What a brilliant 8 weeks we have had! Class 2 have had a great first half term and have produced some work to be extremely proud of! We have been learning all about our Sitwell Superhero value owls. In Literacy we have produced some lovely work using the book Owl Babies. We have been thinking about feelings, performing freeze frames from the story and wrote a letter to the smallest owl Bill. Soon after, we had some very special feathered visitors (owls) that we absolutely loved meeting. We were lucky enough to watch the owls fly, eat their food and we were even brave enough to hold one ourselves! We produced some incredible information texts about owls.
As part of our Harvest assembly the year 2 children shared their super learning with the school and their parents. We performed poems, read our own poems that we have wrote and displayed our pastel art work. It was a really enjoyable morning for the whole school! We will shortly be auditioning for our Christmas Concert, Penguin Pete.
We have recently created our manifestos for our class councillors...the results will be shared shortly!
This half term we will continue work on the topic 'Cold Hands, Warm Hearts'. We will be finding out about Cold Lands in Geography and the animals that live in these habitats. We are looking forward to carrying out an Enterprise project to raise funds for Project Polar.
In Literacy we will be writing our own stories, Goldilocks and the Three Polar Bears and also using a film, The Polar Express. In Maths we will be continuing our work on addition and subtraction. We are going to be thinking about the importance of recycling and begin to build musical instruments using recyclable materials.
We cannot wait to get stuck into our learning!!!
We are all feeling super excited to start our new school year! On day one class 2 all arrived with big smiles and arrived ready to start their learning! Our new topic this term is ‘Cold Hands, Warm Hearts!’ We will be reading the fantastic book The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe throughout the term. We will be finding out all about cold lands and animals, famous explorers and continents and oceans. We will be making moving cold lands pictures. Over the term we will be thinking about our Sitwell Superheroes and how we can show all their characteristics. We will all be aiming to earn our next badge and move further up the tree. In maths we will be looking at place value and how to represent numbers in different ways, partitioning numbers and ordering and comparing numbers in practical ways.
There will be the opportunity to discuss your child’s new class and progress at our parents evening in October.
