Welcome to Class 2
Our teacher’s name is Miss Hutton and we are supported by Mrs Sanderson and Mrs Bentham.
What we have been doing:
- We had a wonderful start to the term when Sensei John came to visit and share a Judo session with us.
- We had a visit from the fire brigade, who even let us use the hose!
- We have created some lovely work around the topic ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ re-writing our own stories and working on key vocabulary. We also created our own beanstalks!
The children have really enjoyed using talk for writing in literacy where they have retold the story of ‘The Magic Paintbrush’ and the instructions of ‘How to Trap a Dragon’. The children have produced some excellent pieces of extended writing.
We have been working really hard in numeracy and have become very confident with number bonds and counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. We have done lots of problem solving and reasoning around adding, subtracting, money and shape.
As part of international week children enjoyed designing and creating African necklaces (take a look in the Gallery) and participating in a traditional jumping dance.
In History children explored how transport has changed over time and were very keen to carry out some of their own research on the Ipads.
Children have worked very hard and have thoroughly enjoyed choreographing their own friendship dance to the song ‘Happy’ by Pharrell Williams.
Our current focus in class, is dragons. We are so excited to carry out our instructions and create our own trap outside!
We really enjoyed a visit from Martin the Minibeast man who brought with him lots of different Minibeasts for us to touch, hold and learn about. Look at the pictures in our Gallery.
