Week ending 22.09.17

Wow, what a week! This week class 2W have had a super week exploring number, pirate facts, colour and....Beamanor! The children have really started to shine, and I'm getting to know each of them more with each day - both their likes and dislikes as well as their strengths and areas to work on. Take a look at our photo gallery for a snapshot of our work this week.

Pirate trip to Beaumanor

Tomorrow (Thursday) we'll be going on our trip to Beaumanor. The weather forecast doesn't look too good - so wear your wellies / boots 2W and a coat with a hood! You don't need to bring anything with you, snack and packed lunch are provided from Mrs Dooley (unless you would normally have sandwiches from home on a Thursday). We will take our school water bottles with us on the trip so if your bottle isn't in school then please bring a bottle of water. See you in the morning pirates!

Cap'n Winfield!

Pirate Performance 15.9.17

Thank you everyone for being amazing pirates today and starting off our topic. We have enjoyed reading different pirate poems this week and have writtten a class one together and one of our own. In Numeracy we have been reading coordinates on a treasure map and given directions using north, south, east and west. 

Next week we will learn more pirate facts and start counting our pirate coins in 2s , 5s and 10s. Practice counting at home in 2,5, and 10.

Spellings are in the back of reading records and attached at the bottom of this page if you ever can't find them. If we've highlighted some spellings, we'd like you to focus on those. However, if none are highlighted, please try to learn all of them!

12.09.17 - Request for help!

Next Thursday (21st September) Year 2 are going on our trip to Beaumanor Hall. We need parent helpers to enable the trip to go ahead. Please come and let me know if you're free for a fun pirate day out! Thank you!


Welcome back to a new year at Jesse Gray! I hope that you've all had a fantastic summer break. We've had a wonderful first day in Class 2W - we've read the story 'I want my hat back' by Jon Klassen. We've talked about what hats mean to us - they are part of our JG identity, they keep us safe from the sun etc and we also discussed how we can put our thinking caps on! We designed a new hat for the bear from the story, sketched the two ain characters and did some potato printing! The children behaved impeccably and were an absolute delight to share our first day together!

Weekly Challenge : Parrots!

Can you find out if it's true pirates liked to have parrots. You could draw me a parrot or tell me any facts about pirates and their parrots.

Do you know the name of the pirate from a book Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson who had a parrot?
