What an action packed week! The nativity show was a great success with each and every child performing really well, remembering lines and actions and positions. The whole class gave a great account of themselves and their behaviour all week was exceptional in stressful circumstances!
We managed to fit in some important learning about arrays in Maths and continued developing our literacy with a recount of the Nativity play and Comprehension building activities.
Next week we have quite a few festive activities planned. On Tuesday morning we will be doing a 'Santa Dash' so could children please come in jogging bottoms and trainers as well as an extra festive element such as a Santa hat or a Christmas jumper to add to the seasonal spirit.
On Wednesday we have a pantomime happening in school.
On Thursday we will be having a 2L Christmas party! We would greatly appreciate any donations to help us to buy festive snacks. If you are able to donate then please do so on Monday morning. Children can wear party/Christmas clothes on Thursday.
Thanks again for all of your support,
Hello, can children please come to school in their white PE t-shirt and jogging bottoms (dressed for PE) for the nativity dress rehearsals and performances on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday please. If at all possible, it would be great if the jogging bottoms were as plain and as light in colour as possible! Thanks, Mr Logan
As we head into December there has been a lot of Christmas themed activities happening in 2L. We have been practicing our nativity play regularly and each practice is better than the previous one. We should be ready for our audiences next week! We also started work on Christmas themed craft by starting our Christmas cards. We discussed Winter and all the changes that come with a new season.
There will be no more spellings until next year.
It has been an exciting week in year 2 this week. We had a great time enhancing our learning of the Great Fire of London by recreating the fire in the playground! The weather conditions were perfect and the wind helped recreate how the fire spread from house to house quickly. The class behaved perfectly and sang songs we have learned about the Great Fire in our topic lessons. We then did some fantastic descriptive writing about what we had just experienced. We had a great last Judo session in the hall and we have been spending plenty of time rehearsing for our nativity performance. Hopefully we will put on a great show! If your child has come home with some lines to learn please try to go through them at some point over the weekend.
The spellings this week are : find, mind, gold, hold, behind, old, cold, told, everybody, every.
Another week of great learning in 2L! We have carried on deepening our knowledge of the Great Fire of London by writing diaries, creating artwork and making houses. In Science we explored the playground to look for objects made from different materials. We had a great dance session with our new dance teacher on Wednesday and even did some yoga in class when we couldn't have our playtime outside due to the rain. Thanks to everyone who has returned slips for singing in the park and for our trip to Chill Factore next half term. There is still plenty of time to return the slips for those who haven't yet.
This week's spellings are: flies, tries, replies, copies, babies, carries, cries, dries, marries, families.
Thanks, Mr Logan
This week we have been focusing on our topic of the Great Fire of London. We read the story of Vlad and the Great Fire of London and learned more about Samuel Pepys. We also created maps of how the fire spread. In PE we had great fun exploring the gymnastic equipment and developing our Judo skills. Just a reminder that next week we have odd sock day on Monday (school uniform as normal) and an own clothes day on Friday, ideally wearing something yellow.
Spellings for next week are: cry, fly, dry, try, reply, sly, shy, terrify, sky, multiply.
Hello and welcome back! I hope everyone had a great, relaxing half term holiday. We have spent this week getting back into the swing of things; writing firework poems and learning about Guy Fawkes in literacy and beginning our topic on the Great Fire of London.
It is parents evening next week and I hope that the slips with appointment times have made it home to you! (If not then I do have a master copy of the appointment times).
Spellings and homework have been given this week. There does seem to have been a slight issue with children who have forgotten their spelling books not having the next week's spellings stuck in for them to learn. I will from now on add the spelling list to the end of the weekly update.
This week's spellings are: pencil, pedal, fossil, capital, nostril, hospital, pupil, animal, metal, oval. (The /l/ sound spelt with il and al)
