Spring A 2022
Another very busy half-term in Class 2!
In English, Year 1's have been working hard to transform boring sentences into exciting sentences! The first focus text was the book, 'The Way Back Home' by Oliver Jeffers, followed by 'Grandad's Island' by Benji Davies. The children worked so hard to learn so many new skills to use in their writing, from adjectives and verbs to onomatopoeia and similes.
Year 2's have been equally busy with Miss Norton as they explored the story 'Beegu' written by Alexis Deacon before having to write an apology letter to our classroom's felt-tips, persuading the upset pens to stay with us after reading 'The Day The Crayons Quit' by Drew Daywalt.
In Maths, Year 1's have been mastering numbers to 50 learning about place value and exploring how we can represent different numbers using a range of resources. We have also introduced our measurement topic and have had great fun measuring the length of various classroom objects using cubes, spoons and rulers.
Meanwhile Year 2's have been observing and recording variables across school in their statistics topic, in order to produce tally-charts and pictograms representing their data.
Measuring: Exploring language associated with length and height
We compared the length of classroom objects to the length of our spoons. Children had to find objects longer, shorter and equal to their spoon.
We measured classroom objects using cubes.
Science: We have been learning about living things and their habitats. After working hard to produce posters about world habitats, the children were very excited when Jessica brought in Lucky the Goat for us to meet. Thank you to Jessica and her mum for answering all our questions about Lucky and his habitat.
Safer Internet Day 8.2.22: We had a class discussion about ways in which we can ensure we stay safe when online, using the SMART rules. Children worked in teams to decide which information would be safe to share online and which was personal information that should not be shared. This led to why might use avatars when playing games online, and the children created their own avatars!
Children's Mental Health Week 7.2.22: To celebrate children's mental health week, we had lots of well-being activities. We engaged in yoga sessions, as well as enjoying a 'Draw with Rob' linked to our Science/Art topics. Another of our activities involved children each designing a card for another member of the class in secret, with a positive reminder of what makes that person special. The children all had great big smiles on their faces at the end of the day when they received their secret cards.
The Queen's Platinum Jubilee: The children created their own crowns to honour the Queen's Platinum Jubilee
Autumn Term (2021/2022)
English: The children could not believe it when they received a video message from a local vet asking for their help! The vet had an unusual patient.. a cheetah! Luckily Class 2 were cheetah experts after researching this species in previous lessons. They got to work on producing some fantastic non-chronological reports, all about cheetahs, ready to pass on to the vet!
Science: We concluded our Animals (Including Humans) topic by exploring the human senses. Pupils made their way round five stations, each tailored to challenge a particular sense. We had a particular giggle on the tasting station!
Computing: This term we have been researching various topics using the laptops. The children have researched the different animal categories, as well as researching cheetahs in particular, to provide them with information they could include in their reports in English.
Thank you to everyone who voted for our class to win the Morrisons Community pumpkin competition on facebook! A big thank you to Morrisons Bridlington for donating the pumpkins -as you can see the children were very happy!
Science: Sorting Materials
Ordering numbers to 100
Our new reading area
Thank you to everyone who has been keeping me updated on what you have been getting up to while you have been at home. Please keep sending me messages and pictures of your activities.
I have put together some of the pictures you have been sending me below for all to see.
Welcome back Class TWO!
After a lovely break over the summer, the children have come back raring to go. Our topic this half term is celebrations. We will be focusing on our local area, reading the book 'The Three Little Pigs' and linking all other areas of learning to this.
Class 2 tasted various fruits and vegetables before planning and designing their own milkshake or smoothie. Children carefully selected fruit and vegetables that would complement each other and began the making process. Children sampled other children's drinks and discussed what they enjoyed about each of them.
Children used different ways to change the modelling clay. They pulled, squeezed, rolled, twisted, bent and squashed it to make different models. Children recorded the different ways they changed the material when making their different animals. Our next step is to understand the difference between reversible and irreversible changes to materials.
Jigsaw Healthy Me
Children identified and categorised healthy and unhealthy foods and activities. The children sang a song to help them remember some of the things which will support a healthy lifestyle.
Exploring and grouping materials
Children were exploring, identifying and classifying materials into groups. Children selected and discussed the materials. They grouped them according the their properties. Lots of fantastic vocabulary was used during the lesson, as children challenged each other.
Building Our Sentences
Children were building sentences in the 'sentence zone'. Children had to firstly check their sentence made sense then improve it using an adjective (describing word).
Problem Solving Bingo!
Children were testing their knowledge of more and less than a given number. Using number lines and 100 squares children challenged each other in our Friday maths reasoning and problem solving lesson. We had many winners but we all had great fun.
Thank you to everyone who joined us to find out about their child’s new class including timetables, homework, their routines and teacher expectations. We would also like to thank you for your very positive feedback.
For those of you who were unable to join us please find above the powerpoint from the evening; we hope that you find it helpful.
Class 2's speaking and listening has improved throughout the year. All children spoke clearly and confidently.
Bob's Super Special Space Commands
Children were learning:
To identify and name a variety of common animals that are carnivores, herbivores and omnivores
Children explored various animals and what they ate. They also completed various activities: sorting, finding and matching animals to what they may eat.
Class 2's Nature Walk to Buckton
Children were learning how to:
Identify and name a variety of common wild and garden plants, including deciduous and evergreen trees.
Class 2 spent the afternoon looking for signs of spring. Their challenge was to learn about the different trees and identify if they were evergreen or deciduous. The children also got the opportunity to see various habitats around the nature walk, such as birds nests, owl boxes and rabbit burrows. The children used the iPads to take photos and make short videos to record their learning and to give them the opportunity to compare seasonal changes during their next visit.
The Discovery of 'The Egg'
Children were learning to:
use reasoning to predict
write for different purposes
use adjectives to describe
We recently had a visit from two very different dragons. Lorna (the good dragon) tasked Class 2 with looking after her egg while she hid in the classroom ceiling. Using magical hidden messages and secret hiding places we were able to communicate with Lorna completing many tasks along the way, including: writing predictions about what was inside the egg; describing the baby dragon once it had hatched and writing questions to both Lorna and Groot (the bad dragon).
Bing BunnyHave fun making a colourful picture with Bing and Flop.
