This Term in Class 2

 

This week Class 2 have been learning the very useful skill of estimation in Maths, we have used this skill to help us with estimating: more and less than, addition, subtraction and even to answer some word questions.

 

In English we have read Charlie and his Dinosaur, which is about a little boy who is starting a new school, it explores his dinosaurs and his first day at school and we learn about Charlie and his new friend, who is called Digger. We then spent our week doing creative writing and writing our own version of the story, using subordination and adjectives.

In topic we have begun to explore dinosaurs as our topic this term is Dinosaur-Planet! We have written lovely descriptions of imaginary dinosaurs, explored interesting fossils and then made our own version of wheels on the bus which we called dinosaurs on the bus…we may have even recorded it!

 

This week Class 2 had a visit from the Dogs Trust and got to meet Rolo the dog (he wasn't real). We learnt how to care and look after dogs as well as how to approach them safely.

We have spent time in math's looking at place value, counting in multiples, partitioning numbers and all sorts of other useful mathematical techniques.

In English we have re capped our lovely holidays, discussing our favorite memories.

Later on in the week, we started our roaring new topic... Dinosaur planet, follow this space for more dino-tastic updates!

We really enjoyed the New Year disco with the whole school, playing party games and having snacks as a treat.

 

 

We have been super Christmassy in our lead up to the Christmas holidays, ranging from Christmas symmetry in Maths all the way to our ever spectacular nativity show.

Speaking of our nativity show Class 2 smashed it! I am a very proud teacher; Class 2 did amazing!

 

Maths

We have used our knowledge of 2D shapes to make Christmas designs such as Christmas trees and snowmen.

We have used Father Christmas to help us with symmetry…he managed to lose half of himself, what a silly sausage!

We made beautiful Maths mosaics which turned out to be presents and snowmen once we cracked the code.

Finally, we used our place value detective skills to crack some codes and figure out our answers, it was very exciting!

 

English

Someone very special will be coming to visit us in the holidays…Santa! Class 1 and 2 came together to write a letter to Santa to ask him how he is and to let him know what we might like for Christmas!

 

Art and DT

What goes better together than Art, DT and Christmas? Not much! We have been busy making Christmas trees, Christmas puddings, cards, and special boxes. If it is sparkly, fluffy, or Christmassy we have used it in our lessons!

 

Maths and English:

This week in Maths Class 2 has been focusing on the wonderful world of 2D shapes and where we can find these in the world around and how we can use them in our life. We then moved onto beginning to learn about the properties of 3D shapes, learning about how we can find them from all the way in the deserts of Egypt to our magical learning environments of Shenington C of E Primary School.

In English we looked at the Christmas story and how this was similar to our nativity play, we turned this into a story board and focused on verbs and adverbs, we wrote phenomenal work that made our books shine!

 

In other news:

We had a special visitor this week, Princess Cinderella! One of our classmates had their birthday, turning 107…We spent the day breaking the rules and definitely did not have hot chocolate for break.

Our nativity is going amazingly, we are very excited for our dress rehearsal on Monday and to let the rest of the school see how a nativity play is done!

 

Elf Watch

Melvin has been causing grief to Class 2, having already ate the whole teacher advent calendar, he is on the prowl for the chocolate that belongs to the pupils in class 2. But don’t worry Mr King has upped his game and Melvin is falling for his traps.

 

It’s Christmas time!

This week in Class 2 has been very exciting!

In Maths, we have been exploring multiplication using number lines and learning about the commutative law.

In English, we have been learning how to be bossy! We have been writing instructions on how to write a story using imperative verbs and time connectives. We have had all sorts of lovely ideas ranging from a hungry T-rex to a Princess on a mission to find a friend.

In other news, one of our class members was very excited to show us her Gold Award from Rainbows.

Well done, Violet! We are very proud of you.

 

Elf Watch

He tried, he failed…See the photo below of our Elf in action!

Mr King's tinsel trap stopped Melvin from stealing our advent chocolate, check in next time to see what evil plans Melvin comes up with and if we can stop him!

 

 

Class 2 has been exploring the topic of memories and moments that made us.

We have delved into our past in History and explored old and new toys (we did not like Mr Kings toy that made a lot of noise!).

We have explored different body parts and how they have changed as we have grown.

In Maths ,we have focused on the wonderful world of multiplication and how we can use this to explore the world around us.

In English we have been looking at the instruction making of Jam sandwiches! We helped Mr King to make one, we realised we needed more clear and direct instructions. It was rather hilarious when Mr King had a loaf of bread on his head. We will now be making our own instructions to make a sandwich of our choosing.

The love, care, and kindness we have had in our lives come from many sources but primarily our loving families! This has been explored in PSHCE.

In Art and D&T, we have looked at some of our favourite memories and made a picture frame and family portrait, which helped us to make a lovely memory!

The adventures for Term 2 have not finished yet, which means we have more memories to make! From our nativity to creating Christmas drawings with shapes we have lots of fun ahead!

Please some of our memories below (including three new children who may or not be trying to trick Mr King with new names…)
