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.

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.

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.

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’.

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.
