It has been a busy week in class 2 this week, the children have all been amazing and tried their best on the assessments that we have carried out. Well done class 2!
Today we had a special delivery into Class 2. A new construction area has arrived for us to use during afternoon in our provision based learning. The children all helped to unpack and explore the blocks and even managed to set up the new shelving unit with very little help.
Have a wonderful half term Class 2. Stay Safe.
This week came to a close with a memorable experience. Today was Spanish day in school, the children have enjoyed learning numbers, colours and making drinks in Spanish. For lunch we enjoyed a traditional Spanish meal of Burritos or Chicken and Rice.
In writing this week the children have been thinking about exclamation sentences and how we can add excitement to our writing by using exclamation marks.
In Maths, the children have consolidated their knowledge of number lines and some children have moved on to expanded column addition.
This week the children have all brought home a letter for our Legoland trip.
This week we have continued our work on the Steadfast Tin Soldier, sequencing the story and writing about what happened. The children have worked really hard on this and have produced some amazing writing. Well done everyone!
In Maths, we have been investigating different ways of measuring looking at length and capacity. The children really enjoyed estimating and filling containers to check for accuracy.
On Tuesday, our Year 2 children were trained up as Mini Playground Leaders by Mr.Johnson. Within the next few weeks the children will begin to lead small activities on the playground to groups of younger children.
A big thank you to all the parents who attend our parents session this afternoon. The children have produced some fantastic musical instruments and we are looking forward to playing them next week.
The end of another busy week in Class 2. This week we have started our learning on the story 'The Steadfast Tin Soldier' by Hans Christian Andersen. We have been thinking very carefully about the different characters in the story and wrote character descriptions using expanded noun phrases.
In Maths, we have focussed on time and telling the time to within 5 minutes. It is pleasing to see so many children wearing a watch for school now.
This week we have continued our learning about Subordinate conjunctions and clauses. We completed our writing to the council before moving on to using commas in a list.
In Maths, we have focussed on using number lines to find the difference, make jumps of 1s, 5s, and 10s using our knowledge of numbers and the number system.
In P.E, we were taken on board a pirate ship and became ship mates for the day! We had lots of fun 'scrubbing the decks', 'climbing the rigging' and 'walking the plank!'
The end of another exciting week in Class 2. This week the children received a very distressing letter (this is not a real situation as many of you have been informed by the children!). The council have informed Miss. Beedham that they have decided to build a new housing estate on the playground, field and woodland area. Miss. Beedham asked Class 2 to help. We have used our knowledge of subordinating conjunctions and clauses to help us write a letter back to the council to tell them why we need to keep our outdoor space.
(Class 2 have been very successful in stopping this from happening with their powers of persuasive writing!)
In Maths, the children have used their knowledge of place value and partitioning to begin to understand how to we can use a number line to make jumps of tens and fives to support with our understanding of addition strategies.
In P.E, the children have enjoyed exploring space, creating shapes in high and low positions.
We look forward to starting our new topic on Monday, Beat, Band and Boogie.
This week in Class 2 the children were tasked with a very important mission, to solve the crimes committed by some local criminals. The shape criminal mastermind and his followers have been going around Goldthorpe committing terrible offences. Some children followed the clues given to them to help them identify the shape culprit responsible for the crime. Other children helped the police by writing descriptions of the shapes so the police could use them in their wanted posters!
