Springtime and Easter Poetry

Class 2 created their own Easter and Springtime poem which they then shared so brilliantly during the Easter service in Church.

They also painted some beautiful pictures to accompany their poem!

This week, we have been reading, listening to and writing poetry. We found a large selection of poems which were beautifully illustrated. Then we acted as poetry detectives to find key words, vocabulary and rhyming words from the text.

 

 

Red Nose Day 18th March 2022


World Book Day 2022

Today we have celebrated the 25th Anniversary of World Book Day.
Everyone looked fantastic in their book character costumes! Thank you to all the parents for your support with this.😃

We’ve enjoyed sharing our books from home, writing character descriptions, designing book covers and blurbs and discussing our top five favourite authors, illustrations and stories.

Class 2 have been hard at work after their half-term break, learning more about castles.

– we have developed our historical knowledge through chronology, linked to different castle designs through the ages.

We also spent time on our Science topic of ELECTRICITY this week.

As part of this topic, we found out how electricity travels to our homes and we researched the different types of energy which are used to power it in sustainable ways.

This is some of our wonderful work for the week!

Class 2 Computing

Over this half-term, Year 1 and 2 have been developing their computer programming skills and knowledge using ‘Scratch.’

We worked in pairs to create our own backgrounds, add Sprites (figures) and added simple speech to support our topic work on Castles.

Well done everyone!

SCIENCE: Forces

Class 2 have enjoyed more practical science exploration using different sizes and types of balls to investigate forces.

We compared distances and speed on a range of surfaces, first making predictions about how far we expected the balls to travel.

Chinese New Year

We have been learning about the zodiac –  the story of the 12 animals who have a year named after them and we have celebrated 2022 as the Year of the Tiger.

Leaflets and posters were made following our research and we extended our knowledge, learning where the country of China is and some of its traditional customs, whilst recognising these festival celebrations that take place across the world.

 

It’s been a busy half-term in Class 2 and the children have made a wonderful effort and worked well to produce some lovely classroom displays!

Eco Schools- Sustainability and PSHE – Respect

Learning the importance of looking after our school resources and equipment helps things to last longer.

Our class rules, clear expectations and teamwork encourage us to respect the things around us.

 

Castles

At the beginning of our Castles topic, we focused on our own homes, then made comparisons of different homes and their features.
