Spring - Week 1

Welcome back Class 2! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas holiday and are ready for the busy term ahead.

In English this week, we have been looking at adding the –ing, -ed and –er suffix to the end of root words. We have also completed a big write all about what we did during our Christmas break.

In maths, we have been doubling and halving a range of different numbers to 20 (and beyond!).

In addition to all of this, we have also started to learn about algorithms in computing, planted beans in science, practiced our tennis skills in PE and identified how London has changed since 1666 in history.

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Leake

Autumn 2, Week 1

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.

Reminder

-      All children will need a packed lunch on Wednesday- if they are going to mini Olympics.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

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!

In English, we have been planning and writing our own Mr Benn adventure stories. The children have had a range of great adventure ideas and I am looking forward to reading them when we finish them next week.

In maths, we have been learning our number bonds to 10. We have used a range of resources and visual representations to help us.

Reminders:

  • Open session – Wednesday 24th October - 3:30pm- 6:30pm
  • Shoe boxes- Please could we have any spare shoeboxes for our DT lesson on Wednesday.
  • Spellings- on this week’s spellings you will notice that some of the words start with a capital letter, this is an error and they should all be in lower case.

Have a lovely weekend.

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.

Autumn 1, Week 4

This week in class 2 we have been working very hard.

In English, we have learnt about what we need to include in our sentences: capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.

In maths, we have looked at using our counting skills to find missing numbers on a 100 square and number line. We have also applied our number knowledge to challenging questions.

In addition to all of this, we have been learning our harvest festival song, retelling the creation story, identifying physical features of the Arctic and describing properties of materials.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
