from our Castle Life workshop and explorations around the tower.

Stars of the week: Miriam & Anusha

Class 2 finalised and performed their plant-inspired dances this week. They demonstrated excellent teamwork, incorporated a variety of moves and worked carefully on making their moves clear and sharp.

Stars of the week: Malique & Phoebe

This week in Class 2 we have been writing and publishing our stories. We re-told the story ‘Up and Down’ by Oliver Jeffers. Well done Class 2 on including interesting adjectives and verbs and challenging yourself by including speech, commas, possessive apostrophes, time connectives, conjunctions and exclamation marks. We look forward to sharing them with you.

We have also been planting seeds in science. We will be carrying out an experiment to see what conditions are needed to help plants grow. We will be tying in our maths by measuring the length of our plants as they grow.

This week we have been immersing ourselves in our new learning topics for this half-term.

We started creating African safari landscapes in art using watercolours. Well done Class 2 for choosing and blending your colours so carefully.

In English we have been exploring the Oliver Jeffers book “Up and Down”. It has inspired some of our grammar learning on compound nouns and speech marks.

In Maths this week we have been learning about length. Please practise measuring items at home with a ruler. You can also estimate whether things are longer or shorter then 1metre.

Spring 2 – Week 6

Stars of the week: Heidi & Cruz

Well done Class 2 for learning the lyrics to the Easter play and for bringing such enthusiasm and professionalism to the rehearsals.

Last Friday we finished building our minibeast hotels and this week we evaluated them. Class 2 thought carefully about which natural materials they wanted to include. Whilst we were making them, we even had some minibeast visitors!

Spring 2 – Week 5

Stars of the week: Ruby & Ezra

This week in Class 2 we have been designing and building mini-beat hotels. Class 2 have been thinking very carefully about the needs of different minibeasts and creating different compartments to attract a variety of bugs. Every design is also completely unique – well done Class 2 for being so creative! On Friday we will be filling our hotel with lots of different natural materials to make the hotel as cosy as possible. We are hopeful they will attract all sorts of minibeasts now that spring has arrived.

Well done Class 2 for a very cheerful, professional and informative collective worship this week. You wowed the audience with your ability to share your learning so confidently. You should feel so proud of yourselves.

Spring 2 – Week 3

Stars of the week:  Ava & Charlotte

We had such a magical World Book Day last Friday. The class dressed up as their favourite characters/dragons, we read with Year 6, listened to a mystery reader and started our dragon art for display. It was a great end to a book-filled week.

Spring 2 – Week 2

Stars of the week: Evelyn & Gerard

We have had a very fun-filled Book Week! There has been such a buzz around the winged visitor in the library. It has really brought our English learning alive this week. We have been writing amazing stories inspired by a dragon folk tale from Japan. Class 2 have used excellent adjectives and interesting verbs to make their descriptions effective. They even included similes! We will be publishing our stories for display next week.

On Thursday we had the authors Jan Burchett & Sara Vogler in to do a workshop. They shared with us their experiences of being an author and took us on a treasure hunt, inspired by their book Sam Silver The undercover pirate. We have designed our own treasure maps and will be writing stories about them.

In maths we have been learning all about fractions. We have been learning about halves and quarters. Next week we will be thinking about thirds and the idea that 2 quarters is the same as a half. We have enjoyed this groovy video – you can have a listen at home.
