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.

Spring 2 – Week 4

Stars of the week: All of Class 2

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.


Week 1 Spring 2

Stars of the week: The whole of Class 2

Well done Class 2 for behaving so beautifully on our class trip to the Museum of London. Our day was filled with learning about The Great Fire of London and we enjoyed a story-telling workshop which brought it all alive. Class 2 are now historical experts – we will share some of our Great Fire of London learning in our collective worship this half term.

Class 2 have also been working hard this week learning about time; o’clock, half past, quarter past, quarter to and even 5 minute intervals. Please keep practising this at home.


Spring 1 – Week 6

Stars of the week: Lennon & Joshua

We have been researching and creating Indian animal fact posters this week, inspired by our reading of The Jungle Book. We will be presenting our facts to one another on Friday.

In art we were sketching different Thames landmarks, inspired by Hokusai’s Japanese landmarks and will be creating prints of them after half-term.

Well done on an excellent half-term Class 2. Enjoy a restful break.

Spring 1 – Week 5

Stars of the week: Betty & Ava

In Class 2 this week we have been exploring division and the two ways of solving division questions; sharing equally and equal groups of. Well done Class 2 – your confidence in this has really grown.

In English we wrote and published kenning poems inspired by The Jungle Book – we cannot wait to share them with you!

We have been exploring the meaning behind The Lord’s Prayer in RE and this week we discussed temptation. Class 2 used drama to act out how we can use the phrase ‘What would God do?’ to help guide us when we are tempted by things which are not good.

Spring 1 – Week 5

Stars of the week: Zein & Kayden

We have been learning about microhabitats in Science this week. Class 2 explored the different locations we might find microhabitats and carefully observed the minibeasts in a soil microhabitat. Well done Class 2 for demonstrating so many excellent scientific skills!

In Maths we are continuing to build on our multiplication and division skills. Please keep practising the division inverse once you are secure with multiplication facts. E.g. If I know 5 multiplied by 4 = 20, I know 20 divided by 5 = 4.

Next week in English we will start reading ‘The Jungle Book’.

Spring 1 – Week 3

Stars of the week: Elena & Maxwell

Our art topic this half-term is on Japanese art. We created beautiful cherry blossom pictures this week. We thought about replicating the style with calligraphy brush strokes and making good colour choice for the blossom and birds. We will be hanging them in our classroom for you to enjoy.

In maths this week we have been exploring repeated addition and multiplication.
