Reading the Twits!

What an exciting week we have had reading the Twits! The highlight of our week was definitely acting out the chapter 'Wormy Spaghetti'. We had great fun being Mr and Mrs Twit using expression and thinking about our body language when we were performing our drama. There were laughs all round from the children and staff! The drama was then used on Friday to retell the chapter in the style of Roald Dahl. It has been a great week and we will continue with the Twits in English next week.

Looking at the story of 'Jumanji

We have been learning some new songs as part of the Ex-Cathedra visitors we had in school. We particularly like 'This song is a good song' and 'John Kanaka'. 
This week we have really enjoyed looking at the story of 'Jumanji'. Our imaginations have been active as we thought of our own event that could happen after the dice had been rolled. What fun it was! In Maths we have spent time revisiting all four operations and practising our calculation methods.  As Spring has just arrived we have been looking at the different seasons and how the weather changes. We have been geographical explorers too by comparing the North and South Pole. 

Learning all about Non-chronological reports

Welcome back after the half term, we have heard fantastic and exciting stories about what the children did during their holiday. In school this week we have been very busy, we've started learning all about Non-chronological reports and enjoyed a learning walk to Kings Heath to help us to write our own. In Maths we have been learning about Addition and Subtraction through practical, visual then abstract methods. Please remember that homework needs to be handed in on a Thursday to be ready for new pieces to be given out on a Friday. Thank you, Year 2.

What a busy half term!!

What a busy half term!!

 

Well another half term has passed us by. Where is the time going? We have had an incredibly busy and exciting half term looking at land transport, making our own vehicles and planting seeds to measure their growth. In English we have been creative writers looking at Journey and Quest by Aaron Becker. These books are fascinating as there is no text so we have used our imagination to create the story just from the illustrations. Our first week back after half term will be looking at the final book in the series called Returned-we can't wait! As Mathematicians we have spent time exploring fractions, time and money. Eating chocolate as part of our fraction topic was probably the best bit! 

 

We wish you a lovely and restful half term and look forward to starting another amazing half term! 

This first half term has flown by!

  This first half term has flown by! This week we have been taking part in the Attendance week, well done to 2J who are currently in the lead with the least about of late cards given and less absences.    At the end of next week the children will be receiving a topic challenge task, this homework is not compulsory but completion will earn homework certificates which are given based on time and effort put into the task.    Let's keep up the good work and smiley faces for our final week of Autumn 1.
