Star of the week update…

Hello!

Last week in Maths we have been learning how to repeat patterns. In English we are reading the book George’s Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl. George’s Grandma is really mean to him so he is trying to make a potion to turn her nice.

Our attendance this week was 99.7! We were close to getting 100%.

This week in Maths we have been working with money to add 2 amounts of money together using an empty number line. Then we had to find the change from £2.00.

This week in English we have been summarising the events of The Worst Witch with the characters Mildred, Maud and Ethel. We have drawn a story map to plan our own magical story.

We had a great day on Thursday when the snow arrived! Here we are playing in the snow.

Miss Cartwright & Miss Hodgkiss enjoyed themselves too :)

The Hodgeheg

the hodgehegOh my goodness I couldn’t wait any longer to post about this book! I am up to the part where he tries to cross the road at the zebra crossing, I hope he is ok! He sounds like such a lovely little hedgehog. I hope he solves his mission of working out how hedgehogs can cross the road safely.

Are you enjoying the book? What do you think might happen in the story?

Diary of a Killer Cat

Hi Year 2

I loved reading the book The Diary of a Killer Cat!! I thought it was really clever how the author had written the story from the point of view of the cat commenting on what the humans are doing – I haven’t read a book like that before! He is a cheeky little cat too!

Let me know what you think about the book…the diary of a killer cat

Giraffes can’t Dance

What a fantastic term we had in Spring 1! It all started with our trip to Knowsley Safari Park to spark our interest in Amazing Africa. We have explored the human and physical features of Botswana and Standish and produced art work in the style of Henri Rousseau. We became journalists when we worked in groups to present an enticing description of Botswana to persuade people to visit. The children wrote some fantastic descriptions of Gerald the giraffe and even learned how to use a thesaurus to expand our vocabulary knowledge.

Well done Year 2!

Magic & Mystery!

This term we are learning all about Magic & Mystery and are focusing on the book The Worst Witch. The children entered The Wood Fold Wizarding School dressed up as witches and wizards on Monday. We had a great day making wands, casting spells, taking part in a potions class and all the children attended a graduation ceremony to receive a School Of Magic certificate. Take a look at the photographs of our magical day!IMG_6033 IMG_6034 IMG_6035 IMG_6040 IMG_6041 IMG_6042 IMG_6043 IMG_6044 IMG_6046

Wow what a fantastic term…

The children have all really enjoyed our context Wild and have loved exploring the characters in the book Little Evie in the Wild Wood. The drama workshop provided by Altru was a huge success! The children were great at getting into the role of the different characters and loved swapping between freeze frames of the wood and Evie’s house. I have been so impressed with the writing they have produced and have felt like I have been transported to a wild wood whilst reading their stories and setting descriptions.

Well done to all the children in Year 2 for their fantastic performances in the Christmas production – you were all amazing! Party day was lots of fun and there was some fantastic dancing spotted during musical statues! Hope you all have a lovely Christmas!

We are all looking forward to the new term and our trip to Knowsley Safari Park.
