Autumn 1 Week 7 – DT Challenge

Stars of the Week: Annamaria and Carter

Well done to Annamaria and Carter for their attention to detail when creating moving dragon puppets! Class 2 thoroughly enjoyed the DT Challenge days and worked hard to design and make a dragon puppet that flaps its wings when a string is pulled. The class learnt how to modify a template to create their own design and tested out lots of decorating techniques in their sketchbooks before completing their puppet.

Autumn 1 Week 6 – The Owl and the Pussycat

Stars of the Week: Anderson and Parker

This week, Class 2 visited the Little Angel Theatre to see ‘The Further Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat.’
Back in class, we made up new verses, imagining the journeys they went on next. Well done to Anderson and Parker
for thinking carefully about rhythm and rhyme!

The owl and the pussycat went to the sun
In a beautiful rainbow rocket.
They took some jam
And plenty of ham
Wrapped up in a turquoise pocket.
– by Anderson

The owl and the pussycat went to a bee
In a beautiful green pea.
They took some cheese
and plenty of bees
Wrapped up in a green tree.
– by Parker

Next week we are learning about... adding one digit numbers to two digit numbers and crossing tens.

Autumn 1 Week 5 – Explorers

Stars of the Week: Ben and Charles

This term, Class 2 have been learning about famous explorers in history. Both Ben and Charles worked hard to include historical details in the diary entries the wrote as the explorers Ibn Battuta and Neil Armstrong.

Next week we will be learning… to design and make moving puppets during DT Challenge Days!

Autumn 1 Week 3 – Dragon Poems

Stars of the Week: Fintan and Saraea

This week in Class 2 we have been writing repetitive poems about dragons. The class got creative thinking about how to use expanded noun phrases to add detail to sentences, and have described some amazing beasts. Saraea used alliteration to great effect, and Fintan chose to introduce rhyme into his poem. Excellent work, superstars!

Read the poems by our stars here:

My dragon
My dragon has a winding tail
that’s covered in a heavy coat of mail.
My dragon has a spiky head
that fills everyone with dread.
My dragon has vivid eyes
that warn everyone to go and hide.
That is my dragon.
– by Fintain

My dragon
My dragon has a spiky head.
My dragon has big sharp shiny teeth with wings.
My dragon has a brown belly.
My dragon has a scaly tail.
My dragon has sharp shiny claws.
– by Saraea

Autumn 1 Week 2 – The Saints of Our School

Stars of the Week: Deborah and Shaye

In R.E. we have been learning about the saints of our school, St. Saviour and St. Mary, and have written some acrostic poems reflecting on important aspects of their lives.

Here are the poems written by our superstars:

Jesus joy.
Everything we do God will save us.
Sad stuff God will help us.
Up in the sky Jesus is there.
Show the way Lord.
– by Deborah

Mary is kind to all people.
All people are kind to other people.
Rocking baby Jesus.
Your baby is in a manger.
– by Shaye

Welcome to Class 2!

Stars of the Week: All of Class 2

Well done to all of Class 2 for making a fantastic start to the year. You all came to school ready to put our Class Charter into action – being kind and caring, trying your best and respecting our environment.

Keep it up, superstars!

Scientific Enquiry

Stars of the Week: Astrid and Ethan

In science, Class 2 have been using different types of scientific enquiry to ask and answer questions. This week, Astrid thought really carefully about our investigation into patterns in the way things grow, and Ethan used information books with great curiosity to find out more about the lifecycles of insects. The independent thinking and in-depth questioning was really impressive, well done!

Keep it up, science superstars!

We explored the question, ‘Do all apples have the same number of seeds?’
The class then came up with further questions about the way fruit grow and spotted some wonderful patterns in the centre of the apples.
Ask a grownup to help you cut an apple this way. Do they all have the same pattern inside?

What other questions can you come up with?

Sports Week

Stars of the Week: Fisayo and Olivia

Yesterday Class 2 wrote acrostic poems for Sports Week, celebrating their favourite sporting activities. Fisayo and Olivia both challenged themselves to use alliteration to make their poems even more exciting to listen to!
