Home Learning: If you would like to do some home learning please use your login in details to go on Lexia, Reading Eggs, Time table Rockstars/Numbots.
Reading records:We expect children to be reading at home three times each week.
Your child will bring a leveled reading book home every Monday and this should be returned to school on Friday so that it can be put into quarantine over the weekend.
The reading record will be checked by your child’s class teacher to ensure your child is reading three times a week at home.
Unfortunately if your child’s book is not returned on a Friday we will not accept it until the following Friday.
Your child will be provided with a plastic book bag to transport their book in.
PE: Monday and Wednesday- Children can come in their PE kit on this day.
Learning Challenge: Geography – Would you like to live on an island?
Our class book this half term is Katie Morag and the Tiresome Ted
This half term our Learning Challenge topic is ‘Would you like to live on an island?’ this is a Geography based topic. The children have learnt about human and physical features of an island and at the start of the topic we designed and made our own islands! We then used our senses to write a description of what our Islands look like and what you might see on them.
We also compared where we live to India! We had an exciting visit from Mrs Munton who explained to us what life is like in India and showed us lots of interesting pictures!
As part of our DT learning we practised our sewing skills and made luggage tags using felt.
Learning Challenge: Science – What makes a superhero?
Our class book this half term is Supertato.
Our Learning Challenge topic for this half term is ‘What makes a Superhero?’ this is a Science based topic. The children will learn about how to keep healthy, different food types, why exercise is important and how to keep clean.
At the start of our topic we had a visit from an unhealthy Superhero called ‘Healthy Hannah’. Hannah spoke to the children about all of the unhealthy things she eats. The children then came up with different ideas for how we can make Hannah Healthy.
As part of our English lessons we have been reading our class book Supertato. The children made their our own Supertato and wrote instructions on how to make it. We will be continuing our theme by making a manual on how to be a Superhero.
As part of our Science learning, the children took part in an experiment to see how different drinks affect our teeth. Our substitute teeth (eggshells) were placed in water, orange juice and cola and we are now awaiting the results.
Year 2 Superhero Day!
To Celebrate the end of our Learning Challenge topic ‘What makes a superhero’ Year 2 transformed into Superheroes for an action packed Superhero day! The children loved designing their own Superhero and made their own 3-D Superhero face. In the afternoon the children were challenged to complete a Superhero obstacle course where they had to balance on beams, throw objects at a target, build their strength on the tyre test and shoot the villains!
We have had a great day today, all linked to reading! We had a great assembly with a whole school story – We’re Going on a Book Hunt! Mr Barker, Mrs Gunning and Mrs Digby Read more…
