Week Beginning 26th November

This week we have begun to look at The Gingerbread story and had great fun role playing the parts. 

In maths we have been looking at fact families and how from one adding sum you can create another add sum and two subtraction sums, using those three magic numbers. We have also been investigating 2D and 3D shapes. We have searched the school 'shape-spotting' - and identified the key properties of lots of common 2D shapes. The Y2 children found out which 3D shapes roll and which do not, while the Y1 children sorted shapes according to their properties.

We also played maths games on the iPads using this website: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/Search.aspx?Subject=16&AgeGroup=2. Hit the Button is a favourite game in Class 2! 

This week the children have each been given a jotter. This is an exercise book that gives them a space in which to be creative and let their imaginations run wild! These are primarily used during wet playtimes and are to remain in school. 

We hope you enjoyed the Christmas Market and the fantastic gifts the children had made. Next Friday is the Christingle Service at the Church at 2pm. Please bring in an orange by Wednesday so they can make one with Class 5.

Week Beginning 19th November

This week we have been looking at adjectives that will help make our sentences more interesting. We have been looking at ‘Norman the Slug’ to help us with this. 

In Numeracy we have been looking at adding and how our three ‘Magic Numbers’ in a sum means that we can use these numbers to create another add sum e.g. 5+3=8 means I also know 3+5=8. We have also been tackling addition sums with missing numbers e.g. ?+4=9. We have been proving whether answers are true or false and trying to reason and explain why they are right or wrong.

We have also been sorting out some of our things for the Christmas Market next Friday.

Week beginning 12th November

We started this week with a trip to The Plough and Rosemoor Gardens. Unfortunately, the film projector at The Plough was broken and so we popped in, had a snack and a look around, and then got back on the coach to go to Rosemoor earlier than planned! At Rosemoor, we were able to enjoy an extra hour in the Brash playing on the playground equipment and sandpit, and exploring the plants and minibeasts. After lunch, we enjoyed a workshop and learned about the habitat that a robin needs to live a happy life in the garden. We explored the gardens and found food, water and nest building materials for the robin. We collected these materials and listened quietly to hear a robin singing in the trees. At the Brash, we spent time working as a team to build a beautiful, comfortable nest for a robin. We really enjoyed our day at Rosemoor Gardens and are hoping to return again later on in the Spring term.

On Tuesday, we split in the afternoon for carousel activities. This term the Year 1 children are enjoying doing PE outdoors with Mr Bedford, while the Year 2 children are doing Art with Miss Smith. The Year 2's are really enjoying this opportunity to work together as a year group and produce some really thoughtful and careful artwork.

On Friday, the Year 2 children found out about fire safety with our annual Fire Safety talk from the fire service.

In the evening, many of the children returned to school for the Lantern Parade and fireworks.

All in all - a busy week with lots of learning and fun!

Week beginning 5th November

What a busy week! On Wednesday we had the 17th century visitors in school and learnt all about life in London in the 17th century leading up to the Great Fire of London. We found out about family life and how children had to go out and work to earn money for the family. We learned that a family would have lived in a crowded room with their parents and all their siblings. We found out about the clothes that people wore and that Monday was 'washday'. On Sunday the mother would make a pie and take it to the bakery to cook in the baker's oven because she didn't have an oven of her own at home. We had a go at dressing-up and played with the 17th century toys. 

On Thursday we had our class assembly and were all amazing! Thank you to all those family members who were able to join us. We talked about our topic learning and shared the film we made of the cardboard houses burning in the car park. We also had a visit from a fire engine and some fire fighters who showed us the fire engine and let us all have a go at using the hose. 

On Friday we dressed up and raised money for Children In Need. We made a giant Pudsey bear out of coins and enjoyed the cake sale and other stalls.

More fun next week with a visit to The Plough and Rosemoor Gardens!

Week Beginning 29th October

What a fantastic week of learning  we have had in Class 2 this week - sandwich making, fires and paint!

In Literacy this week we have looked at Instruction writing and had to talk Mrs Edwards through how to make a sandwich. This was quite tricky to make sure we explained clearly, exactly what she had to do. Then on Wednesday afternoon we were luckily to make our own sandwich. We had to choose either cheese spread or jam to have in our sandwich or in some cases both! Some of us found it a bit tricky to cut the bread but we persevered and did it in the end. We all though our sandwich was delicious and some of us even licked the plate clean! This led onto some fantastic instruction writing on how to make a sandwich on Thursday and Friday. 

In art we have started making a picture to show our parents in our assembly next week. We had to mix some of the primary colours to create a fire background to our picture.

Today we re-enacted the Great Fire of London in the carpark. For home learning we had made a house we didn't mind burning and the houses were fantastic. We set fire to one house and saw how in 1666 because the houses were so close together and made from wood they burned very quickly. We were fire fighters and tried to use water squirters and buckets to put out the fire. Luckily our fire didn't last four days like it did in the Great Fire of London!

Remember our Class Assembly is next Thursday at 2.50pm.

Week Beginning 8th October

This week we have been authors and illustrators and created another page of our book “Not Last Night But The Night Before”. We have created our own class book and they are also displayed on our Proud Cloud in the cloakroom. 

We have in groups help create some Great Fire of London artwork as well.

Week beginning 1st October

This week we have had the pleasure of listening to Tom McLaughlin who read and told us about the books he has written and illustrated. He inspired us to do our own drawings. 

In Literacy we have been acting out our story and videoing ourselves and realising the role of the camera person to keep it steady and directed at the person! We have also thought about other characters who could appear on our page of the book and how they might come through the door. This created some fabulous language.

Wednesday and Thursday saw us peeling and cutting apples in preparation for making apple crumble to sell after school on Thursday. Every child made one to sell. The money raised will go towards getting a defibrillator at school. Thanks to Mrs Guymer for helping us.

Week Beginning 24th September

This week we have started looking at the book “Vlad and the Great Fire of London” and have been looking at what a front cover tells us. We have also started drawing pictures to retell the story of “Not Last Night and The Night Before”.

In phonics we have been looking at the sounds “sh” and “wh” and the children are getting more confident on spotting digraph and trigraph in words and segmenting and blending words.

In maths we are still looking at numbers 0-20 and how they are represented. This week we have been exploring arrow cards and looking in particular at how the numbers 10-20 are made.

We have fun using our new water play area this week and trying to pick up conkers with tweezers was funny!

Wow! What a fantastic Harvest Festival and weren’t Class 1 and 2 great with their Big Blue Tractor song. 

This week we have been continuing to look at numbers 1-20 and building these numbers with dienes and thinking how many tens and ones make these numbers.

We have been learning more actions to go with our book “Not Last Night But The Night Before” and the children are getting better at spotting the rhyming words.

The children may have started telling you about The Great Fire Of London. We have watched (several times!!!) a clip called Magic Grandad and The Great Fire. They thought it very strange that Samuel Pepys buried his cheese, wine and diaries in his garden.

Week Beginning 5th September

The children and staff have had a lovely few days exploring the classroom, getting to know where things are and getting to know each other. They have been showing us some of the things in their bags collected over the summer and have labelled some and written about a time in the holiday. The children were all proud of their work and it is now on the Proud Cloud wall in the cloakroom. We have been starting to look at a Number of the Day and so far explored 9 and 28. They have had a chance to explore our small outside learning area and have a go in our Pudding Lane Bakery. On Friday we had great fun doing parachute games in the hall.

We welcome Mrs Edwards who is training to be a teacher with Class Two this year. She is working with Mrs Slater and Miss Graves and the teaching team.
