17.7.17 LAST WEEK !
Hello and welcome to the last week in Year 2. We had fun on Friday, having our Royal Party and making Jam tarts. I enjoyed meeting new and old parents during the afternoon.
This week we have Mediveal day on Thursday which I'm looking forward to. We will also be sending lots of paintings and books home this week so it would be great if the children could bring in a spare plastic bag.
We had an amzing time at the space centre, the children were amazing at staying up late and taking part in the activities. Please look at the photo gallery for photos of the evening.
Thank you for all your cheering as the children took part in sports day. I was so busy in the afternoon I didn't take any photos but please look at the gallery for some of the morning events.
Our pilgramage week 29.6.17
We have had a wonderful week, we have talked about what special journeys we have made and on Wednesday we went on our own school pilgramage with Year 5. We loved having their support and did little activities connected to the special words thank you, sorry, please, I love you. In class we learnt about improtant people in the Bible and Jewish Torah. We did drama, craft and discussions on Joseph, Jonah, Daniel, David and Moses. We thought of words to described them and why they were improtant to Chrisitans and Jews.
Have a look at our photos in the gallery on the right.
Partake Theatre 23.6.17
Today we had visitors from Partake theatre to share their knowledge of times during the medieval times. We have had fun playing with wooden toys that helped with eye hand co-ordination to help prepare for battle! We saw how a knight would dress himself in his armour and got to see some of the different arrows used and other weapons. Working in groups we prepared some herbal medicines to treat our wounds and illnesses we might catch while living in a castle. In the afternoon we wrote letters using Goose feather quills and ink. There are more photos in our gallery on the right.
SPELLINGS: Due to the day being full of activities, we didn't have time to do our spellings today. We will try have a go on Monday . We haven't sent any home today.
The class were fantastic and walked all the way to and from the West Bridgford tennis club- it was quite a way and they were so good. The children played a few games and learnt some new skills. Thank you to all the mums who walked with us too. Ihave put a few photos in the photo section.
Happy Father's day this weekend - we hope you like our sunflowers we sent home. If you could plant them ouside and let us know how they are doing , we would love to know if any flower. We have measured them and watched them grow over the last few weeks.
The children used fimo to make an unusual flower to add to the pots.
We have written amazing instruction on how to make a dragon fly/breathe fire this week and solved mathematical clues to get out of a castle, we were locked into 5 rooms and had to find a code for the key. Just like Fort Boyard!
Week ending 9th June Welcome back to our last half term!
We have started our new topic on Castles and have named important parts and found out what they are used for. We drew a castle in our books that look great. We have loved watching a short film called the Dragon Slayer and have written all about it using amazing adverbs.
We have checked on our sunflowersand are really pleased to see they have grown, some have been nibbled a bit! We will measure them again.
We had our last tennis session today with coach Hugh from the West Bridgford tennis club, he would like us to join him next week at the club off Wilford lane, letters will come home tonight about this. We would like some parents to help walk to and from the club!
Week ending 19th May
We have been doing our Year 2 reading and maths SAT papers this week and I have been so impressed with the children. We have a few more to do next week and will be writing more stories too. At the moment we are reading Mrs Armitage. We have had fun doing dance with Mr Smith and Miss White has taught us more netball/ basketball skills. When it stopped raining we have been outside inthe school garden to repot our sunflowers and sketch some of the plants. We have painted our own flowers and they look lovely and bright in our classroom.
Next week is the Year 6 Fair on Friday, don't forget to bring some money to spend on the stalls!
Week ending 12th May
This week we've been looking at the book Oi, Frog! to help improve and extend our sentences. We've tried to use different conjunctions (and, but, so, because etc) to add detail and interest to our work. We've also looked at asking questions and how to punctuate these. In our maths we've been looking at word problems, trying to find which key words in the question tell us what to do. We've been carefully showing our working out to check that we haven't made mistakes. If it's a two step problem, we've ensured that we have written out both steps as number sentences. We've been enjoying our science too, looking at the different conditions that plants need to grow. Some of our cress seeds aren't following the normal pattern that we'd expect - how interesting! In art we've been painting our own flower pictures using bright, contrasting colours and they look really wonderful!
21.4.17 Summer Term
