Term 3 and 4
What a busy Spring Term we have had! Not only have we had visitors from 1666 and the Fire Brigade, but we’ve also visited Taunton and danced on the Playhouse stage!
We have really enjoyed our Great Fire of London topic and learning all about why today roofs are not thatched! Whilst we were getting ready for worship, we found Jethro, Samuel Pepys’ servant in the P.E cupboard! He taught us that people living in London had to carry water from the Thames in leather buckets to put the fire out because plastic hadn’t yet been invented!
Sophie has also been back this spring to help us develop our cricket skills. She was so impressed with our talent that she nominated us for Somerset Cricket School of the month and we won! We had a wonderful time having a guided tour of Somerset County Cricket ground in Taunton and getting to play in the same hall as the players. Check out the photo below of us receiving our certificate.
In Maths we have been working on our fluency and recall of the 2, 5 and 10 times table as well as the division facts. We are all now logged on to Times Table Rockstars to help us practice at home and at school. At the end of each term the top three Rockstars who have improved their recall the most will receive a certificate in Celebration Worship.
Thank you to everyone who came to watch our performance for Dance Their Socks Off. Getting to go backstage and change into our costumes before the performance made us feel like real performers. We hope you enjoyed our dance as much as we did!
Term 2 seems to have flown passed in Class 2 and we can’t quite believe 2018 is coming to an end! We have really enjoyed looking at the similarities and differences between Christmas now and Christmas during the Victorian period, we are very glad that we get to school and not sent out to work.
This term we have also been working hard on adding on and subtracting, looking for number patterns when we count on in 10s and making sure we can confidently count forwards and backwards.
Thank you to everyone who came to watch our Nativity performance, of The Inn-Spectors. We hope you enjoyed watching it as much as we enjoyed performing it.
We have had a fantastic first term in Year 2! We have been visited by both Ben and Michelle from Explorers Escape and Richard from Greenpeace, who have been teaching us how to reduce the amount of plastic that we use. We also took part in our own beach survey to find out how much plastic we have on Weston Beach!
We have really enjoyed our Outdoor Sessions on Thursday’s with Mrs Kuht and Mrs Drinkwater. We have had the opportunity to make friendship bracelets, explore our local wildlife and think about the different habitats we can find on the school grounds.
Please make sure you check out our stall at the Explorers Escape fair on Saturday 27th October on Weston Prom where we will be showcasing our work!
