Class 2 have been sounding out CVC words and having a go at writing them! We remembered to use our letter rhymes to help us with our letter formation.
This week Class 2 have been rhyming! We have been matching rhyming cards and having a go at writing the words and we have also been building rhyming towers! We are very good at rhyming now, ask us at home if we can rhyme any words.
Last week class 2 planned how they would like to make their Supertato – this week we made them. The children thought about what resources they would need, what colours they needed and how they were going to put them together. Look how amazing they are!
In Class 2 we are learning how to sound out and blend three lettered words, i.e. cat or pin. This week we went outside and used water tubes to squirt the sounds as we sounded them out.
This week in Class 2 we have been learning all about 2D shapes. We have learnt the names of the shapes and also how to describe them. We know that a square has 4 sides and 4 corners, and a triangle has 3 sides and 3 corners.
We also created our own patterns using 2D shapes, we were extremely good at this!
We looked around our classroom and school for shapes we could find, we could see shapes everywhere!
This week Class 2 had a very special visitor – as we have been learning about People Who Help Us, the police came in to our school to tell us all about what they do. We were very excited and learnt so much. We know the police aren’t scary and that they are there to help and look after us.
This week in Class 2 we have been reading ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’. We really enjoyed telling the story together, making the noises and acting it out.
We created our own bear hunt pictures using a variety of materials.
We also created our very own maps to lead us to the bear, we labelled the map with initial sounds and end sounds.
This week is Class 2 we have been creating our own self portraits. We looked at the colour of our hair and eyes as well as the style of our hair. We were able to discuss what is special about us and how we are different to other people.
This week in Maths we have been recognising numbers 1-10 and matching them to the correct quantity. We made towers for each numeral, we then identified which number had the most/fewest. We also identified which tower was the tallest and shortest.
Our topic this half term is ‘Ourselves’. We have been thinking about people who help us and how they help us. Some of us created pictures of them on the computer, they were then able to tell me how these people help us and why they are important to us.
This week in Class 2 we have been talking about Autumn and creating our own Autumn trees. We talked about the different coloured leaves and then we used our finger prints to create the leaves on the tree.
