Well done Class 2 on a brilliant first half-term! The weeks have flown by, but you have managed to squeeze in so much excellent learning.
This week in art we finished our Matisse inspired collages (scroll down for photographs of our excellent art). Class 2 worked really hard to create different tones for their water colour backgrounds and they focused on the skill of ‘drawing with scissors’.
We also finished writing our dragon stories in English, which Class 2 are incredibly proud of. We will keep these in the book corner so they can share their writing with friends.

In Maths this week, we have started looking at addition and subtraction. We have been exploring our number bonds to 20 and building our fluency with adding and subtracting. We will continue this next week, looking at part whole models and bar models to help us visualise the number sentences.
In English we have been writing our dragon stories. We have been trying to include character and setting descriptions, interesting verbs and onomatopoeias. We cannot wait to share these with you!
In P.E. we have continued our mini-marathon training. We have also been trying to get our PB in fitness and practising our throwing and catching ball and bean bag skills.
Stars of the week: Cruz and Jacob A
In English this week we have been planning our dragon stories. We have been learning about how adjectives and similes can describe characters and settings. Next week we will begin writing them.
In Maths we have been counting in 2, 5, 10s and even 3s. This is helping us to think about our times tables. Next week in maths we will be focusing on fluency with addition and subtraction.
We have been experimenting with drawing with scissors instead of pencils, in art this week. This is inspired by Matisse’s artwork. It has helped us to build our skills for our final collage piece, which we will be starting next week.
Stars of the week: Ezra & Betty
We started our mini marathon training this week in PE. We discussed the importance of setting a steady pace when we run for a long time. Well done Class 2 on persevering when you felt tired.
In English we have been writing instructions for how to take care of a dragon. We learnt that an important part of the writing process is to check our writing afterwards and make improvements. Class 2 showed great team work when they did this with a peer. We cannot wait to show our finished writing to you.
Stars of the week: Ava & Joshua
We have had another busy week in Class 2. In maths this week, we continued looking at the place value of numbers and have been comparing different numbers.
In English, we have been writing poems about our dragons and publishing them. We look forward to sharing them with you!
We put on our drama hats and brought alive the adventures of Ibn Battuta in our history lesson this week. We were amazed at all the countries we explored. We also checked on our school timeline to find out when Ibn Battuta was alive – we discovered it was in the 1300s!
Stars of the week: Heidi & Kayden
In English this week, we have been describing dragons and designing our own. We have drafted descriptive poems about our dragons and will be editing and publishing them next week.
In Maths, we have been looking at number and place value. We have been exploring the different ways of representing numbers with dienes. Next week we will continue representing numbers to 100 and partitioning numbers into their tens and ones.
Last Friday, we completed our motivational posters. These will help inspire us throughout the year, when we need to show resilience in our learning.
Thank you to everyone for your time on Tuesday. Here are the slides for those who couldn’t make it.
Stars of the week: Charlotte and Maxwell
Well done Class 2 for such a brilliant first week back at school. You are showing really mature behaviour in class and focusing on your learning. Keep it up!
This week we created our Class Charter and used drama to show the different rules we think we need in our classroom and at playtime.
In English, Class 2 wrote a letter to Porsha and Miss Campbell all about themselves. Next week, we will begin exploring the book “Tell me a Dragon”.
In Maths we have been recapping place value understanding and looking at the representation of tens and ones.
