Class 2 Wow Wall 

Here are just a few photos showing how hard class 2 are working whilst learning from home. Well done to everyone. Keep up the great work and see if you can spot your work up here soon.  

Henry working carefully using water colour paints.  

Eli has created a beautiful rainbow to cheer people up.  

Evie wrote me a beautiful letter telling me all about the wonderful things she had been up to.  

Felix has been learning about Buddhism, he then went onto make a Buddhism lantern.  

Ella has been working through her reading comprehension skill booklet.

 

Here is part of a story titled ‘Camping’ by Harriet.

Tyler has super busy, one of my favourite pictures was on Tyler and his brother enjoying the den they had built during their home forest school session.  

 

Our focus in literacy has been ‘To the rescue’ a super hero story about Sid. We started by reading the story and learning actions to help us retell the story. Then we made a story map to help us to say the story aloud. From this we then wrote our own ‘to the Rescue’ story. To continue with our superhero themed learning we then looked at two books ‘Traction man and Man on the Moon’. We compared these two texts thinking about what was similar and what was different.

In history we have been focusing on the work and life and Isambard Kingdom Brunel. We write some great fact files and ended the project with an exciting visit to the Steam Museum in Swindon. In class we then wrote a recount of our trip.

To mark fair trade fortnight we have looked at the importance of fair trade and the impact it has on famers and their families. We looked at the story of Pablo the banana and designed our own fair-trade chocolate bar wrapper.

Traditional Tales

In class we have been looking at several traditional tales, we used Pie Corbett’s Talk for Write to help us learn the stories and write them.

The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Livia created a brilliant story map, she thought carefully about the main parts of the story and the order they needed to go in. Livia used some words to help her when writing the story but it is mostly made up of pictures.

Seb wrote a brilliant version of the story using his story map to support him.

The Ugly Duckling

The Ugly duckling really made us think about the words we use to talk about people. Lots of the children said they didn’t like the word ‘ugly’ and thought ‘different’ would have been much better.

This is Ava’s story map.

Here are Jessica and Eve’s version of the tale.

The Gingerbread Man

The children had great fun telling this traditional tale; some of the children already knew parts of it. We looked at how different books can have a slightly different version of the tale. Some of the books had a cow in whilst others had a pig.

Hallie created a clear story map which allowed her to write a good version of the traditional tale.

We wrote some instructions explaining how to make gingerbread men. We then got to have a go ourselves.

Harriet used time connectives to help sequence her instructions.

The Three Little Pigs

Poppy and Eli created great ‘Wanted posters’ that could be displayed to help find the wolf from the tale.

We had a bonfire to link to our Outdoor literacy learning. We thought about the sights, sounds and feelings we had as we sat around it. It was very exciting. Mr Jackson said if we were really good maybe next time we could toast marshmallows!
 
 
 
The Fire brigade was super! They let us have a go at using their hoses. They are very heavy but super fun. Miss Igoe nearly got Mrs Saville!
 
 
The synagogue trip was good. The children were able to see inside the lovely building and experiences something new and different.
 
 
Science was great fun, we did three different experiments and for each one we thought carefully about what might happen.

We have been looking at King’s and Queen’s from throughout history. We had lots of fun trying to work out who the monarchs were and when they ruled. It was fascinating finding out all about them, we especially enjoyed King Henry VIII. Here are a few pieces from the topic.

Tracey Corderoy was our next special visitor. She is a children’s author and trulycaptivated the entire class with her hands on workshop. The children had the chance to become illustrators which they thoroughly enjoyed. Class 2 have been working hard this term rehearsing for the Nativity. They have worked their littlesocks off and we can’t believe how amazing they have all been. The pantomime ‘Aladdin’ was a great success everyone loved it and took back lots of tips for acting on stage when they perform their nativity.

We very lucky to have a visit from PC Katie Lang last week. She talked to us about her work and things she did as a police officer. Katie told us about her uniform and some of the things she has to carry and when she uses them. It was very exciting! Katie also brought along the police car for us to have a look inside. It was great fun and we really enjoyed ourselves.
