Small Worlds.

This week we have been using natural resources to create our own small worlds – we used our imagination and thought about what we could use the natural objects for.


“This is my world, it has chairs for people to sit and watch the sea”


“This is the beach, it has sand here and water here. There’s a big bench at the top so people can sit down and have an ice cream.”


“This is my forest for the fairies to live in. They can hide under these big trees here or they can sit at the sparkling table that has diamonds on it.”

The Royal Wedding!

As the Royal Wedding creeps up on us this weekend Class 2 have been learning all about the Royal Family. We based our assembly on it and also completed some Royal activities.

Class 2 were super confident in our assembly, they used their loud voices and were very clear. Well done Class 2!


Time Telling!

Class 2 have been learning how to read ‘o’ clock times this week! We were that good that we even learnt how to find one hour before and one hour later!

As our topic is Pirates we have been thinking about the different sea creatures. We created our own Under the Sea collages using a variety of resources.

Pirate School!

This week in Class 2 we have been reading Pirate School. We have imagined and discussed what we would learn at pirate school and how different it would be to normal school. We then wrote our own diary entries explaining what we have been up to at pirate school! The children came up with excellent ideas, they said we would learn how to build and drive a ship, how to make swords and also how to find treasure! Fantastic writing Class 2!

We then created our own treasure maps and labelled them!

Estimating!

This week in Maths we have been estimating. We learnt that estimate is a posh word for a guess. We also learnt that we must make sensible estimates.
We have estimated how many marbles in jars, how many pirates are on a boat, how many cubes we can fit in various size containers and how many cubes we can fit in our shoes.
Class 2 were fantastic at making sensible, accurate estimates!

The Commonwealth

As part of The Commonwealth we have been taken part in various activities – we have created our own flags, discussed and written about our favourite sports from The Commonwealth Games and painted our very own queens!

Easter Fun!

This week Class 2 have taken part in the Boiled Egg competition. We all decorated our boiled eggs however we liked, we had chicks, butterflies, superheroes, rainbows and many more!

Money!

This week Class 2 have been learning about money. We can now recognise a 1p, 2p, 5p, and 10p coin. We discussed how the coins looked, their differences and we ordered them from the smallest amount to the largest amount. We also used magnets to identify real and fake coins.
Some of us were able to find out how much money was in the purses by counting in groups of 2, 5 and 10!

Jack and the Beanstalk

This week Class 2 have been reading Jack and the Beanstalk! We have been measuring beanstalks and giants feet, we have created a story walk to help us re tell the story and we have all re wrote the story! We have also been creating our own beanstalks using cheerios and planting our own beanstalks!

Under the Sea

As part of our themed week for World Book Day we have been reading ‘Can a Shark Do Gymnastics?’ We learnt about questions and question marks and then had a go at reading and answering some silly questions about sharks.

We all came into school dressed in ‘Under the Sea’ costumes. How fantastic are they?
