Book Week!


Stars of the Week: Maidie and Selena


Well done to Class 2 for producing some fantastic writing and artwork during Book Week! Both Maidie and Selena wrote and published their stories based on under the sea settings to an extremely high standard. Their writing is now on display in the KS1 corridor as part of our fantastic Flotsam display.

On Book Day, Class 2 also enjoyed buddy reading with Class 6. The children shared books and their own writing, listening and discussing the texts they had chosen.

Settings under the sea


Stars of the week: Iyad and Marwah


This week in art, we have been making under the sea scenes in response to our Book Week text, Flotsam by David Weisner. Iyad and Marwah both produced some very detailed drawings of sea creatures and made beautful textured backgrounds by painting and printing. Well done!

Check back soon to see photos of our finished display!

Book Bingo

As part of Book Week, all children in Class 2 have chosen a new Book Bingo card for their reading records. Everyone chose a bingo card that has several books they have never read on it. Each card also has two spaces where children can choose their own books to add to the card. We really look forward to seeing the books the children have chosen!

The books on the cards are widely available in the library or in shops. We also have a small selection of books at school that can be borrowed.

Class 2, Once you have read all the books on your card, tell an adult at school all about them and then you can get a new bingo card.

Happy reading!

Fractions


Stars of the Week: Anashe and Stanley


This week in Class 2, we have been learning about fractions. We have been finding halves, quarters and thirds of shapes and numbers. Stanley and Anashe have applied themselves to their learning very enthusiastically, and have shown that they can reason clearly about different fractions. Well done maths superstars!

Japan

We have had a great time learning about Japan in art, geography and English this half term!

Today, we finished making 3D scenes with collage, inspired by The Great Wave by Hokusai. See if you can spot Mount Fuji in each piece of artwork.

London Fire Brigade


Stars of the Week: Christopher and Kosi


Yesterday, Class 2 had a visit from the London Fire Brigade. The class learnt about how the Fire Brigade keep people safe and also found out about good things to do for fire safety at home. The whole class listened and joined in brilliantly.

Well done to Christopher and Kosi who listened and took part really well.

For Parents: If you would like a home safety visit, free advice and free smoke alarms installed, please visit london-fire.gov.uk for more information.

Haiku poems


Stars of the Week: Helena and Iyad


As part of our English and geography topic on Japan, Class 2 have learnt to write haiku poems. They have 3 lines and seventeen syllables, and often describe the seasons and nature. Well done to Helena and Iyad for producing some very descriptive poems, choosing their vocabulary carefully to reflect their chosen season.

If you would like to have a go at writing a haiku, remember it needs three lines with five syllables in the first and last, and seven syllables in the middle. Post you work in the comments section to have it published on our blog!

The Lord’s Prayer


Stars of the Week: Joshua and Marwah


In RE this term, Class 2 is learning about the Lord’s Prayer. This week, we thought about the meaning of ‘daily bread’ and discussed all of the things people need to live well. Joshua and Marwah worked particularly hard on acrostic poems that show they know the meaning of the phrase ‘daily bread’.
Very thoughtful work, well done!

Here are their poems:
Thank you for
Blessings that are good.
Reading books that can be read.
Eating food for our health.
Air for us to breathe.
Delicious food for us to eat.
by Joshua

Thank you for
Bread for eating.
Rest to keep us healthy.
Eating food so we don’t starve.
Able to learn.
Deciding to do good choices.
by Marwah

If you’d like to write your own poem on the theme of ‘daily bread’ please post it in the comments section!
