As a mini outcome for our topic; “What can you show the world?”, Key Stage 1 went to Hull College last week to watch the Pantomime. We were so excited to be in a real theatre with a real set!
The show was called “Once Upon a Time”. We had a fabulous time and we even got to meet the actors after the show!
Year 2 have looked at letter writing this term and have written their own letters. We are now looking at the story ‘The Jolly Christmas Postman’. The children created some fantastic signifiers to help them retell the story!
We are very lucky in Key Stage 1 because we have just had a bank of iPad’s delivered!
We are going to be using them to help improve our learning. So far, we have been using them for Lexia; an app that helps us with our reading.
These children say that Lexia is their favourite time of the day!
We have come to school dressed in spots for Children in Need today. There are lots of Pudsey Bear’s and Blush’s in school. We also have some very talented families who have designed their own t-shirts.
We also raised money by having a Bake Sale. We had so much fun eating buns and listening to party music!
We can’t wait to find out how much money we raised!
Miss Stathers’ Maths class have been learning to add a 2 digit number and a 1 digit number. On Thursday we were solving problems for the workers in the theater.
We had to read the question, work out what the question was asking and then choose a method to find the answer.
Our new text in Year 2 is ‘The Jolly Postman’. In this unit we will be learning to write letters. This week we have been looking at a range of letters and identifying the features. Next week we will be thinking of questions to ask the characters in the story and writing our own letters to them.
Year 2 have been learning about why we wear poppies this week. They have learned about what happens on Remembrance Sunday and looked at the poem In Flanders Field. Today we held a minutes silence to remember the soldiers that fought in the war.
To end our unit on Sense Poetry, Year 2 performed for the rest of the of the school in assembly on Wednesday.
They performed a poem learned by heart with signifiers. Then the children read aloud their popcorn poems.
It was fantastic!
This week Year 2 have been investigating what happens to our heart when we exercise. We did a variety of different exercises and the monitored what happened to our heart rate.
We found out that our heart beat gets faster when we exercise.
Year 2 are learning about sense poetry. First we learned a poem using signifiers.
Then we looked at the features of a sense poem.
On Thursday we used our senses to describe popcorn and then wrote our own poems!
Next week we will be performing our poems!
