DT week

Stars of the Week: Beatrice and Yvette

During DT week, class 2 learnt about castles and worked hard to create their own 3D castles by joining, folding and shaping paper. Beatrice and Yvette carried out their plans with lots of attention to detail. Not only did they work carefully on their own creations, they also shared their expertise by helping other members of the class.

Great work!

Please check back again soon to see the rest of our finished castles.

Dragon Poems

Stars of the Week: Astrid and Luca

Well done to Astrid and Luca who put lots of thought and creativity into their poetry inspired by our class text, Tell Me a Dragon by Jackie Morris. They gathered lots of exciting adjectives and used description carefully to paint a picture with words.

Astrid’s poem:
My dragon has spiky hard wings that are fire lava wings.

My dragon has claws like a dinosaur that has a sharp crescent on its claws.

My dragon has a sparkling fiery tail.

My dragon has diamond eyes that are magnificent.

My dragon blows fire out of its mouth that looks like lava.

Luca’s poem:
My dragon has magnificently long lava claws and a drizzly lava tail.

My dragon is cunning with fear.

My dragon lives in a haunted castle.

My dragon has hairs like fire.

My dragon has spiky wings.

My dragon has a spirally tail.

My dragon has magnificently long talons like a hawk.

Fruits of Friendship: Peace, Love and Joy

Stars of the Week: Sarah and Thomas

During World Faiths Week, Class 2 created prayers and artwork inspired by three of the fruits of friendship: peace, love and joy. The class explored Christian symbols and reflected on how they experience the fruits of friendship in their own lives. Well done to Sarah and Thomas who wrote some particularly thoughtful prayers.

A new start in Class 2!

Stars of the week: Sebastian and Selena

Well done to Class 2 who have made a great start to the year and have come back to school eager and ready to learn. Sebastian and Selena have set a great example this week by being prepared, listening carefully and trying their best in their learning.

Keep it up, superstars!

Our class charter reminds us to be kind, listen to others, care for the environment and try our best.

Happy Summer Holidays!

Class 2 have written some summertime-inspired poetry this week to get in the holiday spirit!

We thought back on all the different styles of poetry we have learnt this year, including rhyming poems, shape poems, acrostic poems, haikus, ‘sound sandwich’ poems and riddles.

Everyone chose their favourite style of poetry, and some children even combined to styles, for example by making a shape acrostic poem. See if you can spot which type of poem each person wrote.

Enjoy the summer holidays!

Sports Week!

Class 2 really enjoyed sports week and made lots of writing inspired by their love of sports.

Here are a few great examples!

A setting description of a football match
At kick off Kane frantically got the ball. I saw him score a goal. Raindrops of confetti sped down in the gushing wind. The sound of the ball against the net was a gigantic thud on the almost broken net. Lumps of grass flew up in the windy breeze. At half time somebody dropped a hotdog on the pitch. Straight away Loftus-Cheek kicked the sausage up with so much enthusiasm the shouting crowd cheered louder than the loudest thunder. The penalties started. England got through to the next round. The crowd cheered like a rumbling volcano. The crowd cautiously watched the match. Sweat covered the pitch.

Acrostic Poems about sports

Football is coming home.
Order one grand ball.
Over the high crossbar,
Ting, off the post!
Bang, in the net.
All the England players, go and celebrate.
Lots of happiness filled the air.
Loads of training before the next game.
by Kaspian

Salty water all around me.
Waves rising from below.
In coral reefs, fish dart about.
Musical sounds coming from bubbles.
Moving ripples appear on the surface.
Inside bubbles rainbows disappear.
Never letting water in my mouth.
Great fun for fish and me!
by Maia

The Tower of London!

Stars of the Week: All of Class 2

Well done to all of class 2 for their fantastic learning and behaviour on our recent trip to the Tower of London. Everyone showed great curiosity when exploring the Tower and asked excellent questions.

We even met Princess Elizabeth, daughter of King Edward IV, who taught us how to be knights and showed us around the king’s home! Have a look at our photos below.
