Spring 1 – Week 2

Stars of the week: Yoki & Albert

We have loved immersing ourselves in The Great Fire of London this week. The children have already learnt so many facts! Next week we will be retelling the story of Vlad, a character from the story we have been reading.

In basketball we started our unit by exploring dribbling. Class 2 did an excellent job of incorporating the important skills, despite the miserable weather!

Our computing topic this term is Digital Photography. We spent time this week looking at how to take a photograph and next week we will be thinking about what makes a good photograph and the landscape and portrait format.

Autumn 2 – Week 7

Stars of the week: Lola & Jacob W

In English this week we took inspiration from our science trip and wrote diary entries as if we were astronauts. We have nearly finished publishing them and look forward to sharing them with you after the break.

We have had so much festive fun in Class 2 this week; from Christmas jumper day to our Christmas lunch, from our Class party to the Frosty fair. Thank you again to the Friends of Cathedral for organising such a special fair for us.

 

Autumns 2 – Week 6

Stars of the week: All of class 2

Well done Class 2 on a fantastic performance in the Cathedral yesterday. You all sung beautifully!

We have been exploring materials in science this half-term and this week did an experiment to make materials waterproof. We learnt how wax can create a layer so water does not get absorbed.

 

Autumn 2 – Week 5

Stars of the week: Phoebe & Malique

We had an excellent trip to the science museum on Thursday. We had a space workshop, where we learnt all about what it would be like to be an astronaut! Afterwards we explored the galleries and did a materials treasure hunt. We discussed the different properties of materials and their suitability to certain jobs. We are going to use this trip to inspire our writing in English over the next few days.

       

Autumn 2 Week 4

Stars of the week: Justin & Anusha

We have been thinking ahead to Christmas already – we have been writing Christmas prayers and preparing our hall Christmas display.

Class 2 have been making excellent progress in gymnastics. The coach was really impressed with how quickly they have picked up their jumping skills and the ability to do a forward and backward roll. Keep it up Class 2!

  

Well done Class 2 for working so hard in your assessments this week too!

Next week in maths we will continue exploring the column addition and subtraction method.

Autumn 2 – Week 3

Stars of the week – The whole of Class 2

Well done Class 2 for an exceptional collective worship and for behaving so beautifully on our theatre trip.

We have started looking at column addition in maths this week. We used dienes to help us understand the new method. We will keep building on this method and look at column subtraction too.

Last Friday was SPANISH DAY! We thoroughly enjoyed our flamenco dancing, making maracas, learning the days of the week and our Spanish themed lunch. We also had some quiet time to read in our new library.

Autumn 2 – Week 2

Stars of the week: Miriam & Samuel

Well done to Class 5 for learning their lines and practising the song for our collective worship next week. We cannot wait to share all our learning with the school and our parents!

We will be constructing playgrounds in DT this half -term. We took a trip to Little Dorret to get some inspiration of the sort of equipment we might want to recreate.

Autumn 2 – Week 1

Stars of the week: Rory & Arabella

In English this week, we having started exploring the book THE TWITS. It has inspired our descriptive writing of the disgusting characters and has provided opportunities for learning about nouns, adjectives and verbs.

This term we have a gymnastics coach teaching us on a Wednesday afternoon. In their first session, Class 2 got familiar with the equipment, practised roly-polys and learnt different jumps.
