What have we been up to?

Monday 6th September 2021

Welcome to Holly class! It was great to meet all of the children today. Everyone was sent home with an introductory letter this afternoon with lots of information on about how things work in Year 2. You will find a copy of this on the ‘letters’ tab but please let me know if you have any questions.

Tuesday 7th September 2021

We have been revisiting counting in our 2s, 5s and 10s. By the end of Year 2, all children should be able to answer multiplication calculations for the 2, 5 and 10 times tables, both in order and mixed up. Once they can do this, they will earn a Bronze certificate and have the opportunity to move onto other times tables and get a head start on Year 3! Therefore, we are keen to get our times tables knowledge flowing as quick as possible so please have a look at TTRockstars below which will help! The children’s logins are on the inside of their reading records.

This week, the whole school have been reading and completing activities to do with the book, ‘The Word Collector.’ I have linked a YouTube video below of someone reading it, if you want to listen to it at home. Alongside this, we have been practising our alphabet and beginning to think about using alphabetical order to arrange words and then use this knowledge to use dictionaries and thesauruses! We love the alphabet song below.

Thursday 9th September

We were very lucky this afternoon to listen to a Gigs4Kids concert with Year 3. We were introduced to lots of instruments (clarinet, saxophone, keyboard, trumpet and a flute) and listened to some famous pieces.

Wednesday 22nd September

As part of our RE lesson today, we had a visit from 2 people! One was a nurse called Sue (Miss Inskip’s Mum) and one was training to be a nurse called Zoe (Miss Inskip’s sister)! We spoke about showing care for other people and how nurses do this. We also discussed how important it is to care for ourselves and how we can do this well. Some of us got to try on a nurse’s shirt and some of us shared our experiences of hospital, nurses and doctors.

Friday 1st October

We looked at our new book in English and tried on some dragon masks for display!

Thursday 7th October

In Science, we investigated how the weight of a projectile affects the damage of a jenga block wall! The water bottle weighed the most... which one do you think knocked the most blocks off?

Monday 18th October

Take a look at our finished clay castles! 🏰
