Term 2 – We have had a very busy term in Class 2, we started the new term by catching a star that had fallen on to the field. In groups we thought about the best way to catch the star carefully, we then designed and built contraptions to help us get the star down. The star is now safely in our classroom waiting to go on the Christmas tree!
After our own attempt to catch a star, we read ‘How to Catch a Star’ By Oliver Jeffers. After learning the story through role play and hot seating (check out the photos below) we created a table of our likes and dislikes of some of the vocabulary the author used before having a go at writing our own versions.
This term we have also been focusing on how our number bonds to 10 and 20 can help us remember other number bonds such as those to 100. We had a lot of fun working in pairs to find as many number bonds as we can using a variety of equipment.
Our P.E lessons have had a gymnastics focus, we have been thinking carefully about how we can balance on different parts of our bodies, as well as increasing our upper body strength!
Everyone in Class 2 wishes you a merry Christmas!
Term 1 – What a first term! We have settled well into our new classroom and are really enjoying having a lovely view of our new playground as well as having lots of space.
This term we have been taking part in Outdoor Learning lessons on a Thursday afternoon with Mrs Fry, Mrs Drinkwater and Mrs Kuht. We have had the opportunity to explore the school grounds, as well as the local area. Our favourite part was getting to watch the ducks on the pond at Des Phippin park and drink hot chocolate!
Thank you to everyone who came to our class worship. We hope you enjoyed hearing all about our learning. We have really enjoyed writing our own stories and making our own puppets. We also hope we raise lots of money for Springboard.
