27th February 2015

This week in Literacy we have been doing Mr Benn stories, and we are going to write our own stories. (Luke). In Literacy we have been learning about Mr Benn and we have thought about some story ideas (Amelia) and some fantastic words for putting in stories. I learnt about a story hill. A story hill is a hill that has a beginning, a middle and an end. (Toby) In this fantastic week when we did RE, we did amazing, epic spice boxes and put some exotic smelling spices inside. (Ralph) In RE we made our own sparkly spice boxes because we finished learning about Shabbat and at the end of Shabbat they make a souvenir, a spice box. At the end of Shabbat, they let the Kiddush cup overflow into the saucer, they let the wine overflow into the Kiddush cup. Shabbat ends when you see only three stars in the sky. It is very sad when Shabbat ends because it is a special time and it is very peaceful. (Elin). On Tuesday afternoon, we did PE with Mrs Hoar. It was outside and we did racing. It was so fun and everybody‘s team did really well (Katie). In Spellings our spellings are ‘oo’ words and we have been practising them in our spelling books. (Connie). In Maths we have been learning about co-ordinates. Co-ordinates are on a map and they go up and across. ABCDE goes across, 12345 goes up. Down the long corridor and up the steep stairs is how we remember it. (Dominic). Yesterday we learnt about right angles and I really thought it was interesting and amazing. (Isabelle). In Maths we have been learning about right angles and we made right angle fish (Oliver). We have also been doing right angles on the computers (Daniel). We had an excellent, brilliant and fantastic lesson. In Maths we made right angle fish and went round the classroom to find right angles (Iris). In Collective Worship, our new value is Justice. This means being fair. My sister she worked very hard and she got £1 for her pocket money and I didn’t work hard and I got £1 for my pocket money. Next week I’m going to work really hard and that will be fair. (Chloe). Today it is the book fair. People are going into the school hall to buy books (Emily).

This week we have been learning about amazing adjectives in our Literacy lessons. We were imagining different animals from the Galapagos Islands and coming up with our own words to describe them. (Ralph). This morning we did PE with Mr Jefferies – we were looking at the difference between attacking and defending headers and we played a football game and it was really fun (Isabelle). Today they were lots of goals (Jake). In music we have been listening to songs and singing them and it was fantastic (Joseph). In spellings our spelling words are ‘oa’ and ‘il’ and ‘o-e’. We looked at these in phonics and in handwriting (Emily). Earlier in the week we have been looking at time connectives (Adam). In our Maths, we are learning about fractions – 1/2s, 1/3, 1/4s and we had a game where we were trying to find fractions of numbers (Hannah). In ICT we started making our factsheet. We chose an animal and we learnt how to edit and write a title. (Katie).

Mrs Nichols and Mrs Wilson want to say thank you for the quality of home learning last week. It was obvious that everyone has been really captivated by our topic, and a huge amount of effort went into either the factsheets or the diaries. Well done!

Class 2 - 30th January 2015

This week in Literacy we learned how to draw a mindmap and it was really fun, but quite hard. (Katie) A mindmap is useful for writing down information and organising it (Katie).   In Literacy we have been doing mindmaps about the Titanic and Under the Ocean (Ralph). 

 In Computing we have been finding information about the oceans .  This week we have copied and pasted our own information and learned how to save it (Connie).  In computing we have been finding out facts about our favourite animals and fishes under the sea (Isabelle).  We have learned some sea songs in Music and I loved it.  (Ethan). 

 Today I want to say a big thank you to Mr Jefferies because he has been teaching us new football skills (Chloe).   Today we have been doing football with Mr Jefferies and he has been teaching us dribbling, passing and chipping.  Next week we are learning headering (Luke).  

In our Maths we have been doubling with Mrs Wilson and Mrs Nichols.  We are trying really hard to learn all the doubles up to 20 (Hannah). 

Mrs Nichols videoed us in the role play area and turned it into a short movie (Morgan).  When we were doing the video, we pretended we had a telescope and I was spinning the globe, and we took turns to sketch and steer the ship (Barley).
