A fabulous well done to all of our Mathematicians of the Week from Autumn 1. You have all made a brilliant start to Y2.
In science, we have been busy learning about lifecycles and we enjoyed it so much that Miss Varley set us a task and we used TASC to help us to do this.
Task: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding about the life cycle of a butterfly.
Here is what we did:
We were so proud of each other for the work that we had completed that we invited Onyx class to come and have a look as we know that they have been learning about life cycles as well.
We even displayed our work in the classroom for our adults to see in a morning when they came into the classroom.
We have been learning about the artist Kandinsky this half term and we loved looking at some of his work and we were inspired by it to create our own.
This piece of work by Kandinsky is called ‘Squares with Concentric Circles’ and was painted in 1913.
Here are our versions:
We are proud to announce that these superstars were our final winners of the Summer term. Well done to everyone who has won this award throughout the year. Keep up the hard work in Y3 with Mrs Weet!
This half term, we have had the fantastic opportunity of continuing to learn how to play football with Ash from SUCF.
We have learnt lots of new skills and had brilliant fun getting outside, on the MUGA pitch, playing football with our friends.
Thank you Ash and SUCF – we can’t wait to continue to develop our football skills in Y3!
This week we celebrated World Book Day across school. Lots of children, and teachers too, got dressed up as their favourite characters and came to school for a day of reading and fun!
A big thank you to all of our parents and carers for putting in so much effort into everyone’s costumes! Everyone looked amazing!
We had to decorate our classroom door as our favourite book. At the minute, Pearl Class love reading stories by Roald Dahl so we decided to decorate our door with the first Roald Dahl story we read which was the Enormous Crocodile.
Everyone helped out with making our door entry and we had lots of fun creating the crocodile. We have also read other stories by Roald Dahl. They are The Giraffe, The Pelly and Me; The Twits and we are currently reading George’s Marvellous Medicine.
Do you have any recommendations for us about which story to read next?
Drop us a comment at the end of our post if you’d like to help us choose our next class story.
Next we had a walk around school to see everyone else’s doors and see which story they choose to decorate their door with. We were so impressed with everyone’s efforts – Well done everyone!
Which door is your favourite?
Next week, everyone will receive a £1 book token that they can spend on a special World Book Day book or use it towards a book when the Book Fair comes to school soon!
This week, some of Y2 were invited to an athletics event run by some students from SHU at Ponds Forge. We set off on the tram and couldn’t wait to get started. Lots of other local schools had been invited too! Once everyone has arrived, we made a start.
We completed lots of different events to practise our skills. We even had a go at some brand new activities too! Javelin was definitely one of our favourite activities of the morning.
At the end of the morning, we found out who had taken 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.
We were so pleased to hear that Prince Edward had come into 2nd place! We are very proud of ourselves and we can’t wait for the next invitation to join in with more sporting activities.
