We have also used different apparatus during P.E, thought about forgiveness in RE, picked a range of items that helped us learn about the Great Fire of London in history and identified trees from their leaves in science.

This week in class 2, we have been learning all about World War 1. We started the week with an introduction about why World War 1 started and the countries that were involved. We then looked at what the trenches were and how the soldiers used them. We created our own trenches using mud in our outdoor area. We have also learnt about what children did during the war and the clothing men and women wore depending upon their jobs. We ended the week today with a remembrance day were we reflected and completed some activities around the school and in church.

As well as learning all about World War 1, class 2 have been completing some of their quizzes. These will continue next week.

Autumn 1, Week 7

We have had a fun week in Class 2 and it was lovely to meet many of you on our family day on Monday. I know that the children really enjoyed the afternoon and I hope you all did too!

Autumn 1, Week 6

Class 2 have been working extremely hard this week. In English, we have been looking at some of the different adventures Mr. Benn has been on. We mainly focused on Mr. Benn’s diving adventure. From using his adventure, we could identify and retell the events in the beginning, middle and end of the story. In maths, we have been learning how to count in 2s and 5s. We used a range of different resources to help us with our learning, these included, 100 squares, number lines and the outdoor washing line!

Over the past 6 weeks, I have been encouraging independence with changing of books and taking them home at the end of the day. Regular reminders are given to the children about this routine throughout the day and I can see this is improving.

A number of items of clothing, especially jumpers, remain un-named. This makes it very difficult to return them to their rightful owners. Please can you make sure that all items of clothing are named. In class, we have discussed and been working on putting our jumpers straight into our bags when they are taken off to avoid loss of items. This is work in progress and I am sure this will develop over the upcoming weeks.

Reminders:

-      When bringing in a snack, please could this be put into a named container or bag to avoid any confusion.

-      Class 2 family afternoon is on Monday (15th) 1:15pm-3:00 pm.

-      Rearranged open session is on Wednesday 24th 3:30pm-6:30pm. This is a drop in session to have a look at your child’s amazing work they have produced in their books.

Have a lovely weekend.

Summer week 5

We have had a very Royal week in Class 2! As a class, we wrote a letter to the Queen which today has been posted to Buckingham Palace to tell the Queen all about our last history topic. We ended the week today with a Royal tea party with Class 1. We ate jam scones and finger sandwiches and played pin the veil on the bride. Watch out for some photos of our party on the website soon.

This week the children in year 2 have been working extremely hard on their quizzes, while the years 1’s have been equally working hard on creating, planning and writing their own story book.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and enjoy watching the Royal wedding.
