This week, Class 6 have been practising for their class assembly which took place on Friday – all about what we call having a ‘Growth Mindset’! This is when you keep trying despite something being tricky. We made our own posters with motivational sayings to inspire us to never give up. I was super proud of my class for putting on an excellent assembly, having not performed one for around 2 whole years! It was lovely to have the grown-ups back into school to watch us.
We have had a fabulous few days in Year 2. As an ice-breaker, we played a game of ‘Would you rather’ – we found this utterly hilarious! We also thoroughly enjoyed playing bingo by picking our own numbers up to 20. If we won, we got a dip in the new Class 6 prize box which was very exciting. Here are some photos…
In our PSHE lesson this week we learnt about human development and how people change over time. The children talked about what people can do at each stage of their lives as they change from a baby to an adult.
Class 6 have been learning about deciduous and evergreen trees. They had lots of fun identifying and naming the different trees in the school grounds and working out whether they are deciduous or evergreen. We found lots of deciduous trees like beech, ash and birch trees. We even found an apple tree!
Class 6 made clocks with ‘past’ and ‘to’ times and used these to help them solve time problems involving telling time to 5 minute intervals.
This week we have been telling time to 15 minute intervals.
Class 6 have been learning all about old and new toys and have enjoyed creating their own Cup and Ball toys.
We have been talking about good secrets (like a surprise birthday present or a surprise party) and ‘worry’ secrets in our circle time/PSHE lesson this week. We know that if someone asks us to keep a secret that makes us feel worried or scared we must tell someone who can help us and never keep these types of worries to ourselves.
This morning we noticed that a witch’s hat had been left in our classroom…Demeanor The Queen of Witches from the story Lily, Windy and the Witch had been in our classroom and left us a message!
She asked us to write a fantasy story all about her…or else she would drink our blood! 😧 The children wrote some brilliant fantasy stories about Demeanor, including lots of magical characters and fantasy settings. Well done, Class 6! 🧙🏻♀️
Class 6 have been adding multiples of ten to two digit numbers in their maths lessons this week.
