Class 2

Welcome to Class 2!

March

Last week one of our class came across a water colour painting in a book, which caught their attention.  We decided to use it as our writing inspiration this week.  This morning we started by looking at some water colour landscape paintings and watched a little tutorial of how to paint a misty landscape before setting off to do our own.  All the children were impressed with their work!  Next we are going to write some super descriptions of our art work.

Yet another exciting week in Class 2.  We started the week with a Viking Day, with costumes, bread making, wild boar hunting and making coins, and ended the week celebrating World Book Day - with more dressing up!  We've worked so hard in maths that the teachers got a rest as the children taught each other!  In science we've set up our cress growing experiments, so we're eagerly waiting for next week to see how they've grown.  We're testing different conditions for growing, so I hope we remember all the places that we've put the seeds!

This week we have been learning all about the great outdoors.  We've had a visit from the Wildlife Trust, where we learned about different birds, investigated habitats in our school grounds and went exploring with some binoculars.  We've followed this with our new science topic about plants.  Using our newly planted gardens, we looked in the different flowers at the parts inside, such as stamen and stigma.  What better way to spend a sunny science lesson?!

Our current science topic is creating a lot of opportunities for outdoor learning.  We're learning about habitats, so we've been studying our various outdoor areas, thinking of hazards to habitats and looking at different ecosystems.  Watch out - we're building up to a piece of work to persuade you all to be more aware of habitats too!

In our whole school Friday afternoons, one group went outside to look for things of awe and wonder - a perfect activity with the sprinkling of snow we've had this morning!  Class 2 children paired up with someone from Class 1 to follow up with some creative writing.  It was lovely to see how the older children took the younger ones under their wings and gave them tips and prompts to support their work, whilst the younger ones were inspired by the level of work by the older children.  Family Learning!

December

 

What an exciting time of year this is!  We've had a Christmas Dinner altogether, a Christmas party and a Christingle service, to name a few!

Class 2 have enjoying out 'Forest Friday' sessions outside recently.  This week we took our maths problem solving lesson outside with us and worked in small groups on our place value and understanding of number.  We have also been learning about capacity so took the opportunity for some practical work....definitely an activity for outside after Mrs Thornhill tried a very messy demonstration!

November

 

This term our Year 3's have joined Class 1 for some very exciting new opportunities.  They have been working with a group in Ambleside for some 'Inter-generational Dance' and enjoyed some yoga sessions with Kate.  They have loved practising their dance moves and learning some new poses, as well as creating some of their own!

We've had a road safety day today with the help of our local community officers.  Class 2 went outside to assess the speed of some unsuspecting passing drivers!

September

 

In preparation for our Harvest Festival, Class 2 have been working hard in literacy.  We decided to write a poem to perform in our special assembly.  We worked in groups to gather as many harvest words, thoughts and feelings, then gathered together to create our class poem, which we memorised and performed together.

In our recent maths topic we have been refreshing our understanding of fractions, using these paper strips to find equivalents and to help us with our questions and challenges.
