Autumn 1 Week 1
The Marvellous Mice are settling into their new classroom and we are enjoying getting to know your child.
During our transition day in the Summer term, we talked about aiming high in Year 2 and the children each decorated their own hot air balloon. These look lovely displayed in our classroom.
We have enjoyed sharing 'Giraffes Can't Dance' by Giles Andreae.
We have talked about what happens in the story and have also enjoyed identifying the rhyming words. We then wrote about our own worries and things we are good at.
We have also enjoyed getting messy and making handprint giraffes.
We are enjoying our class story 'The Giraffe, the Pelly and Me' by Roald Dahl - especially when Mrs Robinson does the singing parts!!
The children have enjoyed spending time in our class reading corner and have all chosen a book to share at home. Please remember that there is no expectation that your child can read this - it is a free choice book for you to enjoy and share together.
Another important job this week, has been discussing and creating our class rules.
Autumn 1 Week 2
Thank you to everyone who attended our 'Meet the Teacher' presentation; it was lovely to see some familiar faces as well as meeting new parents.
The power point presentation is now uploaded onto the class page - just click on the large star near the top of the page.
Here are this weeks 'Tricky Words' for you to read and spell with your child. Don't forget to have a go at some of the spelling activities we talked about at the meeting; writing the word big, singing the word, writing it backwards etc. Let's make learning spellings fun!
Like a Rainbow by Y2
We have completed our first text this week using the sentence stacking approach. We thought carefully about each colour of the rainbow, working in pairs to collect ideas.
Autumn 1 Week 3
Look at our wonderful self portraits! The children followed a presentation to carefully draw the features of a face in the right proportions to each other. They then used mirrors to carefully look at their own special features and added them to their drawings. They then enjoyed painting their drawings to complete their artwork.
They all look fab on the hall display.
Can you spot your child?
Here are this weeks 'Tricky Words' for you to help your child to read and write.
In PSHE this half-term, we are learning about people in our lives who are important to us. This week we have talked about the qualities of a good friend. Our class decided that a good friend should be: caring, honest, kind, helpful and a good listener. We used these qualities to create our own friendship flowers in our PSHE books.
We are enjoying our class story 'The Twits' by Roald Dahl. Mr and Mrs Twit play some very funny tricks on each other, it has made us all laugh a lot. We are really enjoying the book!
