This week Class 2 started their new topic, Land Ahoy. We received a wanted poster from Captain Jack Sparrow who is wanting some new pirate recruits. We thought about why we would make very good pirates and researched the different jobs that pirates had on the ships. We then wrote back to Captain Jack offering our services, we excitedly await his reply!
This week Class 2 were asked to be inspiring authors for the next chapter in Enid Blyton's 'latest' novel of The Faraway Tree. Enid Blyton wants to add a new chapter using a Fairy door that has been spotted at the bottom of the tree. To help Class 2 with this task, we designed our own fairy door before copying the design on to a piece of wood. Using this fairy door Class 2 then imagined (using fairy dust!) we could fit through the door into a magical new land, the land of imagination. I look forward to reading the amazing new chapters over the weekend!
Mrs Green needed Class 2's help this week. The new lunchtime menu meant she had to do a lot of extra weighing of ingredients and she didn't have time. Class 2 set to work, we collected, weighed and recorded the ingredients Mrs Green needed to prepare the food. We looked carefully at the different types of scales we had and how we needed to read them accurately. Once we had weighed the different amounts we recorded them on scales so Mrs Green could prepare the food much quicker next time. Well done Class 2.
